Old Days, Part 2
This was taken in the 1970s at my grandparents’ home. That’s me, looking through old photos with Nana (my grandmother, Emilie), my dad, Coco (my grandfather, Morton) and his cousin Johanna Eckstein. Her father, Nathan, was a great man in Seattle. (In looking this up, I found a superb historical resource on my mother’s family, the Schwabachers.)
Senior High School Portrait, 1977.
My closest high school friend, Bonnie & I working at Seabeck Conference Center (camp), 1977.
Summer Staff at Seabeck (I’m in front, right).
Debbie, Jim & me at Nana’s house.
On an art study program in England – 1979.
West Dean College, England 1979.
Graduation photo, 1981.
Getting that diploma, cum laude, in the Illinois humidity, with multiple mosquito bites on my legs. Hooray for cap & long gown!
Housemates pose after the graduation ceremony. I’m in the middle.
With my first car, outside my apartment in Boston, 1981.
Even though the marriage was a disaster, the flowers and the dress were pretty.
Me, Jim, Dad, Mom & Deb, 1982.
With former grandmother-in-law (she was a competitive ballroom dancer, decades before Dancing with the Stars). Like my 1980s ‘do?
Here I am with friends from college days, late 1980s.
With friends from Hollywood, during another era, just before I met Gregg.
