Mom's Sunglasses are Devoon
By the happy look on Mom's face, Barry Goldwater hadn't gone down in flames yet in the '64 presidential elections (if you're interested, you can read about him here). I actually wrote an essay on how wonderful Goldwater was around this time in English class and received an A+ with a note from my teacher literally praying that he became our next President. Aaaaah. Too bad.
OK--forget Barry Goldwater. What is REALLY cool are (1) Mom's sunglasses, (2) Mom's purse (oh hell, Mom's ENTIRE OUTFIT), (3) the Richie Rich comic in little Cynthia's hand, (4) the Nestle's chocolate bar....drool....being given a model's pose by Sally, (5) the gosh-darn-it-you-always-were-the-cutest-sister smile on Susie's face, and (6) the awesome LA Airport architecture.
We moved from LA to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1964 and by 1968 Sally and I were starting to evolve into what my father liked to refer to as "gee dee pinko commie hippies."
I wonder whatever happened to those sunglasses . . . Sigh.
