Sadly, there aren't many baby pictures of me. The few that were taken with a Kodak Instamatic Camera are black and white and blurry.
One color 8 x 10 still hangs in my mom's bedroom in Fair Grove, Missouri. A professional portrait by Fred Fox or some other Chicago area photographer of the time. Someday I'll snatch that up with the rest of the photo albums, but for now I'll let it remain on her wall so she can pretend she likes me.
Of the photos I have in my possession, this family shot at the zoo, circa 1963. No exact date, but judging from my size and those shoes, it must have been close to my 1st birthday in October.
Introducing, my dad Jan, my mother Lillian and me, Megryansmom in a Friday Flashback.
p.s. I have no idea what all the fuss was about Ling Ling and Hsing Hsing in 1972. Clearly we had pandas at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago in 1963!
p.p.s. Go visit TMI for more Friday Flashbacks!
