This weekend I was going through some old picture and came across this one. This is dated January 1967. I would have been 6 years old. This picture just shouts 1960's! Check out the gray formica table with the white and gray vinyl chairs. How about that Coppertone refrigerator? The red, white and black tea kettle and pots cafe curtains were just lovely! I do believe that is a TV dinner I was eating, way before microwaves you put these frozen delights in the oven and 30 minutes later, you were dining in style! I also notice the depression glass milk glass, though at that time we wouldn't have known it was valuable. There are also some brown melmac coffee cups on the table, Mom must have had someone over for coffee.
In the lower right corner, I spot the "vaporizer". Just looking at it brings back the smell of the Vicks salve that you put in it.
This looks like a typical day in my life in 1967. I have no idea why my mom or dad would have taken this photo, but I'm glad they did. Just a photo of every day life. A very simple, uncomplicated life. Something I yearn for as an adult. Confucius said "Life is simple, but we insist on making it complicated". How true!
