Another Thanksgiving Memory...
This is the most bizarre picture in my entire collection! I'm so bummed that the scanned version isn't as good as the original.
At first glance, this is a picture of my Mother on Thanksgiving Day, 1992. If you could see the picture a little better, you'd notice that to her right is a huge fire truck... and just behind her is her home in flames. Can you see the flames in the windows in the background? Maybe if you click on the picture you'll get the full effect. Or maybe you'll just see a larger version of the same dark photo?
Yet, there she stands holding her purse-- containing every worldly possession that she could salvage in the few minutes before the fire. For some reason, I asked her to smile for the camera.... and she did.
