This is a photo that my mother took on the first day of school.
I was a Junior that year, my other baby brother would have been almost 7 years old and in 1st Grade and my baby brother would have been in 8th grade that year.
Looks like we have all the school supplies we need. This was way before book bags or backpacks. My mother must have thought my other baby brother was going to grow some and those pants could be rolled down as needed.
I think that plant was called Gold Drops. It was an old plant that almost everyone had in their flower gardens.
