A rare photo of Ira & Carol

Filed under: Uncategorized — serkes @ 9:14 pm

We went to Yoshi’s in Oakland’s Jack London Square with friends Linda & Dick, and Linda took this photo of us. Linda and I met at UMass Amherst in 1971, where we were both in Graduate School. We’ve been friends ever since.

Why is it rare? Because I’m usually the photographer, and rarely in the photo!

Ira, Carol, Baby T … in our book-filled dining room.

Travel books Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Europe & United States – with special focus on NYC, are on the right, Design/Architecture with special focus on Art Deco on the left. Mexican Crafts and a little devil on the top shelf.

Colors were too subtle, so Carol repainted them to be more vibrant.

We love travelling across this wonderful country, particularly the desert and to major cities. Over the years I’ve been to 49 States – North Dakota is only one I need to complete the collection.

Was amazed to realize that I’ve visited over two dozen countries, including some which no longer exist.
