then–circa 1964; now–summer 2010

photo my grandmother had, circa 1964
those are not freckles across my nose, but grime (outside playing grime)

photo i have, summer 2010
those are not shadows across my nose, chin, forehead and upper lip, but grime (outside playing art tire grime)

and then there is what i once thought was a doll that i played with when i visited. i loved this doll. even my brother remembered it. (yes i know it is a whisk broom but she danced and glided beautifully)

and a several historical newspapers like,
