In today's Devlin family photos, we've moved from January, 1962 to three years later. Let's see, carry the one, divide by Pi, and multiply the remainder by seven... by golly, it's now January, 1965. Math. Maybe you should try it sometime.
Many of the photos in this batch feature (as the hand-written labels say) "Mama" and "Grandad". I can't help but think of my own wonderful grandparents and our trips to Disneyland when I see these photos. This first one is neat because M & G are posed next to the old-fashioned Bekins wagon, with its artwork featuring some spirited horses - horses that will go crazy and run down the street with your possessions! Now this is odd, because I believe that Global Van Lines had moved into the Bekins spot by 1963, and this is a full two years after that, so... what gives? Perhaps this was a case of a roll of film sitting undeveloped in a drawer for a few years.
Just up the street, the grandparents have discovered the colorful Flower Mart, which appears to be especially bustling. Who knows, maybe the park sold truckloads of artificial flowers. Something tells me that Grandad is being a good sport (as usual) while Mama checks out this side street. If he's like my grandpa, he wants to ride the Matterhorn!
Thanks as always to the Devlin family.
