Card Playing

This was typical of my youth – playing cards with the family and friends.  This was in the early 1960s – Mom, Dad, Thelma and Jim Humphries, Jean (my sister) and Jerry Crews.  There is a Christmas decoration on the table and you can tell it’s winter – there’s a heater under the table.  This house, built in 1960, has radiant heat in the ceiling.  That works okay except for under the table!  Hence, the heater.  Other trendy things in those days:  over my sister’s head is the intercom – with stations in every bedroom, in the garage, and on the patio; the pull down light fixture; the aluminum window frames (to conduct heat in and out), and though you can’t really see it – on the right is a pink formica bar.  Oh I wish I still had that wonderful, now retro piece.
