August 1975 - Neighbors & EAA


This roll starts out in the backyards of Bitters Court and then moves to Oshkosh for the Experimental Aircraft Association Fly-in, now called EAA Airventure.

 

Coco, the neighbors West Highland Terrier.

 

GI Joes posed on the swingset.  The middle guys appear to be involved in some sort of rescue.  Not sure about the guys on the left.  No wait, I am sure.  It is some kind of fight.  Not what you are thinking!  Sheesh!  And actually, the swingset is in the background.  They are posed on a cool little jungle jim they had back there.  This is all before they put in the pool, which was fun too.

 

The back door.   I think that is Mike.  That door led to a mudroom, something I had never seen before.  I'm not even sure that's what they called it, but that's what it was.  Then you went through the powder room to get into the house.  (Right, Mike?  Am I remembering that correctly?)

 

Mike on skates.  Those are the 1950's metal ones with the skate key.  We all had a couple pairs of those from our Moms & Dads.

 

Now we're at the air show.  I tried to take a picture of my Dad and brothers with a cool plane, but that kid walked in front.  He saw that he did so and apologized.  I noticed he was carrying a cool model plane and was kinda glad it ended up in the shot.  But, as it turns out, you can't really see it.

 

We did see a Ford Tri-motor though.  The 'Tin Goose' I believe it was called.

 

Another shot of Dad and my bros. in a plane.  Jon and Dad pose for the photo.  Chris looks for evidence of drug running.

A note about photos.  Although these photos are on the web, there is no link to them so they will not be found by search engines.  I also have avoided using any last names, hometowns, etc. in the descriptions.  Really the only people who should see these are the ones I send them too, but if you have concerns with these being on the Internet, let me know.  Eric Elfner, the original photographer, retains the copyright to all photos on this site.
