Old Photo Weekend


Sorry that I'm late today - I was out running errands, and I'm about to go out with The Girls to get some last items for school.

This photo is from November 1971 when we visited the then-new Magic Mountain in Southern California.

Now ... gotta shop!

So much foreground! I guess I was trying to get the water fountain in.

That's little AP3, dddragon, Acton Bell, and Kevin (ever cooperative). In fact, you're the only one looking at me. Had I taken too many pix that day?

Cute, as always.

That's the only Magic Mountain I have ever been to and man do I have quite a few memories there!

I love the photo!

I think I was 12 or 13 when I first went to Magic Mountain...must have been around 1972. Ah memories...

Funny, how we used to put on nice clothes to go to amusement parks. I can't believe we weren't wearing sneakers.

Oh, and it kinda looks like someone was murdered in the foreground.

Haha Acton, I noticed that, too. Let's hope it was an act.

I used to hate going to parks with Mom and Dad. They had more energy than I did.

Let's see, in Nov '71 I was 1 1/2 in Southern CA. And this weekend I was school shopping too. The coincidences abound!

3D, on Saturday I thought of you and kicked myself after I went to Williams-Sonoma for my Wasabi Green Tea soap & lotion set with matching scented candle. It smells wonderful and looks great in my kitchen, but...I could've called!!!

how the heck did i miss this post??? aieee! GREAT PICTURE! (they always are!)

the first and *only* time i went to Magic Mountain was sometime around 1982 or 83... after the birth of my first son... before the birth of my second.

hey, but i drove past it manymanymany times throughout the 70's while making frequent trips between my home town of Tulare, CA and Los Angeles and/or San Diego. so that's gotta count for something! xox neva
