my dad (and me)

I took this picture of my father while in Lexington earlier this week. We had just gone for a walk up to the corner and back. He is standing in front of our house and the huge linden tree that has overtaken one side of the yard. He and my mom planted it as a sapling when they built the house in 1959.




He told me they had no idea it would grow so large.

Maybe they had no idea one of them would still be in the house 53 years later?
