photo of the day 9/15/2011.
Photograph of Mark I Chester next to the family car with the family duplex in the background. In the early/mid 1950s.

Pretty snazzy dresser. Whatever happened? ;) I love how I am squinting in this photo and in most photos from this time period. If people only understood how bad my eyesight really is. ;) Around the age of 5, I had eye surgery to correct what is sometimes referred to as a lazy or wandering eye. My only memory of that traumatic experience was being tied down to the bed in the hospital overnight so that I wouldn't *wander*. Maybe that one experience scarred me for life! Maybe I can trace my interest in bondage to this bizarre hospital regulation. Are children still tied down at night in hospitals? <eg> Inquiring minds want to know. ;)
