Friday Family Photo--Christmas 1965

We were living at 911 W. Charles in Champaign, Illinois. It was a brick Dutch Colonial.  I'm wearing a blazer that my mother made for me for college--I still have it.  Bob probably still has that cardigan.  And we still have some of the furniture. This was our second home.  We kept the house on White Street and rented both apartments.  One apartment paid that mortgage, and the other paid the mortgage for Charles Street.  Both houses had nice hardwood floors, because 100 years ago, that's what houses had.  We didn't install wall to wall carpet, but bought carpeting made to fit the rooms on White St., then took them with us when we moved.
