The address on my mother’s birth certificate lists where my grandparents were living at the time of her birth. Today my mom and I drove to that house, which is in the historical neighborhood called Mesta Park in Oklahoma City. It is a small home that has not been well cared for in recent years but I’m sure it was a cute home all those years ago.
When Mom saw the yard, she realized that a photo we have of her in a highchair was taken in the front yard there. Below is the photo of my mom standing in the front yard today with the photo overlayed of her as an infant in her highchair in the same front yard. I tried to align them so you can see the how they match up.
I did take several really adorable photos of Purrkins but decided to spare you from the redundancy.
