Photo of the Week
December 21, 2003
While wondering what I could post as a photo
of the week during this most holy and special time, I found this very
special photo in an old family album.
This photo was taken at Christmas 1948 in a Canal Zone 12 family
house in Diablo. This
Christmas tree was my Mom and Dadís tree with their presents.
This photo is so very special, as I see a few items that are still
in my possession today. The
table that the little Christmas tree is on I still have along with the
carved wood Buddha Lamp. The
radio my brother has. The
other items are those that would be typical of a Canal Zone Government
Blue Collar workerís gifts in 1948.
A pair of shoes, jewelry and a African violet for my Mom.
Socks and some Old Spice Cologne for my Dad.
There appears to be a rubber mouse present that would be typical of
my Dad as a prankster he was. There
are some other items too, but it was a modest Christmas in 1948 for my Mom
and Dad while living in the old Diablo 12 family quarters.
May our Canal Zone Christmas memories last forever!! God Bless you all and I wish all of you a wonderful Christmas and the best New Year to come.
