On a lighter note...

1980 was a fascinating year for many reasons...among them the above book.

It was Grandpa and Grandmas 50th wedding anniversary and some of their kids did a lot of work. They collected family stories and anecdotes, old pictures, and other priceless material that nobody outside the family would care about but we of the family value more than all the money in the US Mint...like this picture.

Obviously, we did not realize the 70s were over. Jack, Jerry, Ken and Dad, Ann, Goldina, Joanne and Pat surround the happy couple, Grandpa and Grandma as the 8 surviving children all showed up for the gala.

All that hair and I get the bald Dad...what is up with that?

Anyhow, said book needed printing. Fortunately, we had a friend who owned a print shop. And he printed and bound the book.

I can only assume he did not charge much...after all, the fee was so cheap, it wasn't even nominal...(hint: read the last line to get the joke)

I don't think anyone in 1980 realized that the 70s were over...actually, I don't think anyone realized that until about 1983 :)
