Me (avgeek toddler) Checking Out The May 1962 Flying Magazine (Circa 1963)

Me, the little avgeek toddler, checking out the May 1962 issue of Flying magazine!

 Finding my granddad's Private Pilot license issued on August 18, 1945 was really cool, but I also recently found this pic of me at about 2-1/2 years of age checking out the May 1962 issue of Flying magazine! Yep it's true, I got my start soaking up the world of aviation very early... and since the pic was probably taken in late 1963 (I was born in February 1961) I'm also displaying the important avgeek policy of never throwing away an aviation publication just because you've already gone thru it!

 I guess that points to another advantage of the internet over print... a post on the net never gets thrown away, it's always there just waiting for you to want it again. Oh, and would you like to read this issue of Flying? The internet to the rescue again: May 1962 Flying on Google books.

 This pic was probably taken in South San Francisco, shortly before a move up a little farther north to Petaluma California. My dad was flying for United out of SFO and my mom also worked for United but in the offices there on the airport. I don't really remember anything from this time in my life but it sure is cool to have such a neat pic of me, the little avgeek toddler : )
