This photo was taken at my parents' house c. Easter 1976. We both look impossibly young. I'd've guessed this was B.C. ("before children"), except that snazzy leisure suit was something I wore in seminary and in my student appointment, about 1975-78. I didn't have a mustache when I went off to seminary in early 1975, but I did when I started pastoring at Pleasantville in mid-1976. Zach was born in November, 1975.
