Fellow Retroblogger and go-getter Pam at RetroRenovation.com just launched a new blog - Knotty is Nice, all about vintage knotty pine paneling. She contacted me prior to launch and I was more than happy to allow her to feature this great photo of my dear old (but young at the time) dad – in one of the premiere posts!
Here she lists 5 Reasons Why Knotty Pine was so Popular and gives a lil ol shout out to both Retro Roadmap and my dad. I’ll have to post about this on my Cousins Facebook page to see if anyone knows who the mystery folks are, or where this photo was taken.
(We had knotty pine in the den of our house growing up, and in the cellar, but it has long since been replaced or repainted. Mum says the kitchen was painted “Pepto Bismol Pink” when they first moved in, but she painted it over with “Mobil Yellow” – paint she inherited from one of my great-uncle’s Mobil gas stations.)
I sure do miss my dad, but it’s nice to share the image of him young and happy, with the world. He was a great guy!
