1973 was a very good year!
The Vietnam war ended and Secretariat won the triple crown.  The movies "American Graffiti" and "The Sting" were hits; along with the record of the year, Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face".  Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (MRI technology) was developed.

  We built a new house for $32,000.

The median household income was $10,512.00 a year.  Bob had a good job, so I was able to stay at home with two of the most adorable kids EVER!
Jennifer - age 10 months
Michael - age 5
AND, look here --- I had a red plaid jacket that I made myself and Bob had hair and sideburns!!!
What more could anyone desire?  We've been blessed!
