Birthday thoughts and old photos

Finding another trove of old black and white photos yesterday in the garage brought back memories and questions as another year starts and another ends as a birthday approaches.
Never before seen--two small 1" by 2" photos of my dad Terrence Miller Clark as a junior in Comanche, OK high school, 1930-31.
 Then some of me through the years.
No caption necessary

With Mom, Jerry and uncle Mike at Grand Canyon
On Sandia Base, Albuquerque, cloud covered Sandias in background
And some of the people responsible for it all, Mom, Francis Faye Culp Clark, and Dad
In Taos, 1950s
