In Indiana in the 70s, as in many other states, I assume, you got a new license plate every year. I have no idea how this tradition developed of making a ceremony of the changing of the plates, but it was a legit Grady family thing for a while. I’m posting this photo instead of any of the many earlier & probably cuter family photos because this is the first one in which my dad is wearing the beard that he has worn for the subsequent 35+ years. It would seem somehow weird to post one without it.

    An old Kellough tradition we just carried on. How brown Les’s hair and beard were! But you couldn’t be cuter.
