Happy birthday Mom! My mom is 58. The top photo is from the Westport Free Health Clinic in Kansas City, which my dad helped start, where my mom volunteered, and where my parents met. Founded in 1971, it was the second free health clinic in the country, I think, after Berkeley's, founded in 1969. My parents are on far right in the photo, my dad standing, my mom seated. The second photo is my mom in the early 70s. Below is my mom in New Mexico recently looking for cola and crackers.
