Here is my dad, Paul H Weaver MD, with his signature pipe at home, with his white shirt and tie, serving up a New Years snack with the Christmas "tanne" or fir tree in the background. In 1958, he had practiced in Faribault for 19 of his 36 years in town as a general practitioner with the Faribault Clinic. I was a boy of 11 when I took this snap shot of our annual New Years celebration in our home at 425 SW 3rd St.
My mom, in 1958 with a snap shot I took of an Indonesian cloth, I think is a kind of batik -----I still have one of these ---she got it from a international stamp collector!
1958 Tom Weaver with a collection of Malaysian butterflies that his mom request from a scientist near Malacca who was a postage stamp collection ---large Atlas moth - very excited boy then, building on my interest in Nature and respecting all of creation ---
I went to the Pelican Lake Cabins with my parents in North Central MN, and here in October closing up the cabin before the October freeze!

One of my favorite childhood photos, that my dad took, Age 11 a sitz spot, a sitting place in the forest by Markee Lake, Crow Wing Co, Minnesota -- Oak and Pine forest where I still feel so very much at home ---the tree and plant nations are some of my best friends still!!
