Happy Thanksgiving - Daily Analog Photo (Tennessee 1969)

I was in Avionics school in 1969 in Tennessee. During my 4 years in the Navy I managed to get home on leave for Christmas but not Thanksgiving. In Tennessee I traveled with a shipmate and shared a nice Thanksgiving dinner with his family in Arkansas, including a very interesting visit to Cummins State Farm  (his dad was a cook for the Prison).

My first SLR, an East German Praktica with a cheap 28mm wide angle lens
The car is a vintage Jaguar of a shipmate (from New Orleans)
That was a fun car to bomb around with, much preferable to riding the Navy bus into Memphis
