The dog is a blur: the nature of family photographs

Family picnic 1970s
My first attempt at scanning pictures.  

On the back of this photograph is a note in my Great-Grandmother's handwriting: "Out for picnic with families; Tom strumming his guitar."

The gal with the pigtails in the back is my mother, with Grandma N.  Aunt Carol, Mom's sister-in-law, is lounging on the chair.  That dog is probably either Uncle Randy's or Uncle Tom's.  Mom had 3 brothers, one of whom is the cool hipster with the guitar.

This is one of my all-time favorite pictures that I've excavated while "shopping" in Grandma's house.
