Friday's Photo: What are the chances?

This photo fell out of my childhood album when I was looking for an old family vacation photo. On the back was written "Wanda and Arnette." From age 12 to age 14, I worked as a volunteer each summer at the Good Neighborhood Kindergarten near my home. I played with the students and helped with clean-up and art projects. This photo, taken at Good Neighborhood Kindergarten, was dated 1968. What are the chances that this is my friend, Wanda C.? 

Wanda C. and I work in the same building. We met about 10 years ago when, I transferred to my current job. She corrects and submits my travel reports, helps me with orders for classroom materials, and is better than a GPS when I need to find a school or neighborhood. When you hear Wanda's voice on the phone, you usually know that you forgot to sign something or your numbers just didn't add up.

Wanda C. and I grew up in the same part of the city. So what are the chances of our meeting in 1968? Apparently the chances were good because, after scanning the photo at 1200dpi, although a little fuzzy, I could see that it was definitely a young photo of Wanda C.
