And yet another

Filed under: Childhood Memories,Family — Janice @ 1:38 pm

It’s almost eerie when a picture keeps coming up over and over. I chose the picture of me and Mackie playing in the gravel 2 days ago and posted it and then yesterday easily found another one of that same day in my computer. Today I am REALLY doing some cleaning in my office (how many times have I said THAT?). I pulled everything out of my file drawer where photos end up. There are albums and boxes and envelopes full of photos. My intention is to scan them all. Of course, being as organized as I am, I am sure I am going to spend the afternoon re-scanning photos that have been scanned before, but are labeled in such weird ways I can never ever find them.

So I have this giant pile next to my desk of boxes, albums, and envelopes. And out of the corner of an envelope peeks out THIS picture. Another one of that same day that I had not scanned before. I know I hadn’t scanned it because it had ended up trimmed and in a large frame with other photos that we only recently took out of the frame.

I wish I had the photo know-how to fix the scratches on Mackie’s face, but I don’t. My mother was wearing the coolest sunshades in the world. What I would give to have those today!!! (at least $10 or $15, usually my limit for shades)

And I don’t quite know what was going on in this picture either except maybe mother was giving us tips on how to beg for coins to cars that pulled up to the stop sign. “See, just hold this hat, look pathetic and say, ‘Please sir, I’m hungry.’ Now get out there.”

  1. Yep, that was exactly what she was doing, but I guess it didn’t work as the family remained skinny. (uh, right?)
