My Mom's Scrapbook - Part 2

Last week I shared a brief overview of my life until high school, and this week I introduce you to the cast of characters that make up my family.

This was intended to be a 2-page spread, so pretend along with me that I am showing you the pages side by side. If you are creative enough in your brain, then you will envision a headline that reads, "Ties That Bind."

The picture of my brother and I (don't you just luv that blond hair?!) was taken with my Aunt Viola because my mom didn't want her picture taken. She sent our aunt in as a substitute mom. But that is okay, because Aunt Vi is cool. She used to listen to Little Feat and bought me 10 LPs for my 10th birthday. At the bottom right of this page is a great picture of my late, great-grandma Rosalind. She passed in 2006 and is now praising God in heaven. I miss her in a nostalgic sense, but otherwise know we will meet again.


Oh, and here I am staring as the Flower Girl in my Uncle Joe's wedding. I have no idea how old I was, 5 maybe?? And the bottom right picture just screams early 80's to me! The car, the clothes, the hair! Ugh! Thanks for helping me remember who I was Mom!

Next week, we'll take a look at my family after a divorce and remarriage... don't worry though, it won't be depressing. I can always find some way to make fun of my Dad!
