I love this picture for lots of reasons. The people in it are my brother, Bruce and my Dad. When I see them together in this picture I think of all the boys in the family and the fun times I had sandwiched between 2 of them ... riding in Dad's pick up together and stopping for a can of pop, then laughing so hard at something while drinking it that the pop came right up our noses. Good times. The angle this picture is taken, showing all the wood (but you can't see the new wood floors) reminds me of "the old old house" where we were teenagers. We'd hang out in the family room with built-in bookshelves on every wall and an actual elevator that would carry you up to the master bedroom. More good times. On the right in this picture is a peek at my parents "Candy Bar". We're all non-drinkers, so although it's set up for beverages, my parents have filled it with candy and pictures. On the left and middle of this photo are old family pictures. Need I say more? These make my heart swell when I see them. The tiny picture just above that little table is a snapshot of some of us at a family reunion playing a rousing round of Pit. You can't see it, but there was a lot of noise, a bit of reaching and grabbing and a lot of laughing. You may be able to see that no one is sitting down, though Pit, a card game, is intended to be played as most card games are - from your chair. You can see a bit of the bookshelf on the far left. We grew up with books all around us and we all have a love of reading. Thanks Mom & Dad, and thanks to my brothers and sisters ... I got a great start in life!
