My sister Sarah just sent around a whole fleet of old pictures of various members of our family, including a couple of very, very, VERY TINY me! Like this one, wherein it is demonstrated that even at a very tiny age, I liked to have books in my lap.
And then there’s this one, of me and my mother, circa 1971. She really did look like me. Except with a bigger forehead. I come by my GIGANTIC HEAD honest!
Here’s one of the good reasons to be on Facebook: a lot of my relatives who I otherwise would not be in touch with are there. One of my cousins found me there last night, letting me know that she’s putting together a memorial DVD to honor my uncle Marion who recently died and offering me a copy, which was very sweet of her. But she also has sent me a bunch of very old pictures of myself and my brothers and parents, and various other family members as well.
Including this, which is possibly the oldest picture of myself I have seen in YEARS. Good gods I am TINY. Check out that purple dress!
