Sometimes in life you have to make the time to sit back and look at some good times that your brain has just decided to leave out of its memory bank. Pictures are a capturing of a mili-second of time, a time that was REAL, an event that HAPPENED.
I was editing some of the old slides my Poppy had scanned a few years back and found there were quite a few of just me and my Dad. In most all of them I am smiling and in all of them he has stopped his busy-ness just long enough to "kick-back" with me.
A part of me smiled each time I came across one and I enjoyed the feeling of peace and contentedness that it brought my heart as I discovered each one. There are many more slides to be edited, and as I do I will choose ones to put up, but this is what I found for now.
Poppy and I @ our dining room table. We had this table and chair set until I was in High School. The chairs were gold and made of a plasticky material. I'm not sure what I'm smiling about but it looks like we were talking about something and I must have been about 3 or 4 years old.Like the avacado green cabinets? Totally 70's. This is about 1974 and we're either having a glass of Pepsi or grape juice. Looking @ this, I seem to remember sitting on the floor to drink a lot. We had a carpeted dining room so my Mom probably didn't want us carrying our cups out there. HEY- this was before sippy cups! I'm not sure what is up with my Dad's socks, he must have just come in from working outside.
Here's Poppies feeding me something...his hair is messy so he must have been sharing his breakfast. I think this is very sweet and like how I am looking at him instead of the spoon. And I so remember those bowls, they were so funky!
Woah, I just clicked on the feeding and drinking pictures to see them in a larger size. I cannot believe how much TSE looks like me. Scroll back through some of my older posts and I'm sure you'll see it. Quite freaky!
