Today I’m looking through the old hard drive at old family photos. So I figured I’d take you on a little stroll down memory lane with me. Welcome to my life. Now this photo, I haven’t had very long. I’ve never known much about the woman in this photo, but I figured it’s a good jump off point.
This is my mother. Daddy says I look like her, but I really don’t see it. This is the only close up photo I have of her. I’d never seen what she really looked like til I got this photo back in February. The only photo I ever had of her she took while she was pregnant with me. This is Daddy. It’s an old photo, and not a good one either, but it was the one I was looking at today. Daddy’s gone all gray since I took this photo lol.
This is Grandma Hattie and me. This is the woman who raised me. Look how little I was! I’ve come a long ways since the streets of the Bronx. At least I’m almost positive that is where this photo was taken. Daddy lived in the Bronx back then, actually he still does. Talk about things that don’t change. At least he’s in a better neighborhood now lol.
I think I took this photo just after the move this year. He was probably laughing because he was torturing satellite kittah lol. He’d kill me if he knew I had posted these two photos lol. He doesn’t mind being talked about but he doesn’t like me posting his photos. I don’t blame him, I’m not a big fan of posting his photos either. Once a photo is out there, there is no getting it back.
Anyway… Lets start strolling again.
I have other siblings, but I never really see them. Heck I haven’t seen Aprill since 2007 and believe me no one is happy about it. My Daddy was just telling me yesterday that he missed me and really wants me to come home. I wish I could afford to go home this year. But I can’t. Maybe 2012 will be a better year. I really hope so. Daddy is getting up there in age, and while he isn’t sick, he isn’t 100% healthy either. I do need to go home.
That is it for my little walk down memory lane. I guess I’m really missing my family today. Maybe I’ll go call Aprill. Damn, better make sure I don’t have anything else to do first, I could be on that phone all day. LOL Ya’ll have a great day!
