Next stop....53


In honor of my birthday, here's an ancient historical photo from the last century. That's me and my parents getting off a train in 1961 or so; I'm not sure where. I was a big boy...dad is carrying me and my mom has his briefcase. A cigarette is dangling from his mouth. Oddly this is probably the only picture I have of the three of us together; most of my childhood photos, and there were never many of them, disappeared after my parents divorced in one of our many moves. They split when I was 9 or 10, and we never stayed in one apartment or house more than three years and usually much less; my father lived in six different states over the next ten years. This photo was probably taken by my grandmother.

Happy birthday me!

  4. Hey freebones, thanks. I actually didn't mean it to come across that way at all...I was just trying to put the photo in context.
