Who’s That?

Vacation days spent with my sisters are always filled with laughter. Picture a cardboard box filled with old family photographs overflowing with memories and questions. Since they came from an elderly aunt, many of those pictures are of people we don”t know. It was fun to see our father and his sisters in their church clothes, probably posing on one sunny summer morning. Many were strangers dressed in old fashioned outfits, but even some of our contemporary cousins were difficult to recognize in their youth. Earlier photos of my own sisters and brothers brought spasms of laughter – “What are you wearing?” “Who cut his hair like that?” “Where were we?” “Doesn’t she look like . . . ?” Precious memories, making them and sharing them.

  2. I wonder if it’s more fun to go through a box of photos pulling them out at random or look through chronically placed photos in albums? Sounds like cherished moments with your sister. 🙂

  3. “Vacation days spent with my sisters are always filled with laughter.” Oh how true this is. My twin sister and I just spent 11 days together – just the two of us – I laughed like I hadn’t in years.

  4. Yes! There are nothing like days with my sisters. This summer one of my sisters found my mother’s old slides – now we’re looking forward to a day like what you describe here. 🙂
