Throwback Thursday

I don’t want to talk about my finger tonight. It’s fine and I can do a lot more things every day and by the time I actually get to see a bone doc (Tuesday morning), I’ll probably have to schedule surgery and go through the whole damn thing again. At this point I’m pretty sick of talking about it. So let’s do a random throwback Thursday instead. Actually I was looking for pics of Liz the time we were at my brother’s house and she fell and broke her arm while playing a circle-y type tag game on the grass. He had recently installed a sprinkler system so the grass was wet and slippery. For the life of me I can’t find a pic of her cast. She was in 8th grade and by the next year we had a digital cam. But here are a few other random old pics I found.

One of my faves ever. When I was a beach urchin, driftwood and pulp logs were all over the beach. Hardly anything like that any more. This was somewhere in between. Don’t you love those long t-shirts.


Here are my baggy old parents making uglies on the beach more years ago than I’m strong enough to count.

grandma face and grandaddy

And here are two of their grandchildren sorta emulating them.


Both of those photos are about the same vintage and I am pretty much done for tonight. The GG is ruminating about what life might be like without the internet and I am reminding him that we both grew up living life without the internet. I wonder if he has read the bone clocks book yet…

    I haven’t been doing Throw Back Thursday lately; I think it’s becoming increasingly difficult for me to look back. More painful in some ways than it was when I was closer to those days. I didn’t realize that surgery was on the horizon. 🙁

    You’ve got me curious so I’ve downloaded The Bone Clocks to my Kindle!
