Update


The family reunion has been postponed for the time being. Due to different things, the family decided to hold off on the reunion until a better time - like there is ever a better time. One of the aunties had already set her brisket to soakin' and now will have to serve it to her family. Darn the luck. I plan on going to WF tomorrow to spend the day with Mom anyway.
I also forgot to mention that today would have been my Dad's 80th birthday. This picture was taken in Taos by a stranger who asked Dad if she could take his picture because she wanted to paint him. Dad had a great look - didn't he! The stranger later sent Dad this photo. I aways wondered how the painting turned out. Dad's eyes were ice blue - I did not get that gene either.

I think you go that gene - your eyes are ice green. Hey, I tagged you on a meme.

Thanks Jesse, I like the idea of my eyes being like Pa's.

I would love to see the painting she did!

Your Dad has a face made for movies. Maybe the personality for it too?

You got your Dads genes, you look like him.
