Feeling Sentimental

Not sure why. Maybe Christmas is causing it all, but i’ve felt like a debbie downer lately, so i was looking through some more old pictures and came across this one and it just made me smile.

Dancing with Graham, 1973

This is my cousin, Graham, and I dancing at my Aunt Dot and Grandma’s apartment in about 1973. I don’t remember the name of the street they lived on, but it was an upstairs apartment in a house. No idea how, but they had a piano up there. I would give my right pinkie to know what song we are dancing to, but you can see aunt Dot (my Grandma’s sister) over there smoking and clapping along. She loved to dance!

I miss the big family gatherings and the crazy grandmas and aunts and uncles and cousins. Graham and I were best buddies, at least until those hangers-on, Lisa and Adam showed up.

And I don’t remember ever liking to dance, but i guess i did at some point!

    Quit making me cry! God, I LOVE this pic. I want a copy and I’m going to blow it up and hang it in the hallway. Aunt Dot really liked to dance.

    And don’t hate on me and Addy. You and Grey-ham were just jealous of our cuteness.

    Yeah, that picture is pretty much how I remember Aunt Dot always – smoking and clapping, or dancing, or drinking.
