    ... and it's a real shame.  We should all take it as a reminder to label the people in our pictures, since they'll likely outlive our memories.

    •  Yup, as I mentioned in a diary not long ago (4+ / 0-)

      my mom couldn't identify some of the people in the old photos I'd found, including some tintype photos. When I went to her funeral in July, I asked her brother if he knew who they were and he didn't, said it must be on my dad's side. Has to be dad's paternal side as we already know about dad's maternal side- the great grandparents on the flash drive mentioned above. Even if I haven't yet found out who they are, I at least have only one line to concentrate on.

      Live your life. Take chances. Be crazy. Don't wait. Because right now is the oldest you've ever been and the youngest you'll be ever again.-- some wise person on the Internets.
