  •  I have some pictures in frames (9+ / 0-)

    that were my mom's that I haven't gotten around to hanging. It's not really my thing- hanging pictures on walls, but the pictures are too big to put in an album. Maybe someday.

    •  My dad (7+ / 0-)

      I didn't bring much home when my dad died. My parents were divorced, so the two deaths were separate, nothing left to my mother when he died.

      One thing I've always been glad to have were two framed poker hands. "Held Pat" - straight flushes dealt in five cards. The names of the players and date are listed like a caption, as well as all their signatures on the cards themselves. These other pictures joined those on the wall. Those cards are one of very few things I've ever put up on the wall.

      These pictures are a change.

      •  Very interesting idea (6+ / 0-)

        Was that hand just dealt like that? I could see why regular players would frame it - can't come up very often.

        We were talking about hanging family photos on a wall here, but there's a big imbalance between what I have (a lot) and what my wife has (not much). Her father's family lost what pictures they had in a fire in the 70s. Of her mother's family we have more, but some of these people are not her favorites. I don't think she cares, but I feel self-conscious about having a whole wall that's just my side.

          "Held pat" means no cards drawn. My dad played cards pretty regularly. I suspect he did pretty well, he was good at that sort of thing.
