    The Way We Were

    I'll try to find my Fawlty Towers photo and post it up later today.

      1979-ish. L to R, my grandfather, my asshole ex and me at my parents' house. We must have had a big family gathering, because I see folding chairs and a table that were not part of the regular furniture. Check out my dad's computer in the background. Those books on the bookshelf are his computer programming books.

      The more I look at my ex, the more intensely I hate him.

        It's a great photo. Wisdom Instructing Youth.

        Were you married at this point?

          No, we lived together for a few years before getting married (in 1983). I think this would have been fairly early in our relationship.

            Your grandad looks a good deal like ms. ursus' father, though I imagine that they sounded absolutely different.

              Here's another photo of my grandfather (L to R) my grandmother, grandfather, mom, younger sister and yours truly. We are at Niagara Falls (obvs) 1965-ish.

              These are my dad's parents.

                    Hell yeah.

                    Cut the sleeves off a bowling shirt, Mitre sneakers, rugby shorts, bandana. Surprised that I am clean shaven.

                    I'm quitting while I'm ahead.

                      You look like you might have had a side gig teaching an aerobics or jazzercise class.

                        I was in decent shape, but would be seriously hard pressed to lead an aerobics class!

                                Have you all got these photos on your computers? I'd post one of mine but all I have are print copies. Would scanning work?

                                  Yes scanning works. Here's a scanned one

                                  Left to right: me, my grandmother (who kept telling my dad "why don't you tell him to shave that awful beard off and cut his hair?") and my mum.

                                    Is that the back of noj's head? With the shiny hair?

                                          That was a dumb terminal connected to an IMSAI 8080 computer, which you can't see in that photo.

                                            I found an old photo album last time I went to my mum's. Currently too ill to bother to get out of bed and scan photos, so here's a photo of some photos.

                                            The bottom photo is me and my grandmummy (always grandmummy, not grandma or grandmother), c. 1986.

                                            Top photo was some sort of dress up day at school c. 1992.

                                              Ad Hoc, it looks like you have an empty plate there, while everyone else is tucking into a pile of chicken and veg.

                                                  1989 I think, over the sea to Skye.
