Another Piggyback

The other day I remembered a certain picture that I would like to use in a blog and asked Cuppa in what album I might find it. She pointed me not towards an album but towards the big box of unlabelled slides. I soon gave it up then but have decided that if I plod bit by bit, I can better organize the box. So, I grabbed a set or two yesterday and looked through them and was hooked enough to stop and scan a pic or two. Since I have recently posted photos of Nikki Dee and Thesha on my shoulders, I was pleasantly surprised to find this one of Althegal or AG.

AG was never fond of the rough and tumble like Thesha and now Nikki Dee. But here at around the age of five, she sits on my shoulders with some sort of strange hat on her head.

Somehow it pleases me to find this particular, long forgotten photo. We were very close during her childhood years.

I love the 'blast from the past' pics. They're always so much fun to look at!

I love how old photos can instantly take us back to a forgotten time and place.. one of the many reasons why I love photography.

A delightful photo that brought back beautiful memories. Did you show it the Thesha? I'm sure she will remember the hat. Thanks so much for sharing. I always enjoy seeing photos from the past.

I love looking at old(er) pictures. Thanks for sharing.

I'm in the process of sorting through photos at the moment too, and some pictures just stop you in your tracks because they conjure up memories you've forgotten.

I had wondered about that, seeing you so close to your granddaughter. I wondered if you were always this way or if it a more contemplative you. And in your next post you claim that we are seperate people, our old and our new. I think this clearly points out that we overlap ourselves, and nicely too.
