Sister

My favorite picture of me and my sister. This was taken by our mother in 1971 in Southern California, as were on our way to the pier to fish (back when kids could actually do that alone).




















I had the bucket, the the tackle box and my fishing pole. My sister carried her fishing pole and our lunch.

Oh man, that's precious!!!! I love it :-D

I think you should call her up. It seems like a good day to end a fight to me :)

Thanks for taking Mom and me around the town and surrounding areas today. I had a fun afternoon. Now, if only the wind would stop.

You look kind of Opey Taylorish ;)

Thanks for sharing the great picture of you and your see-store.

I'm with TC, even if you don't want to call, maybe a letter or card would be a good start to some mending. She is what she is, you don't have to be her friend.

You can't pick your family.

I know others that have been severely fucked over by family and had to sever ties for good, but I don't think you are in that same boat. ?

I understand the strain some family members can cause, so just send a card or even better, a copy of the picture and leave it at that?

Love to ya you fucking Spanyard ;)

Ask Mizz Hairy Pitts bout that ;)

Love to you my dear buddy!!!!

I mizz you ;(

I agree with Nay - you get what you have...aren't you the one who keeps telling me the same thing about my Mom? Things won't change unless you take the step. Even then they may not - but you will hate yourself if you don't at least keep in touch, if only in a "familiar" vice "familial" way.

Major cool pic dude!

When I was a kid my mom taught me about stranger danger, and then I went on my merry way ALONE. Yes we had perverts back then too but we did our thing and we did it with no cell phone! Did the kids just get really ignorant between now and then? What happened?

Sorry dude but I'd have to say Fuck that, fuck that, fuck that shit if you know what I mean.

TC: I’m glad you like it. I’m thinking about trying to touch base with her again. :-)

Shelley: You’re very welcome. It was a nice day!

Nay: If only I had Opie Taylor’s fucking money! ;-) I know all about Miz Pitz’ family fun. You’re right…you can’t pick family. Thems is words to live by. Miss you and love you, stranger.

Shelley: Yeah, yeah. I do tell you the same thing but, in the immortal words of George Carlin, “Do as I say, not as I do!” ;-)

Miz Pitz: Glad you like the picture. It’s my favorite picture of me and my is. Yeah…how did we survive without pagers, GPS tracking devices, alarms, and harnesses? It wasn’t as bad back then, but I think we had a little more sense.
