Photo Hunt: Missed

The first three photos weren’t taken by me. In fact, I am in them. They were taken just after my Mom and Dad (step-Dad) were married.

They definitely qualify in several ways… The photographer “missed” the cat. I “miss” those days… and My Dad is “missed”. He died in 1988, a month to the day after my birth father. I miss him still.

I’m on the left in this photo. My step-sister and step-brother are the other kids. Skimmie the cat and Rajah the dog.

NOTE: Blogger is down. She’s using her WordPress blog.

My Dad and my brother during a birthday party. I’m not sure whose birthday. Possibly my sister’s. My Dad at his best. Enjoying a joke (probably his own and probably REALLY, REALLY bad). One of the few without a cigarette hanging out of his mouth.

The earliest photo of my Dad, on the right, at age 2 with his sisters, Amy and Mehru. Probably his birthday photos.

And doing what he liked best, aside from working. On one of my birthdays, in Luskville, Quebec.

    Great family photos! Love all of the old, b&w ones. I live far from my family, so they are always missed.

    Happy Weekend.

      My Dad and I had an odd relationship. I didn’t realize how much he meant to me until my birth father arrived back in my life, in my 20s. We had kind of come to understand each other just before he died.

      When my birth father died, I thought it would be worse when my step-Dad died but i would be able to manage. I didn’t realize I would lose him just a month later… or that my life would come to a screaming halt.

      My mother is now 86 and I don’t know what I will do when she goes… I know how bad it was when my Dad died.
