Hmm, I don't even remember when I last made a substantial post. Maybe on my anniversary, which was a week or so ago. Oh yeah, and I griped about the construction on Saturday. Let's see, in between there, I got really busy again at work - thus the lack of posts - and not much else happened, that I can recall. (Unless you want me to talk about American Idol. Which I don't think I want to do right now, but could probably be persuaded later, if there is interest.) Friday I left work early but I think I did boring stuff like get my glasses fixed and enter things into MS Money. So that gets us up to Saturday and the construction. I did stay home Saturday, but the flip side of that was that since I was home, I convinced Rob that we needed to go out to eat somewhere reasonably nice as a late anniversary dinner. So we went to Landry's. I had filet mignon and he had stuffed flounder and lobster bisque for an appetizer. It was a very nice dinner. I haven't been in there in a while, I forget how nice the atmosphere is. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Sunday I did get up early and make the circuit around the construction to get to my mom's house. I scanned a bunch of pictures, which are then going to somebody else or going in the trash. Some of them seemed to be from my dad's side of the family, so he may get them in the mail soon. Like this one:

Aunt Ida and Uncle Jack, 1967

That is my dad's Aunt Ida and Uncle Jack (in 1967, according to the back of the card) - he is definitely getting these because I only ever met them a couple of times and although I remember that I thought they were nice, that isn't enough to give me any great sentimental attachment to this picture. That one is not surviving the weeding process; it's interesting enough to scan but not interesting enough to keep the paper picture.

and now I am sleepy so I will spare you the account of the stomach ailment I have had since sunday night, at least until later.

What a great photo! It's so evocative of a time and a place. My first thought is that it's very American Gothic-esque. It's such a wonderful mix of images, with the formality of the clothes against the natural backdrop of the trees, the stiffness of your aunt's and uncle's poses with the warmth conveyed by the holiday greeting. It makes me imagine they would be very warm, inviting hosts, if one were lucky enough to be their guest.
