How I Met Your Grandmother

My paternal grandparents attended the largest high school in the Bay Area.  Each year the school hosted “Hello Day” as an effort for the students to better know each other.  The rules were that you had to shake hands and introduce yourself to anyone with whom you came into contact that you didn’t already know.

Grandma and Grandpa had friends who were dating.  Those friends decided Art and Jeanette would be perfect for each other, so they arranged a meeting.  Grandpa’s friend arranged to meet him by the 5th floor trash can during lunch, and Grandma’s friend made the same plans. The friends never showed, and the rest is history.

Every year, on the anniversary of “Hello Day” my grandpa sent my grandma roses with a card that read “Hello again.”  I’m sure those were the first words out of his mouth when they reunited in heaven.

When you’re a jet…

Over the last year we’ve been introducing our kids to old movies.  They’ve loved Arsenic and Old Lace, Fiddler on the Roof, Bringing Up Baby and many others.  West Side Story was a harder sell though.  The older kids found it depressing, and my seven year old was a little confused.  Before the opening scene was over he asked, “So are these gangs dancers?”

For some reason he wasn’t impressed.

A picture is worth…

Last weekend a friend told me she loves my weekly “throw back” posts on Instagram.  She said she wouldn’t even know where to look for her old photos, and wondered how I had access to so many of my own.  I confessed that I’ve been obsessed with photography pretty much my entire life, so it’s really not surprising that I have loads of old, pre-digital photos at my disposal.  Because, you guys, a picture really is worth a thousand words (or more).

One of these kids is doing her own thing

I tan easily.  Really easily, and really well.   When I was a little girl I would run around outside all summer long, turning a lovely bronze color.  People would ask which Native American tribe I came from.  In college, when I spent lots of time teaching swimming and lifeguarding at outdoor pools, I was once mistaken for a Latina and another time for an Iranian (by an Iranian woman!).

When I married, I married into a family dominated by gingers and freckles.  One year (after teaching swimming lessons all summer) my mother-in-law had family photos taken.  I was the only in-law at the time, so the photo of the “kids” was me, my husband, and his siblings.  To this day, when I look at the photo, the song “One Of These Things” (is not like the others) from Sesame Street comes to mind.  Sometimes being different isn’t so hard.

Do I have an accent?

Last month I traveled to Las Vegas for a photography workshop.  It was a great time, and the weather was amazing.  So comfortably warm and gorgeous in the winter!  I hadn’t been out that way for a while, so hearing the twang in the locals’ speech was a treat.  It made me miss my west coast home!

Last month I also had someone tell me that I had, “the cutest little accent”.  That’s an unanticipated perk to living on the east coast!  I get to sound cute.

 

Photos from my Vegas trip.
