a very short post in memorium...

Joe and Jo



10 years ago this week my dad died. this is a picture i snagged from my daughter's twitter icon.

my favorite things about that photo? the *ow-ie* on his knee. and the patriotic t-shirt he's wearing. and the serious expressions...and the quilt in the foreground, and the print of harold's on the wall, and the chair...

aw, fuck it. i like Everything about it.


i think that picture was taken on jo's birthday. about 15-16 years ago? at 6234 velasco. i think i still have that book, too.

They look so content together. What a nice memory and a great picture. Thanks for sharing.

i suppose that's exactly why josephine likes the picture enough to use it as an avatar.

the nice photo, the nice memories, the very real contentment they shared when they were together.

those things. and the fact that they share(d) such a capricious nature belied by the serious look on their faces in that picture...
