My sister (and occasional co-blogger) Eileen’s birthday is Saturday, so in advance of that auspicious occasion, she gets today’s Wayback Wednesday post. Mom sent this picture – along with quite a few others – when she was passing along the pictures from Dad’s trip to the Super Bowl. It was a new one to me, though it certainly isn’t the only photo I’ve seen of Eileen and Grandpa looking adorable. We’ve always joked that Eileen was his “retirement project” and she was certainly the apple of his eye.
In this photo, they appear to be doing what we would have called “Eskimo kisses” at the time – rubbing their noses together – but that just sounds like something one doesn’t say in this day and age. What are we calling this now?
Anyway, happy birthday in advance, little sister. Hope it’s a happy one!
(Oh, and speaking of birthdays, today is my friend Rudi’s… If you feel so inclined, swing on over to his piece of the Internet and wish him a happy one!)
