Brothers – 24/365 October 18 2013

When I went up to Dads a couple weeks ago I took a majority of the pictures out of the “office”.  Mom passed in 2010, Nanny in 2009 and they both had a lot of pictures, both albums and singles in boxes.  I spent 3 – 4 hours on Wednesday looking through 3 boxes of single pictures.  I think I have seen enough family faces for a year.  I have 7 siblings and I have large envelopes for all of them with pictures of themselves and their children and even their ex’s and ex in-laws.  I ended up with 2 boxes of pictures to be gone through at Christmas by all.  There are people I don’t know and people I don’t care if I see again.  There are a bunch of pictures of my Dad remodeling my Great Grandparents old farmhouse.  I guess I should take some of those.  I threw some stuff in the trash like my parents many years of Branson, Nashville and mostly Porterfield, WI C & W festivals.  Mom took them and most were blurry and I couldn’t make out anyone I knew.  They were very social people and had many parties and attended many parties.  I know a lot of those people and they looked like they were having a great time.  They were my parents friends and I don’t want the pics and pretty sure my sibs don’t either.  I feel bad about not wanting them and feel worse about the fact that they may be trashed.  I am hoping that Dad  is at the Christmas party and possibly wants them.  If not, goodbye.

I found a bunch of very cool pictures of my sibs.  The two I am sharing here are my 3 little brothers as kids and then as adults (are they ever really adults).




Do you have a bizillion pictures that your kids will have to deal with when you are gone.  Do you realize how many they will throw out and not care?

  1. These photos are cracking me up. Aren’t your brothers some characters? I totally love this. I have one brother and we were thick as thieves when we were young. He reminds me of these funny guys about the same age. I am sorry to hear about your mom. My dad passed this last year and it is hard to go through all the boxes of stuff. I noticed one thing though that all of my dad;s stuff smelled like him Old spice. Ha. I hope you do something fun with all the photos. This is such a great idea sharing them like this. I am now following you by email so I don’t miss the next installment! Lovely lovely post. Blessing to you Deb. Have a super weekend!
