Rantings and Ravings and the Occasional Sane Comment of a priest blogging from the Global Center. I have a camera and I'm not afraid to use it! Now with Lovely Mona!!
Me too. We still love you Padre.
Technically, I pretty sure it was only 25 years ago, but the "skinny and had hair" references are obviously accurate.
Those pictures are 25 years old, but I was skinny and had hair 30 years ago. Well, and 25 years ago, but not 15 years ago.
And somehow, that's still how I think of you. Skinny and having hair. I guess it's difficult to completely let go of the image of a parent one has from when they're little.
Realizing that this will sound a bit hollow I offer it any way. My last two years of high school and into my post hs days I was in a band called Just Us. We played what would now be called heavy metal but at the time was called acid rock. We scared people (ala The Who) and loved it. Most of us moved on (it was 1968) but one of us continues to play in No. Cal. It was fun -- at least what I remember. In fact, we played a gig at Parker Dam (a bar there) the day before I graduated from HS. We awoke at 6:00 am and somehow I was seated in my robe awaiting my name to be called by 4:00 pm that afternoon. Strange what one can remember.
