Past, Present


These hand prints were made by my father and his brothers back in sixties. My great grandmother lived in the house behind their family and since the boys frequently traversed the back yard at night my grandfather decided to put in a light post. Into the cement he poured around the base he had his children press their palms. Forty years later his great grandson's palm just fits into the littlest print.

That is so cool! What a great thing to be able to do -- sometimes it's hard to remember that we were all that little once, but this is a great reminder!

The BA and I did that in our new patio in the house in England. Someone will see it for years to come and wonder who the hell we were....
