A few years ago I was looking at some photos with my cousins. The photos were of a party with many relatives in attendance including my parents, my cousin's parents, other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. But Len and I were not in any of the photos. We were mystified. Whose party was it? Where were we? Why weren’t we there? The conversation veered wildly as we all put forth our theories.
Today, I had a similar conversation with my Mom about what sounded like the same photos. After some discussion, we deduced that her photos are of my Uncle's surprise 80th (and my Dad's 74th) birthday party. If we remembered right, the party was held somewhere around Framingham, MA on Jan. 8, 2005 and Len and I were out-of-town at a conference.
After ruminating about this for a bit I don’t think my Mom’s photos are the same as my cousin’s photos. I’ll know for sure when my Mom shares her Timebox story and I see my cousins and those photos again this summer.
When we figure it out we’ll definitely put it in Timebox.
