OPD and Logic

I've been looking through the photo album I got from the Weebles. I'm excited about the photos because I want to use them to create an altered cookbook to trace the family history through the family recipes.

Came across this photo and didn't recognize any of the men. Showed it to Himself and said, "Doesn't this look like the Godfather's button men?" I started humming the theme to The Godfather.

Flipping through other pictures I found the man in the foreground not wearing a hat is my mother's father. (The only grandparent I knew growing up was my mother's mother, ) Called Dad to ask him if he remembered this picture. I don't recall hearing stories of my maternal grandfather having siblings. Dad didn't really remember the picture, but said he thought his father might be in the photograph. He described his father, tall, glasses and always well dressed. (He was a tailor.) The tall man in the back must be my father's father.

"You know, Dad, none of these photographs are labeled. There's nothing written on them to say who the people in these pictures are."

"Don't worry, about that, honey. We (Ma and Dad) know who the people are.
"That's great, Dad, but what happens when you're dead?"

Don't bother me with pesky details like that...

You're dad is the exact opposite of my FIL. He wants me to label pictures for him..of HIS family when he doesn't even remember the people or the places.

Okay, when I first saw this picture I had a very naughty thought...but since it's your family and you brought it up yourself..the first thought that came to my mind was...did they cut off the bottom where they were holding the machine guns?

Are you sure you want this picture labeled? One hears all kinds of stories about family trees...
