the LIST

Do I know you? One man's attempt at a lifelong head count. 

NOTE: If you think I might have a photo of you—most likely at least one great photo of you—don't be afraid to ask me to post it ( along with a brief entry about how I know you. And if I've met or known you but don't have any photo evidence, feel free to send along YOUR favorite photo of you. (I'm fascinated by what that slideshow might look like.)

Yucaipa, CA. Sisterhood. 2004

That's Bubbles on the left. Katherine on the right. They became sisters from another mister when they were about 4. Their parents fell in love while working at a hospital. Katherine's dad was a doctor. Bubbles' mom, my sister, was a nurse. Julie had 2 boys (Trey & Parker) and a girl. (Brooklyn, aka Bubbles.) Dr. Brian had a little girl (Katherine) and a little boy (Brian, aka Rusty). They've been married for a solid decade now. And I can always remember how old Katherine & Bubbles are because Katherine turned 11 on 1.11.11. I'm a sucker for those kinda things. So why did I miss her 14th birthday this year? Because I'm terrible with birthdays and cards and gifts. I suck. So maybe this project will allow me to be an open-ended birthday card. Happy birthday, girl! I definitely won't forget you when you turn 15 in 2015.
