Subject: [photos] A bit more of the past emerges
Security: Public
Tags:child, family, personal, photos
the_child recently uncovered a box of photos and negatives stretching back to 1965 or 1966. Hence a few of my recent scans. Tonight she and I had dinner with lillypond, a/k/a my sister, to hand over the goodies, as lillypond is a much more serious photographer than I, has a better scanner, and makes a fairly significant hobby out of digitizing archival family material.

So here's an old photo of two of my high school friends, hanging in a Choate dorm room back in fourth form. Pretty sure it's not my room, but given who's in the photo, we were probably playing blue box D&D. I give you A— F— and jtdiii

Besides, look what you and I both got out of all those D&D games.

They were a lot of fun. :)

Which is odd that we were not smiling...

He lives in Seattle now. I occasionally hear from him. Other than that, you are literally the only high school friend I know anything about, any more.
