Way Back Wednesday... me :)




---
As an only child (and grandchild on my father's side) I am never at a loss for pictures of me growing up. It also helped that both my Mother and Aunt were camera happy people. By the time these were taken, my parents were already divorced and my father was living in Boston & New York with his lover Bob (a teacher in the Boston School system)... my Dad passed away when I was 15, but Bob still lives in Winthrop (MA). Haven't seen him in ages, but I think about him often. An amazing guy, here are a couple pics of my Father & Bob...

I think about what it would be like if my father was still alive. We had much in common, and were very close, despite the distance (2-3 hours) and visitation limits (Saturday 10-6). I wonder if he had any inclination... I suppose he might have, I'll have to ask Bob if I ever see him again. I don't know what has prevented me from contacting him, all these years I have never tried. I know he drives the 2 hours a couple times a year to place flowers on Dad's grave, I even ran into him there once when I was about 19 on my father's birthday. He is always skittish around me, won't look me in the eyes, stutters a bit and makes off quickly. I wonder why... I mean what has he to be shy about?? Is there something I don't know? hm....

Well that's it for today, I have to make a special trip over to the Big E today for my Aunt. After work I am heading up to my step-sister's for her daughter's birthday. I won't be home till late so my video post will be a short one. Have a Happy Hump Day everyone :)

I know why your Mom and your Aunt took so many pictures of you. It's because you're such a cutie. :-)
Have fun at The Big E, and thanks for sharing these pictures and insights.

Course, as an adult, you're still pretty hot, and I still wanna pinch your cheeks...albeit a different SET of cheeks. :)

HUGS and stuff...

Well, I feel weird saying you were an adorable little boy...but you were.

Glad to see you grew into an incredibly hot and sexy man.

Happy Hump Day!

You were/are a cutie! LMAO at Polt!
You definitely should clear the air with Bob. Have a good time and be careful :)

I really don't understand why you don't try to contact Bob!!! It would be good for you and for him, I think! Both of you loved your father, what does bar you from writing a short letter to Bob, including the link to your blog :-)???

This is GREAT!!!! Love the pictures and love that your dad was gay too! That is awsome!!!

You should try to contact Bob..

Your father looks a little like Al Pacino in one photograph and Bob looks a little like Robert Wagner :]

I would ask as much as you can while you can. Yesterday was the anniversary of my father's death and I just cannot get enough informaton about him or my mother. As people close to them pass away there are fewer and fewer people who can share their memories with me.

Yesterday I met a "Bob" from another family. He was talking about the daughters of his own partner, missing them, wanting to contact them, but feeling like he didn't want to intrude or force things....that are adults, he tells himself, THEY would have contacted him if they were interested in maintaining a relationship. Who's to say the daughters are not contacting him because they are assuming the same thing about him?

you were a cutie when you were young......and still are!!

Maybe you remind him of your dad, just a little bit.That might be enough to rattle him, just a little bit.
And you were cute from the beginning.
