Throwback Thursday (30)

Posted February 15, 2018 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

This week’s Throwback Thursday features my parents. Joe and Lily. Here’s one old ass picture that made me smile when I saw it. I don’t remember where this picture was taken or when it was taken but I sure do remember when my parents looked like this. My Dad looks like an old-school cowboy with that mustache and my beautiful Mom was in her prime. Such a lovely couple. I really do miss my Mom.

Until next week…enjoy!

Throwback Thursday (29)

Posted February 8, 2018 by Rowena in Family, Features | 1 Comment

This week’s throwback picture comes from when I was a wee lass back in the 80’s. It’s the last family picture that we took with our parents. Well, professional pictures with our parents. We’ve taken professional family pictures since then but they were presents for our parents so our parents aren’t in them.

I don’t remember taking this picture but that’s me…in the bottom right-hand corner. Big family, huh? We’ve always been known as the Wilson clan because we have so many people in our family that we’re definitely a clan. I’m loving how deceiving this picture is. My oldest brother Mel (guy at the top) is not that tall and my sister Blanche’s Farrah Fawcett hair is awesome. Then there’s my brother Seko right above me. This year will mark the fourth year since he died and I really miss him.

This was the family picture that hung in our home every day since I was a little kid. I’m very fond of this picture and on a day where I’m missing my Mom and my brother, I thought I should feature it here on my blog.

Until next week…enjoy!

Throwback Thursday (28)

Posted February 1, 2018 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

This week’s Throwback Thursday is coming a little later in the day because I forgot to write it up last week and then again yesterday. I’ve been missing this girl a bunch since she’s been gone. She’s serving a mission in Brazil and she’s doing great but I came across this picture as I was talking about my co-worker’s root canal the other day.

In my family, we show our love by embarrassing the shit out of each other. You know that you’re loved when we post things like this…

I remember this because Chach was in high school and she got her wisdom teeth out and her face swelled up to three times its normal size and holy cow, we laughed and laughed and laughed. My brother posted this and Chach took it all in stride because she’s that niece of mine that should be the protagonist in a YA novel because her life is full of things that would make people laugh. You’ll remember all about her from this post.

Here’s what she looks like with her normal face…

Chach comes back from her mission in a few months and I can’t wait. She’s such a sweet spirit and I just know that she’s going to have some amazing stories to share. I can’t believe that she’s been gone for over a year already.

Until next week…enjoy!
