ugly glasses

i went to santa rosa to visit my family right before christmas. when I arrived, my mom pulled this picture out and said, "Look what I found!" My reaction was immediate and swift, "Mom, how could you have let me wear glasses so ugly?!" Check out those gigantic plastic circles on my face (and my fab 80s mullet).

Her reply, "It was the 80s, those were the only glasses available. Besides you should see what I had to wear when I was a teenager." In this picture my mom is about 13 and had just received a very special home perm from my grandmother. I love this picture. Those glasses, that dress, the hair, the nose (my brother, once he was able to breathe again after laughing so hard, asked, "did somebody punch you in the nose right before this picture was taken?").

some tancretos visit tucson

it's been a while since I updated this poor little blog. had a visit from my folks and aunt Peg and uncle Jim last month. I took Mom and Peg to Tohono Chul Park, where Peggy had a run-in with a jumping cholla cactus, while Dad and Jim went to watch Cal lose to the wildcats because Jim didn't wear his lucky clothes, or something like that. We all went to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum where we saw a raptor free-flight demonstration - owls and hawks and ravens and such flying around and buzzing the crowd. it was cool, but i don't have any pics - can you send me those, Dad? we ended up at Caruso's for a real eye-talian dinner that night, drank some wine and heckled some of the cute waiters and bussers (well, that was mostly Peggy).
