You oughta be in pictures…cuz someday you might need one

As we continue to work our way through the documentation needed for my next step n the settlement process, Bob and I have come acropper of a societal expectation we hadn’t previously considered.  We are asked to submit photographs of our engagement party, to say nothing of some of our wedding.  We practiced saying the phrase “engagement party” while looking at each other dumbly.  We each have a dim memory of there being a couple snapshots of us together on the day we got married, but “wedding photo” would be gilding the lily a bit in terms of artistic endeavour.  And who knows where that snapshot might have crawled across the years and miles?

Of course, the point is to be able to demonstrate that we are indeed connected in a way predating my immediate presentation as an immigrant.  So bob went to work today and sorted through quantities of lord knows what all.  And came up with some seasonally appropriate images:  Fred as a tie-dyed babe in arms with hippie haired papa and svelte mama.  Ah, how we’ve all aged!

the moral of the story is one so many have dinned at me across the years:  you really should be in pictures because you don’t know when you might need to prove that you were there.

    Please scan the photo and post? I’d love to see it. I probably have photos of your wedding day. Would you like if I found any?
