Meme #2: Playing Tag with Memory Loss

The instructions are these:

* Go to your Sixth Picture Folder then pick your Sixth Picture.

* Pray that you remember the details.

* Tag 5 others.

Alright, well… I use iPhoto, which organizes all of my photos into “Events.”  So I’m going to go with the sixth “Event” instead of folder.  I’m sure you all won’t mind.  Luckily, it’s not a bad picture!

This is me and my younger brother, May 2003.  I went out west to see him graduate from college (University of Colorado-Boulder).  Despite it being May, it was awful out.  Freezing rain and snow for the outdoor graduation.  Oh well…

Man.  He looks so much younger, as do I.  (I’m not even going to get into how much thinner I look.)  We didn’t get along for many years, but he really grew up in the last several years, and is now Mr. Professional and doing great (and married and all of that).  And me, well… I’ve had a few things cause me to age a year or two since then. 🙂

I’m tagging people I know (or at least have met) in real life for this one:


What a Card

  1. Woo hoo! Thanks for playing along 🙂

    Forgot that you’re a mac person 😉

    And love the sparkles….

    Mike graduated from the same college as your brother…I’m thinking a few years before him though since I’m fairly certain that I’m older than you, and you’re obviously older than your brother, and Mike’s older than me. (didja follow all that? heh)

  2. Not a bad picture? It’s a GORGEOUS picture! 🙂

    Thanks for the tag…just did it and thankfully figured out when it was! 🙂

    Have a great weekend.
