Time marches on

I can’t remember whether I have shown these photographs to you before, but if I have, I’m about to show them to you again.

Wow what marvellous pictures! Time, there it is across the screen indeed. The family resemblances are very strong, they're a fine looking bunch all round. I already know how proud you are, and heartily applaud that motion. I love seeing my blogger friends photographs. *smiles*.

What absolutely lovely photos.

Thank you both, Michelle and Carol, for your kind words from opposite sides of the world.

All Consuming and Carol are both right. Truly lovely photos, and the family resemblance (and the happiness) are very evident.

Grand photographs and aren't the shirts doing well. I wish I could get mine to last ten years.

Such great photos ... smiles across time ... in my family there would be at least one set of bunny-ear fingers!

You are a lucky man to have such a family. I notice that your two pictured grandsons have writing on their tops - "La Grange" and "River Ridge". Perhaps you should follow their fashion sense and get yourself your own top with writing emblazoned across it. May I suggest "Cherokee" after your county or "Rolling Rock" after a well-known American beer or "Organist" to announce your musical talent. You would look even more cool.

More thanks to everyone for the lovely comments. If you can stand it and indulge me just a bit more, I want to have a post soon showing the rest of my grandchildren.

Adrian, I didn't understand your comment about the shirts at first until I realized I had made a boo-boo in the caption. The photo of all five of us should have said July 2010, not July 2000 -- a thousand pardons! (I made the correction.) The photo in the post and the photo in the sidebar were taken on the same day, actually, Mrs. RWP's birthday that year. Now your comment ("Aren't the shirts doing well") makes me giggle.
