I was looking for this picture tonight on my blog because I thought for sure I had posted it before, but I couldn't find it. That's my brother and me. I was looking for the picture because I was getting his card ready to send for his birthday and I wanted to send him a copy of this picture.
I absolutely love everything about that picture. First of all, a few years ago there was a blog challenge to write your epitaph in 7 words or less and I chose: She knew how to have fun. Also I have always loved the lines:
"Look at me, look at me, look at me now. It is fun to have fun but you have to know how." - The Cat in the Hat.
On top of that, my brother and I have been guilty of many things and we both have been tossed in jail for stuff. I posted about mine back in 2005, but no one was reading my blog then. My poor brother was tossed in jail in Plano, Texas one night in 1983. He was lost and realized he shouldn't even be driving and pulled into a service station to sleep it off late one Saturday night and after the cops woke him up, pulled him out, and beat him up, they charged him with "drunk and disorderly" when the most he should have gotten was trespassing. Oh well. Cops can be assholes sometimes.
Anyway, it has always been one of my favorite pictures. I have it in a frame. I think he's going to get a kick out of it. I imagine he hasn't seen it in ages. And who knew a novelty tourist picture could be so accurate? I've certainly been guilty of having too much fun my entire life.
