Mom sends along some photos taken by a friend of the family, a long, long time ago, back when we lived in Gimli, Manitoba (named after the scrappiest member of the world famous dance troupe Lord of the Rings).
I had a stage in my life where I absolutely hated being photographed--well after these were taken, it appears.
I was pretty fashionable for a toddler; Dad was pretty fashionable for a dad.
