A Macro on Monday - Two Things.

These are the only two things that I have that were owned by my parents.  So, on a round figure birthday,  I think it's appropriate to look backwards at the same time as looking forward.



So, at the end of a (very) good day I decided to post this.

You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday.

Cheers SM.

A very Happy Birthday to you Stewart!!!
Ah, what it is to be thirty again . . .
All I have is a little liquer glass to remember my father by. The Russians sent him to Siberia when I was four, I briefly saw him once more before the Baltic states were free of the Russian yoke, when it took him longer to get to Riga from Siberia than it took us with a stop-over in Singapore. Papa's wedding ring and watch were never seen again after my brother's arm was amputated on the battle field . . .
Enjoy what is left of your birthday and your memories.

Don't spend too long looking back. However, that ring looks very similar to one my mother wears. Enjoy this special birthday and I wish you a long and happy blogging future.

Beautifully presented ... just enough to peak our interest and some left to the imagination. I am sorry that you have so few belongings from your parents, but I am certain, as you are looking back, you have many good memories.

So Happy Round Figured Birthday, Stewart. I won't guess at which round figure we are talking about (though Arija seems to know)I will only say that your years have served you well and that you are a interesting, talented, informed blogger and a wonderful family man and that is worthy of celebration.

Round-figured birthday? So you are going on a diet then? Sorry Stewart, couldn't resist. Enjoy your day. When my birthday comes, I run away from home.

Happy Birthday, Stewart! I hope your day was great!

FigMince said...

Yeah, happy birthday, Stewart – but at what age does a ‘Round-Figured Birthday’ become just another “Big Zero’?

Esther Joy said...

Soooo, this makes me wonder why you only have TWO things. ...My parents family home burned down almost 20 years ago, and that's why I don't have many of their things. ...Or maybe you are just not a "hoarder" and are picky about only keeping a few things!

At any rate, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Happy belated birthday, Stewart!
As it turned out, we were traveling across country here in the states on your birthday, and I'm still catching up at home & on blog reading.
I like the thought behind this post, and hope you had a wonderful day!
