Aging With Time

I was on StumbleUpon last night and came across this very curious website of the Golberg family who has been photographing themselves annually since 1976. This is a wonderful way to record family history, but definitely not recommended for those who don't want to see themselves age.

A few years back, I bumped into my cousin whom I haven't seen since we were teenagers. He came by to say 'hi' to me, but I embarrassingly asked him "who are you?". I'm sure he was offended or thought I grew up to be some dimwitted fool. I guess I should be flattered that he recognized me.

First of all, I didn't expect to see him of all people so I was caught off guard. If I would have given myself a few moments to think logically, I would have recognized him. Okay, enough of defending myself. It's already too late. :O

What a cool idea.

I've had a similar problem with a cousin. Only they didn't come and say hi, and I heard through the family grapevine that I ignored them. Now why they couldn't come over and say hi I don't know, and so I argued that they ignored me, since I never saw them, and they saw me.

Two of the guys in the 2007 row look like Jerry Seinfeld.

Hi Dee, thanks for revisiting. Those darn cousins. Sometimes I use the excuse, I "didn't have my glasses on". Try it. :P

Hi Rodney, At least they don't look like Kramer. Thanks for commenting.
