Old Family Photos

I hooked up Allison's scanner to my laptop and starting scanning some old family photos. My grandfather, Lawrence Ames, was an avid photographer and I have two albums full of old pictures that I'm going to work my way through. Here are the first of many.

This is a picture of my mom, Vonda Ames, in 1946. She would have been around 13 years old.

Here's a photo of my Grandpa Ames from 1945:

I think this is going to be a fun little project.

Your mother was beautiful, Chris.

I've always wanted to do the same sort of project. Actually, I started once and then the computer pooped out on us and I lost the pictures I had scanned in...

Your mother was beautiful...she reminds me of the cousin, Maybe, from "Arrested Development". If you haven't seen it, that comment is going to make no sense, so sorry. But she's lovely.

(And if you haven't watched it, you should--it's damn funny!)
