Stand By Me
Yesterday I added some "vintage" photos to my Facebook page...I wanted to share this photo, among others with family and friends. This photo in particular I sent to the son of my Father's best friend. My Dad is the tall guy in the middle. His friend is to the left of him. I think they had been friends since they were about 5 years old. They were so close my Sister and I called him "Uncle." Unfortunately Uncle P passed away about 9 years ago. My Dad misses him a lot.
I love this photo. Three scruffy kids, taking a break to pose. Not sure who took the picture, maybe my Grandmother. It captures a moment in time that I wasn't able to see.
It definitely reminds me of the movie "Stand By Me."
Even the glasses are the same!
Not sure which "character" my Dad would have been. I'm guessing the lead role, narrated by Richard Dreyfuss as an older man.
Either way, the photo is a great snapshot and I love looking back in time, especially a time I missed when my parents were young!
