Dad & Mom at Waimea Canyon, Kauai
This is a scanned photo of my mom and dad with their arms around one another at Waimea Canyon in Kauai, Hawai'i. I love this photo partly because they both look happy, and partly because this is how they always appear in my mind. I know they have white hair and stooped shoulders now, but my brain fails to see that unless they're right in front of me, which doesn't happen very often since they live so far away.

Aw, thank you. I have only just realised it must have ben my grandmother who took the photo. She had a good eye.

They'd been married for at least eight years when this photo was taken. They chose well!

Great photo. And yeah, I hear you on the "parents getting old" thing. I was stunned when I realised my mum is now older than HER mum was when she died, and she was an Old Lady...

Oh my yes, that would be a shock. My parents aren't there yet, although I remember my dad being a little freaked out the year he turned 68 - his mum was 68 when she died.
