Echoes in Time

Yesterday my older sister posted an old photo on her Facebook page showing me and our younger brother, Benjamin.

Once I got over the initial shock of seeing what a fashion disaster I was back then, I started trying to figure out how old I was... and by extension, how old Benjamin had been.

Turns out that we were the same age as Gilad and Yonah are right now; 18 and 10, respectively.

Never one to pass on an opportunity to poke fun at myself, I asked the boys to pose for a similarly posed photo... with Gilad wearing a pair of my Navy shorts from back when I was 18 or 19.

Here you go:

Did you make those shorts out of a pair of dungaree pants?

Karl... Good eye. Yes, those were once bell bottom dungarees. They even have my name embroidered on a patch over the back pocket... anyone who visited the Philippines on a west pace had to get a bunch made up to show how 'salty' they were.. :-)
