Not so senior, Sugapea

I'm the same age as the younger boy, and we only just turned 55, so still a decade away from senior citizenry.

Grandma's house?

Although the dining room in the background could be mistaken for the location of the boys' two birthday parties, seen back in June, I have a feeling they're not at home. The venetian blinds and wooden trim are the same, but the wallpaper and chairs are different. Perhaps they're at the grandparents'? I'm also mystified by some kind of double-exposure phenomenon with two of the chairs. There's a ghostly blur with the chair at the head of the table as well as with the chair set against the china cabinet. In between the two: a brilliant phone!

Note the Telephone

Those were the days when the Telephone rang and you sat down to speak to the caller. Everything else stood at a standstill -- something that seems missing these days.

Cute little boys. Now they're Senior Citizens! Time goes fast -- stop once in a while, enjoy this amazingly wonderful ride.
