My dad was showing me some old albums dating from 1960 - 1985, albums I'd never seen before. They included pictures of my dad as a kid (he looked just like me), pictures of my cousins as infants, and lots of pictures of my grandpa, who died 15 months before I was born. The last picture in the photo album was of me as a newborn.

Also inserted in the album was a eulogy of my great-grandpa, written by my grandpa. I learned a lot about my family's work history - both my grandpa, his brother and dad were furriers - they ran a company called Faden Furs. Another interesting fact that my dad told me: my father's father's father's second wive's daughter's ex-husband is Neil Diamond. That makes me his ex-step-grandson in law. I'm DAMN famous now.
