Also, as a not so aside, it is Father's Day in several countries today. I'm celebrating my dad here on the blog, in addition to my late grandfathers and their roles as both fathers and grandparents.

 This is my paternal grandfather in 1946 or 1947 with my dad on the left and my uncle on the right. He passed away before I really had the chance to get to know him (I was about 9 or 10), but as he also had lupus, I feel a certain connection with him. I have been able to watch some of our visits via video after my parents digitized them this year, which has been very special.

This is my maternal grandfather, on the far left, with my uncle, mother and grandmother in 1944. He also passed when I was quite young--I was 12 at the time. I never really got to know him either, but I am celebrating him today as well!
 Here is a more recent photo of my dad with me when I graduated from NYU. We look a lot alike here. :)

And just for funzies, here is one of my great-great-great (xI'm not sure) grandfather (and grandmother) hanging out being Amish. For those of you who have read Children of the Most High, these are the children some of the first Amish settlers in Indiana in 1875. They are featured on PBS' website as well, which I just discovered. Apparently, the Amish USED to be okay with photography until it became more popular, then they started to shy away from it.
