Last weekend, my parents and I went to visit my dad’s aunt Goldie in Columbia, MO. At 84 she is still sharp as a whip and had us all laughing so hard we could barely catch our breath at one point. She is my dad’s father’s (my grandpa’s) youngest sister… and although I never met my Grandpa Barnes, it was really amazing to get a chance to talk with his sister Goldie and get a glimpse into the hidden lives that carry my genetic history. Here’s a quick family portrait I snapped before we left… and of course, a picture of her adorable Beagle.
