Here are some pictures of my mom and dad and there parents and my dads grandparents...My mom had me when she was in her mid fourties...so yes these pictures are a little older than you would expect...



These are my parents...yes my mother is too beautiful, I know this, trust me I know this...keep in mind that in this picture she had had two children already and was 19...yah, my Dad is a tank...he is 6'3 and she is 5'0...my mother only likes things that are beautiful, she doesn't tolerate anything less than gorgeous...My mother was born in Alberta in the Canadian West on a Farm...she came to Toronto when she was 13...My dad was born in County Clare in the South of Ireland and he came to Toronto at 20 when he was draft dodging service in South Africa under the Brit. Army...he came to Chicago First but the Brit. Authorities were waiting for him at the border...so he fled to Toronto and to this date is not a citizen...oh Irish-Catholic Nationalism will push people to do some interesting things...



These are the folks that my mom got her height from...they were both like 5'1...This is a picture of her parents...her mother was born in Germany to Polish parents and her father was born in Austria to Ukranian and Mongolian parents...he fought in the first world war against the Canadians, Brits, French and Americans for the Austrian Army...they came to Canada to avoid WWII and they were farmers...family legends hold that my grandfather's bloodline comes from Russian Royalty on one side and that is why he was a general...but my grandma was of peasant stock and from what I hear she could cook like it was no one's business...they died decades before I was born...



These are my dads Parents...They were both Born in Ireland...had 15 children...owned a serise of Posh Dublin Hotels, lost them all in the 1930's...and according to my father never faught a day in their lives but rather sang love songs and held hands like young lovers...they were both tall...like my Da,



These are my father's farther parents...I don't know much about them just that they fled Ireland to Chicago and came back after three years and that my Great grandma was English her name was Martha Richards, oh and that my great grandpa looks just like my Da...I think i kinda look like my great grandma when I am emaciated...a bit...



and this is me of course...fate pushed a whole bunch of people across the ocean to get to this point...
