Pop-Up Museum: Objects in My Personal Library
I have a bunch of old family photos I framed that make me smile every time I look at them.
That’s my great grandmother in both the “Los Angeles County Jail” and dressed as Popeye on snowshoes with a revolver. The puppies were on my grandfather’s Harley Davidson (my father had an Indian–another photo not seen in this grouping). My grandfather’s older brother took the photo of the ship’s most important crew members (cats) taking a break on the capstan of the ship bringing him to WWI Europe. My great auntie Ella’s oldest grandson (complete with wet pants) is seated between two of her Siamese cats (both of which have crossed-eyes). They remind me of all the “hoots” I came from.
