Re: Everyone must be....


It's a mixed bag for me. Somehow I ended up with a box of many small 5x7 photo albums, manilla envelopes full of old family photos, and some full of people my dad knew later in life. I pitched those last ones because none of us knew who the people were or, if we did, had no vested interest in them. Most of the old albums were completely of my older sister. There was one that had parent's wedding photos.

When my sister visited from Canada, I asked her if she'd go through them and take what pictures of HERSELF she wanted. Instead she cherry-picked the family photos, which pissed off the middle sister (who'd had ample opportunity to take some). But now what do I do with the hundreds of pics of older sister? I don't want them. Oh, one or two, sure, but the rest? If she doesn't want pics of herself, why would I want them? I really hate to just pitch them.

Before she got to the family photos I had scanned any good ones that had to do w my dad so I could make a powerpoint to play at his funeral service.
