Flashback Friday — Game of Telephone

Flashback to August 1997. Catherine was 16 months old, all squishy snuggles, full of wonder and curiosity, and already putting an active imagination to work.


We were visiting my parents — a special treat for Catherine, especially since it meant a chance to play with Grandpa.

Grandpa must have needed to “rest his eyes” for a bit because here she’d moved on to other amusements, apparently igniting a lifelong love of communications devices.

My mother has captioned it, “I’m making a long-distance call!”

The photo is tucked in a memory board next to her desk and so is my constant companion now that I’ve taken over the space for work while she’s at school.

Makes me smile every time I look at it.

  2. Always loved this photo! Notice how deep in “conversation” she is that she’s working her free hand to get her point across. And did you see photos of her and g-pa and her on counter behind her?
