I know, I know, it’s name dropping, but this is just too fun not to share–for me it brings back so many happy memories with that good family, and I knew if I put it here I could find it again. My parents weren’t big picture takers and I had no idea this existed.

My brother Bryan says our Mom sent him this photo some time ago and before everyone else had heard of the guy, of his best friend from across the street just before the best friend moved away to South Carolina.

Stephen Colbert was four.

Meantime, I finished the Malabrigo Silkpaca shawl and have gone back to the Epiphany project after a week’s break to figure out how to redesign the part I didn’t like. Ripped relentlessly, thinking of how Stephanie says she’s never regretted frogging something that’s not working.

And now that I’ve seen how it could look because of how it did look but that came up short, (see? It wasn’t wasted time) I finally knew what to do to make it come out perfect. It feels so much better now. Full speed ahead!

That picture is so cute! I love the bare feet and short pants.

Best friends are still best friends. That is an adorable picture.

Talk about Americana! That’s awesome, regardless of whose names go on the cherb’s faces.

Full speed ahead! Great to hear that it’s moving forward, and neat to see such a lovely family photo of your brother and his friend…precious memories, regardless of any names dropped, I am sure!

Go ahead! Name drop! Oh, you already did.
You remind me of Thomas Edison’s comment, regarding the invention of the electric light bulb, that he now knew this many things that didn’t work.

I love the contrast of outfit and attitude between Bryan and Stephan, standing just so and and neatly dressed in his plaid romper and the other standing expressively, talking with his whole body in his patched jeans :-}
(I’d be the one in the jeans :-} )

I saw this and thought “Ah, so cute.” Then saw NPR (sadly video not available online in UK) but… YAY! WELL DONE STEPHEN! And you knew him when…!

I’m so glad this one embiggens, it’s priceless. You should send it to Colbert–does he have pictures in MD? This one is so perfect, moment and personality. Thanks!
