Gird your loins, for there cometh a time when a lengthy post followeth

Here is Mom, Dad and Flo sitting at the computer contriving a happy way to wish a happy birthday to our favorite oldest daughter/sister, etc. Mom keeps coming up with things like "A photo history. How about that? Or, or, or, 'in honor of my sister'." Smart cookie.
So here we go.
In Honor of My Sister: A Photo History

How 'bout that for a friendly couple? Well I wouldn't know, I'm not accustomed to looking at my parents and going "Awwww...they're so cute!" but I DO know that I like Dad's moustache and hair. Talk about cosmic, seriously cool. Been trying to get him to grow out a handlebar moustache for a long time.
AAAAAND she drops like a bomb. Kaboom.
Well. I have no words. You were cute. Didn't look a thing like me. Still, you're cute.
Dressed up in your Ecuadorian singing clothes at Grandpa's house in Canada.
In front of your house in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
WHERE HAVE ALL THE WHISKERS GONE? Clean-shaven Dad and Sunny with the beautiful smile.
Goodie. A horse picture.
Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, and Ti--the whole clan minus Dan (subtle rhyme)
Ar. We are Raquel and Chiyoko hailing from...Scotland? Merr Crismus.
Alright. Here we go. It's time to get into the Family photos. Dan the bruiser, and Florence the squinty-eyed. I'm wearing a see-through shirt. Sexy. I still remember that shirt.
Hi Grandpa John! He has his hand on little John!
There's that beautiful smile again.
Hahaha, Steve looks so smooth, he has his hands in his pocket and everything. Such a happy family.
This is one of my favorite pictures ever. You look so pretty, Mom looks so pretty, and Dan is like...smirking in the middle.
Enter, the man we call...TIMO!!!
I remember this time you came over to visit. We were feeding the koi over the bridge, do you remember? We played table tennis and everything.
Well, you did it! Great job!
I REMEMBER THIS! I specifically remember wrapping Brandon's presents. I probably did a terrible job, not that he noticed. It's Grandma Patty!
We miss you guys. Have a happy happy new year. Lots of love from Mom, Dad, Flo and Dan.

Haha! Looks like somebody made a snide comment, and my sis is protecting the innocent.

You guys were wonderful to do that. I am astounded. So good to see all those old pictures. I wish I had more.

I think someone made a snide comment and was convicted and decided to remove it of their own accord. Otherwise it would say "removed by administrator". HA! I like the sound of that. I should remove more comments just to show off my power.
YOU'RE ON THE PHONE!!!?!?!?! Mom just went "It's YOU!" on the phone. I scamper off to frolic around her.
