Friendship: PRICELESS


21:11 CDT
Manhattan, KS


Banamum with a friend and classmate from nursing school in Taiwan, whom she hasn't seen in person in 41 years.
Is there anything like friendship?

(Sorry for the fuzziness of the photo; I took better ones, shown below, but this one captures their expression all evening the best, IMHO.)


They would not... hold...


... still! So now you know where I get it from. Banamum is actually a Bene Gesserit. It's the Weirding Way!

Wow! 41 years?! I hope my friends and I have the same grins that far down the road (let's see, for some, we've got... another 36? For others, about 30? ;))

They look really happy :)

For context
... tonight featured the ladies introducing the "new men" in their lives. (My parents will celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary in December, 2006.)

"Oh, and this is the son you mentioned. guai xiaohai (cute kid)"

They look really happy :)
Ohhhh, man, yes. Look at the new pics I just added!

Great picture. I think the longest friendship I have has lasted maybe 10-11 years.

I hope you don't mind, but I was just browsing through your photos online (I really dig looking at photographs, and not in a creepy "One Hour Photo" kinda way, either). There are some really expressive pictures.

p.s. It appears that you have good genetics. =)

Family, 1955
Great picture. I think the longest friendship I have has lasted maybe 10-11 years.
Do you mean you've lost track with people whom you've known longer than that, or that they aren't your friends any more?

I have friends from the early 1980s whom I've just lost touch with.
There are a few friends of my parents from then that I still keep in touch with.

I hope you don't mind, but I was just browsing through your photos online (I really dig looking at photographs, and not in a creepy "One Hour Photo" kinda way, either). There are some really expressive pictures.

I don't mind; those pics are there because I put them online to link and repost at will. Just don't hotlink them and cite your source on any you link to, please.

Heh, that 1955 pic is from the early days of my mom's family in Taiwan. Standing, back row: my second aunt (mother of three sons), my eldest aunt (one son, one daughter; two step-grandkids and one granddaughter), my older uncle (adopted a biological nephew), my mom (one son), my fourth aunt Cathy (one daughter, one son)
Front row: my grandmother, my fifth aunt, and my grandfather

My mom is looking like a typical ticked-off teenager - it's nice to know, some things haven't changed.

The youngest, my mom's kid brother, wasn't born yet.

p.s. It appears that you have good genetics. =)
Thanks. :-)

I just love those pics. Don't know why, but I just love 'em. You captured them perfectly. :)

Didn't know your mom went to nursing school!

LOL, if you saw how excitedly they were talking and teunceing, "captured" probably isn't the word you'd use. :-D

Yep! She was a registered nurse for a while (and delivered three babie, and even worked for two years as an instructor at the school before she came the USA in 1968 to study medical technology. In December, 1971 she got a Bachelor's degree in med tech and got married in the same month.

Oh, and she's a hematologist, and so was offering running commentary during the whole last episode of Lost. ;-)

:) I can only imagine. Reminds me of a lifelong friend of my Mom's that she always kept in touch with. Hehe would be fun to see my parents 'teunce' once in awhile. (That or disturbing.)

In December, 1971 she got a Bachelor's degree in med tech and got married in the same month.

Why do graduating and getting married seem to go hand in hand for lots of women? "Gee I just spent the last 23859034 years paying for classes and working my butt off and going crazy getting this degree, and hey, now I'm getting married so I most likely won't even be able to use said degree! Great!" ;) Maybe that'll happen for me!

Hematology? Remind me what that is. Cause I still haven't seen Lost. Stupid school.

Punching out and checking in

:nod: I gotta photograph that little plaster figurine in the first pic.
The base reads "Fashion is fickle. Friendship never goes out of style."

Well acksherly, my mom went to work after getting married. Had to help put the hubby through grad school (he got his Ph.D. in 1974, starting in 1971).

I was delivered a couple of years later (October, 1973) at her workplace (Crawford Long Memorial Hospital), which I guess is... convenient.

"Hey, girls, I'm signing out... and checking in..."

How wonderful!

(Your personal/family pictures have been really enjoyable. It helps us to remember that maybe we do not all LIVE in the computer, yes?)
