Going through our trunk full of photos to find some suitable for the 100th birthday post about my dad, I came across this one:
I have no memory of the occasion on which it was taken, but I am assured that it is an authentic picture of the person who grew into me. Time's a funny thing, though, isn't it? Sitting there like that, I was completely innocent of what was to follow. How could I have foreseen that further down the line this would happen?
I don't recall the occasion here, either, but I believe the picture was taken on my first day of school, the school in question being Baines Kindergarten, North End, Bulawayo.
