A very important part of my childhood and my family to this day is music. Both my dad and my brother are professional musicians and my son is now totally in love with instruments. The top photo is Francesca (Kellogg) Thompson and I at her family piano. I remember it well. It was barely in tune and had that honkey-tonk sound all the time. And in their post Civil War house the sounds bounced off every wall. I’m guessing I’m around 2 1/2- 3 in this picture. And below is my son at 2 1/2 at Grandpa Jimmy’s grand piano. Everyone that says Josiah looks more like Joel can take a look at these pics. He sure is my boy too!
