Seemed appropriate to post this today, even though I didn’t get a chance to honor the day completely by watching Henry V.
Was looking through my photo albums today and ran across this b&w of my uncle Emilio at a late-50s/early-60s wedding in Buenaventura, Mexico. He’s second from the right, my uncle Regino is on the left. Emilio was my favorite uncle and he died earlier this year. Maybe that’s why I love this picture right now.
Me: Te vas a poner la vacuna del flu?
Mom: No, le tengo miedo. Voy a esperar unas semanas para ver cuantos cuerpos caen.
Translation–my mom’s not sold on the safety of the swine flu vaccine and is watching the body count over the next few weeks before having the shot.
