Another pic of my mom & dad (Dad actually managed to keep his hands to himself this time):
In this one, I note that, while Dad is half a head taller than Mom, their hands hang down to about the same distance above the ground.
This, apparently, is where I got my own insanely-long monkey-arms from.
Thanks, Dad, for making me genetically incapable of finding a coat or shirt that fits both my arms AND torso.
Off-topic-ish: my mom was probably 19 in this picture. Less than half as old as when she finally had me at age 42. Which makes my head a little swimmy to think about.
