A most treasured possession [Oct. 8th, 2005|08:57 pm]
한국 사람이 아니다

This is a thing I would save in a fire. I got it from my dad; I can't remember how I found it or how he had it, but evidently he got it from his father (my grandfather, who I don't think I ever met). It's obviously from the end of WWII.

On the back it says, Compliments of your loving daughter, Glenda. She's my aunt, my dad's older sister. I wonder about what's behind that ballpoint-pen sentence.

It's a photograph, printed on very thin photo paper, but glossy. It's so old that the black areas are actually silver.

Hi!

Do you mind me asking what does your ID mean? I sense some Finnish-Estonian-meaning or something of that kind.

Re: Hi!

Heh. It's Finnish, and it means, literally, "the people of the house," or "household."
It's an old joke, but it's been my internet name since 1994...

And no...I'm not at all Finnish. I am half Russian, though...
