and when i talk about my grandparents with their love of poodles and handguns, here's what my Christmases looked like as a kid. This photo was taken in crisp focus but the cigarette smoke was so thick that it only seems fogged. These were years of fog. (From left to right: Angel, Gigi, Jacques, Mimi, and only seeing the tuft of her head, Suzie. And that was CLASSIC Suzie, so humble... Gigi was, of course, the real looker.)
