Shadow Shot Sunday - Sequential

Seq.1 - Menu
Seq. 2 - ApĂ©ritif
Seq. 3 - Accompaniment
Shadow Shot Sunday returns again to the past, and of restaurant meal treats from Sage of Steubenville Grandpa. When he visited the family in Connecticut, we would all go to the old Marco Polo in East Hartford. As the photo gatherer in these situations, he did like to have a sequence of photos as a memory. Family siblings might remember that: 1) Holding up the menu; 2) Holding up his beer bottle (either Miller High Life or Miller Lite); 3) Holding up the wine bottle (always). Item 1 was usually taken by the waitstaff, the others by my father, conspicuously absent...always fun when he treated!

Restaurant photos like this are so wonderful. Everyone together, happy. I have a few that I wouldn't take any amount of money for.

Happy Easter, Ralph!
