We had the memorial for my cousin Tempy today. It was the usual family sort of thing. Old relationships renewed. Old feuds either ended or reafirmed. Ya know,..family. Actually I was surprized at how happy I was to see some of my estranged former loved ones. I guess it's just that strange effect that weddings, and funerals has on all of us.
Anyway there's my dear Tempy up there. I'll post more photos later. I'm just so exhausted now. The photo above is from her days as a dancer at the Cotton Club. 'Least I think so. She got around in her day. Infact I'd forgotten just how famous that side of the family was, and in some cases still are.
I'll tell that story some time later on.
