Miranda Kopfschmertzen: Überbabe

This is my favorite picture of my wife, Miranda Kopfschmertzen. I came across it once while visiting her aunt’s house on my first trip to Oklahoma. I professed my love for the picture and her aunt said she would make me a copy and send it to me when I returned from my trip (this was 1999, and I was about to embark on The Grand Adventure).

However, my wife’s, Miranda Kopfschmertzen’s, aunt moved shortly after and the picture went missing. But lo, upon my last visit to Oklahoma last month, much to my surprise, the picture had been found and this time, it came home with me. So now I present it to you, Dear Reader. For if it again ever gets lost, there will be hundreds of memories of it, not just my one. And so, hopefully, it will live on for ever. Tell your children about it. Tell the world.

    It is enchanting to see Miranda’s charm and beauty at such an early age. That is one of the cutest pictures of a kid I’ve ever seen!

    Reminds me of Maggie on the Simpsons in her little “Star” outfit.
    We had one of those rocking chairs too. Were the 70’s all about rocking chairs?
    Little Diana in all her glory.

    I think the booties are my favorite. Or the hand-knitted throw. Or the courdoroy seat cushion. Or the rocking chair.
