It's birthday week in my family. My brother's is today, Dad's on Saturday and my sister's is on Tuesday.
It is a Caribbean tradition not to cut a male child's hair until he is one year-old or starts speaking. One of my friends said it's an old school Jewish tradition as well. As a result my younger brother had the biggest 'fro ever as a baby.
As I was packing up I asked my former co-worker to scan these photos. Today my brother is a married man with two young boys.
Aught! Happy Birthday to one of my best friends.
My poor Pink Panther stuffed animal is on the floor. The second photo was taken at the Turtle Back Zoo in South Orange, New Jersey.
