CC agreed to let me publish this photo. Yes, that’s her on the left in what she refers to as her “Charles II” period. If that reference doesn’t ring a bell for you, find an illustrated guide to English history and get back to me. That’s me on the right, extinguishing a modest number of candles on a cake from long ago in the dining room of my brother Dan and his wife Nancy.

I call this photograph magic because it has changed tremendously over the years. When I first saw it, it looked like nothing more than a mildly amusing remembrance of a happy surprise party. With every passing year, though, it has become a more and more striking and startling sight. It has transformed itself into an image of people I scarcely recognize. I hope this puts a smile on your face!
