The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#1229]

Today's Brit is my mother's stepfather, my Daddy Rex [far right], a native of Dunstable, England.  He came to the US as a college student before the First World War and fought in that war for the US Army.  In 1960, he married my grandmother, a month or two after I was born, and then became a delightful fixture in my life.

Rex is in many of the family pictures I have recently had converted to digital files.  I'm opening a shop on Etsy to display my favorites and sell digital copies.  My Etsy shop is going to be called Our Kodachrome Years--in the next few days I'll be posting a link here so you can check it out!
