Jamaica Irie

I was checking out The Sartorialist this morning and there is a great photograph of a man taken in New York which very much reminds me of our years spent in Jamaica. I got to reminiscing and came across a few photos.....

This photo is about 18 or 19 years old......geez, am I that old?!? The little girl on the right is actually my daughter, Saska. She's standing with her then bestist friends, Joseph and Joshua. Taken in Jamaica, just before the start of the school day, hence the still clean and fresh uniforms.
They were off to Hampton Preparatory School, waiting to be picked up by Wayne (my other half) in the back of his pickup truck...literally the back, the 'pickup' part of the truck as is customary passenger seating for rambunctious school children singing the following Shabba Ranks lyrics!

  1. Adorable picture!
    I would like to go to Jamaica sometime!

  2. The good old days, where did they go, remember life goes fast. Love you all Mom
