Happy Birthday, Sam – The Prodigal Pictorial


Note: My son’s birthday seems an auspicious time to re-post this Prodigal Pictorial, which I originally published Oct 28, 2007 at 1HeckOfAGuy.com, a predecessor of AllanShowalter.com

Sam, aka Prodigal, put together a photobiography1 to fulfill a requirement of his vocational rehab program. Because I was pulling photos for this presentation during a good portion of the time I had planned to spend merrily blogging away and because the project and my son were on my mind, some of the pictures have transmogrified into today’s post.

My personal favorite of the shots occupies the top right corner. The caption (not shown on the collage) is “My father has always stood behind me and supported me”

Prodigal and I crack ourselves – and each other – up

  1. I suppose this compilation would be more correctly or at least more precisely termed a photoautobiography, which also has the advantage of being more fun to say, but that construction looks suspect. []
