This is my sister Michelle, with my Stepfather, in his conductor's tux, sometime in the bowels of the 70s -- 73 I believe. He is in this pic something like 34, much younger than my current age...he was conducting the Cedar Rapids Symphony at that point, and Michelle is wearing a diaper my mother embroidered the first 4 notes of Beethoven's 5th Symphony on the butt. The picture ran in the Cedar Rapids Gazette...|
Knowing my mom, she wasn't unaware of the irony of honoring Beethoven by soaking his most famous melody in baby crap and pee.
