The Beckster

I've been looking through a particular photo album a lot recently; I have a couple dozen books, but this one seems to get the most play recently. The pictures are from 1980 to 1982. It contains pictures from my early FantaCo days, the "royal wedding", and my old friend Deborah. It also has pictures of my niece Becky, the daughter of my sister Leslie:
These are rather tiny - though clicking on them should help - but the pose of her holding her doll is unmistakably familiar to me. I knew Lydia looked quite a bit like her at that age, but seeing these pictures was still a bit of a shock to the system.
Becky got married last year to Rico. She's been busy with her singing career; among other gigs, she is the vocalist with with house band for Anthology, the new jazz club in the Little Italy section of San Diego. Plus, she's going to school and dealing with real estate. She appeared on the cover of a San Diego-area magazine in the last month:

Her birthday is tomorrow. Happy birthday, eldest niece.
Love, Uncle Roger
Not so incidentally, Becky and Leslie appear to be safe from the raging California fires.

Wonderful! Thanks.

Thank you, Uncle Roger! Well, I don't know if you spoke with Mom, but the fires scared us there for a minute... She said she could see the glow from the flames coming over a hill by the house. Lucky for her, though, the winds blew the fire in the other direction. It has been such an ordeal out here and there are lots of people that still haven't been able to go back to their homes... I wonder if they even know if their house is still standing. Anyway, it was great talking to you the other night! I hope all is well with you and the family! I gotta run, but I hope we'll get a chance to talk again soon... Love you!
