Smile A trip to India

I just found this photo of me on my 14 year old birth day, this lady hade 70 more years then I did, I only seen her once in my life, but on this one occasion she took me on a trip to India with her wonderful stories. She was working there in a mission, helping peoples with leprosy, unfortunately I donít remember everything she told me, but I do remember about the snakeís charmer and how she was fascinated by them, this was the very fist time she held a snake. She spent 40 years working in these countryís, she saw 100s of snakes in her life but never touched one, why did she with me, perhaps was it nostalgia! I guess it was, as I could see it in her eyes, at this moment she was back to India. Rgds
Ps. aim now 39

A very special thank you to Marcel Corbin who saw the above photo of me and much to my surprise sent me this photo of my mother and my 86 year old grandfather in background, this photo was taken on the same day as the other.

Important if you have any photos of my family even none reptiles related, pleas contact me, I lost every single photos when she died, needles to say this is hart worming.

Marcel is from Oklahoma, what a small world we live in
Kind regards

One more photo Marcel sent me, I O you big time! Will never thank you enough.
This was one of the last photo of her, she died later that summer.
They say a photo is worth 1000 words, not enough to express my gratitude!

How those are great photos and an even better story. It is indeed a small world! So your parents got you into reptiles? My mom started me going on garter snakes. Gotta love family photos! Nothing else gives you the same feeling. Glad you could get some of your family pics Steve! Truly a remarkable story! Tim.

Marcel Corbin is related to the man with the glasses, his wife took these photos, this man and the old lady (sorry I forgot there names) worked together as missionary in India.
When I ask Marcel why he moved to Oklahoma this is what he said; Moving to Oklahoma was kind of like an accident Steve, we came here to help after tornado disaster and never left.
I shod of know coming from such a devoted family, he also told me his Mom got hooked on snakes after they visited me, and one of the first animals he ever handled was a snake, I guess this disease we have is contagious after all.

In closing just to show this really is a small world, on several occasion I ordered motorcycle seats, as aim a little hard on them (I do motorcycle stunt riding shows)
Guess what? Corbin Motorcycle seat belong to his cousins.

What aim learning from these forum and internet, whatever we do or say goes a long way!
From now on I will give my very best, seems like it comes back hahaha
