JACOB:  "AHHH, I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED
THIS PHOTO..."

VINCENT:   "I SEE WHY,
YOU LOOK QUITE REGAL IN IT.
I, ON THE OTHER HAND..."

JACOB:  "YES, YOU DO LOOK
QUITE CONTRARY,
IF I RECALL,
YOU WERE HAVING A BAD HAIR DAY,
AND OPTED TO WEAR YOUR HOODY
FOR THE SITTING."

VINCENT:  "YOU DID KIND OF SPRING THE WHOLE
PORTRAIT SESSION ON ME THAT DAY...
IF ONLY I WOULD HAVE HAD TIME
TO PREPARE MYSELF...
WELL, THAT'S ALL IN THE PAST,
LET'S SEE WHAT PIC IS NEXT..."

VINCENT:  "HERE WE ARE, PLAYING GAME #1,560.
I REMEMBER YOU WOULD CALL
OUR CHESS SESSIONS,
"THE BATTLE OF THE BRAINS" AHHH, FATHER...
YOU FLATTER ME SO."

JACOB:  "NO FLATTERY WAS INTENDED VINCENT...
YOU ARE QUITE THE FORMIDABLE OPPONENT!
HMMM, GAME #1,560 YOU SAY?
I BELIEVE I WON THAT BATTLE DID I NOT?"

VINCENT:  "YOUR MEMORY SERVES YOU
WELL...YOU DID."

VINCENT:  "THE CAVE IN,
I WILL NEVER FORGET THIS HORRIFIC TIME...
WHEN WE WERE TRAPPED IN THE CAVE.
HOWEVER, THANKS TO CATHERINE...
AND I SUPPOSE I SHOULD SAY
THANKS TO ELLIOT TOO,
WE MANAGED TO SURVIVE."

JACOB:  "YES, WE MUST NOT IGNORE THE FACT,
IT WAS BECAUSE OF ELLIOT'S GENEROSITY,
THAT WE WERE FREED FROM OUR DUSTY GRAVE...
I DARE SAY, TIS GOOD FOR US
ELLIOT STILL HAS THE HOTS FOR CATHERINE."

VINCENT: "ELLIOT ONLY HAS PLATONIC FEELINGS
FOR HER NOW...I KNOW BECAUSE CATHERINE TOLD
ME SO."

JACOB:  "IF YOU BELIEVE THAT, WELL I HAVE SOME
LAND TO SELL YOU IN CHINA TOWN!"

VINCENT:  JUST TURN THE PAGE FATHER!"

JACOB: "HMM, WHERE AM I IN THIS PHOTO?"


VINCENT: "YOU ARE NOT ACTUALLY IN THIS ONE,
I INCLUDED IT,
BECAUSE I THOUGHT I LOOKED EXCEPTIONALLY
PHOTOGENIC
IN THIS PENSIVE POSE."

JACOB: "YOU WILL GET NO ARGUMENT FROM ME!"

VINCENT: "NOW, LET'S SEE, WHAT HAVE WE HERE..."

VINCENT: "OH, THIS IS THE TIME
YOU SNUCK UP ON ME
IN THE WHISPERING GALLERY,
AS I RECALL, I WAS CONTEMPLATING MY LIFE...
AND YOU SCARED ME SO,
I NEARLY $#!% MY KNICKERS!"

JACOB:  "AND, YOU ALMOST FELL OFF
THE BRIDGE AS WELL!
I DEFINITELY LEARNED A LESSON THAT DAY,
NEVER SNEAK UP ON A MAN,
WHILE HE IS MEDITATING!
OH, NEXT IS A PHOTO OF MY MASQUERADING
AS A TOP-SIDER."

VINCENT: "YES, AND I MUST SAY,
DESPITE A MOTH HOLE OR TWO,
YOU LOOK QUITE DAPPER
IN YOUR 1950'S CLOTHES.
AND THE FEDORA, IS A VERY NICE TOUCH."

JACOB: "I DIDN'T FEEL SO DAPPER!
THAT SUIT WAS QUITE STIFLING!  
SO JUST GIVE ME MY WOOL TUNIC ANY DAY,
AND YOU CAN HAVE THE DAPPER TIE,
THE DAPPER SUIT,
AND THE DAPPER HAT!"

VINCENT:  "DON'T MIND IF I DO!"

JACOB: "IT'S YOURS! AND SPEAKING OF DAPPER,
YOU DEFINE THE WORD!"

VINCENT: "THANKS DADDIO!
LET'S SEE WHAT PHOTO IS NEXT..."

JACOB:  "OH, IT'S OF CATHERINE AND I."

VINCENT:  "YES, CATHERINE WANTED TO
CONTRIBUTE
TO YOUR MONTAGE, AND UNFORTUNATELY,
THE ONLY PHOTO SHE HAD OF YOU BOTH
TOGETHER, WAS WHEN YOU WERE
INCARCERATED..."
RR

JACOB: "WELL, AT LEAST IT IS A FLATTERING PHOTO
OF THE BACK OF CATHERINE'S HEAD..."

VINCENT: "TRUE, HER HAIR DOES LOOK LOVELY,
BUT AS FAR AS YOU ARE CONCERNED,
I AM THINKING, THE CASUAL DENIM ATTIRE
SEEMS TO SUIT YOU FATHER,
KIND OF GIVES YOU A MORE
YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE."

JACOB: "I SEE WHAT YOU MEAN!
TOO BAD FOR ME THEN, THAT I HAD TO TURN IN THE
STATE ISSUED CLOTHING UPON MY RELEASE."

VINCENT: "SPEAKING OF FASHION,
HERE IS A PHOTO,
WITH ME IN ONE OF MY FAVORITE SHIRTS..."

JACOB:  "I RECALL TEASING YOU  A BIT,
SAYING IT LOOKED LIKE A PIRATE'S BLOUSE!"

VINCENT:  "YES, AND I WORE IT,
DESPITE YOUR CHIDING,
AND I BELIEVE IT SERVED ME WELL...
AS I WAS A BIT OF A HIT WITH BOTH
CATHERINE AND BRIGIT THAT NIGHT.  NEXT..."
RR


VINCENT: "AHHH, GAME #1656,
NOW THIS GAME I WON...
AND IT WAS DUE TO THE FACT,
YOU WOULD NOT PUT DOWN
YOUR CORRESPONDENCE!
IT SEEMS PEOPLE
ARE NOT FULLY ENGAGED ANYMORE..."

JACOB:  "GUILTY AS CHARGED VINCENT...
I SWEAR, NO MORE READING WHILE PLAYING.
AWE, LOOK WHAT'S NEXT..."
RR

JACOB: "WHAT A TREASURE THIS PHOTO IS TO ME!
AN ACTUAL AFFECTIONATE MOMENT
FROM MY MACHO SON!"

VINCENT:  "YES, MY THERAPIST
HAS HELPED ME OPEN UP...
AND GET IN TOUCH WITH MY SOFTER SIDE."

JACOB: "AS PER THE NEXT PHOTO,
IT APPEARS I HAVE A SOFT SIDE TOO.
WHAT CAN I SAY,
I SUPPOSE WE ARE JUST AN AFFECTIONATE,
DEMONSTRATIVE CLAN."
RR

VINCENT:  "YES FATHER, I QUITE AGREE,
AND THE NEXT PHOTO BELOW, IS THE PROOF!
AFTER SEEING THIS PHOTO
THERE IS NO DENYING
THAT YOU ARE AN OLD SOFTY..."

JACOB:  "ALL RIGHT,
THAT'S ENOUGH OF THAT TOUCHY FEELY STUFF,
NOW BOTTLE IT UP,
AND TURN THE PAGE TO SEE WHAT IS NEXT."

VINCENT:  "WELL, I THOUGHT I WOULD END
THIS PHOTO ALBUM,
WITH A SPLENDID PHOTO OF YOU FATHER..."
RR


JACOB: "WELL VINCENT,
I AM HUMBLED BY THIS WHOLE THING...
AND I DARE SAY,
THAT IS A SPLENDID PHOTO, OF MYSELF
ISN'T IT?"

VINCENT:  "INDEED IT IS...
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY FATHER."
A HUGE THANK YOU TO CABB
FOR THE PHOTOS!
