What's the first thing you save if your house is on fire
(after the kids, grandma and the cats)?
Your photo albums (or nowadays, your hard drive)!
That's why it's a little unnerving to find something so precious and personal as someones family photos for sale in a thrift store, especially in the case of Vicki Ann Henninger, where her entire young life, from birth to 18, is documented in studio portraits.
I also feel a certain kinship with her as it seems we've shared many of the same hair-do decisions over the years.
I can only wish for a happy ending where Vicki is alive and well, has a thriving career, blissful marriage, wonderful kids and lives down the street so I can walk over and return her pictures (and a batch of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies is given in return).
If it turns out she died in a police shootout while robbing a bank in 1992, please keep the news to yourself.
