Here's a pic of me at 10 months old, little fat pig that I was. But I was awfully adorable, wasn't I? I've grown into my own, though, and believe I can still turn a head or two.
Enjoy the pictures on this page, as they are me and mine, my family, my beloved, my life.

(by the way, there is no chronology to these pictures, as you will see)

BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! KEEP SCROLLING DOWN!

Horizontal Divider 19

This is my mom as a young girl, Susan Adrienne Mann Yaffee

This is a childhood picture of my mother, Susan, who passed at the age of 51 in the early 90's. She was my biggest fan and my best friend. I wanted to include this picture because I think it shows her honesty, sincerity, and beauty, everything she always was to me. Mom, I love you and miss you.

Baby Scott (have no idea how old I was-probably 2)

This is me, cute and adorable me, at 2 (I think). As you can see by the picture, I once had a full head of hair, no belly, dimples, and an obviously VERY gay doll. (hmmmmmmm.....) Anyway, I grew up to be who I am and I am damned proud of who I am, but this is the innocence I came from. Isnt it ironic?

Here are my parents, Michael & Susan Yaffee.

This is a pic of my mom and dad, Michael and Susan Yaffee, posing (as my mother LOVED to do in all her best bells and bangles!) in our home in Wilmington, Delaware, where I lived from 1985-1988 (my family moved up a few years earlier, leaving me in Atlanta to make a royal mess of my life!) I think this is one of the best shots of my parents as it shows their happiness and love for each other. Life was beautiful for them. Mom and Dad were always at the peak of fashion and always tried to look their best. I guess it came from their upbringing, always putting your best foot forward and being proud of where we came from, being Jewish, our whole family is immogrants (like most Americans.) My parents always instilled a feeling of tradition in me and I honor them both for their encouragement and love. (Can you hear me Mom????)

My sister Jennifer as a baby (she's way older now!)

Here we see baby Jenny, also known as my beloved sister Jennifer Beth Yaffee. Lower down this page is a pic of Jennifer taken recently but I thought I would include this one, showing Jennifer as a sweet baby. Honestly, I believe my sister was the absolute cutest most adorable baby I've ever seen, and certainly with the sweetest temperment. I wont tell you her age (I know how women hate to reveal that), but she is completing her PhD at Colorado State and venturing into the world of research psychology. Jennifer, you were a beautiful baby, and, you'll always be my beautiful little sister. I love you, kiddo!

My Bar Mitzvah (gimme a break, I was 13!)

Here we see the Yaffee clan, circa 1977, at the bodacious affair that became known as the Grandest Bar Mitzvah the Yaffee's and friends have ever seen. (Notice the ruffled shirts and wide lapels. Why oh why did we dress like that? How horrible. Well, at least I wasnt wearing platform shoes.)

family portrait 1979 (i think-er-um...)

Here we see me (oh wow did I have long hair. makes me weep now!), mom, my sister Jennifer, and my beloved grandmother Hannah Mann, who passed, ironically, almost 6 years to the day after mom.

A teenage Hanna Linkow (Mann) - very lovely and sweet.

This picture, probably taken around 1925, shows my grandmother Hannah probably around 15 or so (I'm guessing). I love this picture as it shows the woman I knew as my grandmother as a young, impish, maybe a bit mischievous teenager (notice her smirk). Grandma Hanna was very important in my life and was always there with love for me and my sister, her only two grandchildren. I know in her next life she looks just like she does in this wonderful picture, beautiful and happy. Grandma, I love and miss you.

mollyteen.jpg

Above is a picture of my grandmother Molly Yaffee, in her teens, taken I assume sometime in the 1920's. Though she passed away Jan, 2001, I will always remember my grandmother as loving, caring, and beautiful. This picture is for you, grandma. I love you.

me, sis, mom, and Aunt Hilda

Ok, I'm wearing a Yamalcha (to those of you who arent Jewish, it's the gold beanie on my head!) so I'm assuming this pic was taken at my grandparents' (Paul and Hannah) during Passover-the holiday of dry crackers and bland food and the whole angel of death passing over the bloodstained doorways of ancient Egypt (read your bible!!). From l to r, Mom, Jennifer, Aunt Hilda (Hanna's sister), and me. My Aunt Hilda was very special to me, having never married, she regarded me and my sister as her grandchildren, her two loves in this sometimes lonely world. She was and still is greatly missed and thought of often in love.

dad and jennifer

Dad and sis looking OH SO PROFESSIONAL. Dad was in town for a meeting and he and Jen got together for dinner (I'm guessing here since they are both dressed up. They look pretty good!

me and the grandmas

This pic was taken in the early 90's with both Grandmothers, Hannah on my right, Molly on my left. I cherished the relationship I had with my grandparents. They are since passed, but will forever remain alive and loving in my heart, and truly, truly missed. Love ya Han! Love ya Mol!

Me, Grandma Molly, and sister Jennifer

This picture was taken Thanksgiving, 2000, at my Aunt Sheila and Uncle Sid's place in Houston, Tx. It was the last time I saw my Grandmother Molly and I am so happy that I was able to spend that time with her before she died. From l to r, me, Grandma Molly Yaffee (dad's mom), and sis Jennifer. Molly was always the eternal grandmother who did all those "grandmother things." She passed painlessly and is in a better place now. I still say good night to her when I go to sleep.

Pauland Susan Mann 1950s

This is another of those great black and white nostolgic pictures that I just love. Most of these were rescued when Hannah Mann (mom's mom) died and she had literally drawers full of pix. Well I took them and put a few on here. This one is of my grandfather Paul Mann standing with my mom, Susan, taken sometime in the 50's outside their home. I love to look at pics like this one, pics that show where I come from, and I have to tell you, anonymous reader, I come from good people.

pointingatuscott.jpg

Mom lounging on our deck in Wilmington, Delaware. This was one of her favorite places to come to read, listen to music, or just relax beneath the blades of the fan above her on a warm summer day. I'll always remember my mom like this, smiling, happy, comfortable.

dad, sis, and me

This was taken Memorial Day weekend, 2001. Dad and Jennifer both came to Atlanta and we had a fabulous time. This is my family. My father and sister are the two most important people in the world to me and I adore them. Even more now that Dad took my advice and gave up the "I wanna look like Santa Claus" routine.

momjenifer

Heres mom Susan and sis Jennifer sitting at the kitchen table (Wilmington, i think??) shooting the shit. We had (have) a very close knit immediate family. We were always there for each other with encouragement, faith, and undeniable love. (as a side fact, bot Jen and mom are Leo's and Dad and myself are both Aires. Makes ya think.....

cousin Sandi

Above we see my cousin Sandi, who resided in sunny southern California (can't you tell by the great tan?) What can I say about my cousin Sandi. She's more than family. She is a friend, and through the miracle of technology, we keep in touch on a regular basis. I love ya, cuz!!! (Update: It pains me immenseley to say, but Sandi passed away January 2nd at 145pm. She went peacefully and is in a better place now)

me and little sis

Here we see little Jennifer with a not much taller me, posing like this, arm in arm PROBABLY because mom said to or else....There was a lot of sibling rivalry between me and Jen, but in the long run, we are now best of friends.

Grandma Hanna, Grandpa Paul, Mom Susan, and sis Jennifer

This is a pic of my Grandmother Hannah, Grandfather Paul, my mom Susan, and my sister Jennifer on our deck at the 1st house we lived in in Dunwoody, Ga., probably circa early 80's. I LOVE this picture, so wanted to include it here because everyone is so happy in this shot. Makes me happy to look at it and remember. ("...those were the days my friends, we thought they'd never end, we'd sing and dance forever and a day...")

Mom Teens

This is a rare pic of my Mom taken sometime in the 50's. Its amazing what a black and white picture does for nostolgia. I love this picture because it shows a surface innocence with a hint of "spirit" not too far from that surface. Go get 'em, Mom! Just remember, you are a lady!

scott n jen

Here we see our hero (me) and sister Jennifer posing before going out to dinner. If memory serves me, we went to a restaurant where I got really sick and never went back. Oh, the memories......!

ready for a fight?

Here we see our hero, at his faithful computer, ready to defend the world from bad hair, satanic republicans, and feng shui....ready for a scrap!!! Bring it on, baby!!!

Molly and Louis at Stephen's Bar Mitzvah, 197???
