An old friend ?

It all started when I asked my sister about an old radio which should have been a piece of antique by now; I have forgotten that it has been taken by this individual. That seems to be a very long time ago.
So, out of curiousity, I tried to search online, typed his name and voila...his name came about...but through his daughter's blog !
In one of the entry is about her early days, the story about her parents and how she came about on this earth. She put up some pictures and after cringing my eyes at the low res pics it was confirmed that he is the right person. I could still recall his face. And the early pic of her parents while they were still dating, he was wearing a white short, which sort of was his somewhat uniform, working as an assistant manager at one of plantation estate. GUTHRIE !
Ah..memories came flooding back. Reading and looking at the pictures, plenty of water has gone under the bridge for him as well. He got married to "that girl" had three kids and got divorced.If my rough calculation is correct they must have been married for at least 14 years. Both went on their own path and few years later he remarried.
Now they are in Taiping.
From her perspective, her father is "everything" and she loves him very much, what she wrote must have been stories as told by her father and mother of how they met, fall in love and raised their family.
Quietly I told myself.... Girl..there are plenty of things that you do not know about your father and mother. The UNTOLD stories. I wonder what was/were the reasons of their divorce !
I had a strong inclination to put up a comment on her blog, but on second thought I decided it is better to let it go. Let it rest and sleep in peace.

What a small world.
