(Billy is my father! I think she has to be 20 here after a year of thinking he was the worst.)

KINJA refuses to let me make this picture in between huge and tiny so huge it is.

ETA: My uncle back from the army dragged this fledgling musician in a beat up sports car over to their house and my Catholic mom thought he was very full of himself (he was) and didn't give him the time of day. She called him Billy Goat due to his name and facial hair as an insult but it later became a term of endearment! I guess he won her over with his music and hilarious fart jokes or something. She is from Georgia but grew up in Miami and had never been out of those two states but agreed to move all the way to Boston so he could go to and eventually teach at Berklee. She got her BA and masters and continues to be a BAMF in the Boston Public Schools. :)
