4th photo, 4th album

I was tagged by my sister, the Frau at http://fraukmwest.blogspot.com 
The Frau recently moved to Germany and writes of her adventures there.

Here are the rules...
Go to your 4th album where you store your photos, post the 4th picture there, no exceptions!

So, this happens to be a favorite picture of mine and a familiar sight at any family gathering. This is my Dad and my second born son on a family vacation on Long Beach island.
Gin is the game.
They play whenever we get together. There is a lot of banter, some cursing, and a bit of alcohol consumed.
I think you would say that this is their traditional family pastime.
This photo illustrates it perfectly.
Love them both.

Now, I tag anyone who thinks this would be fun. And if you've never commented here before, but are a regular reader- I encourage you to do this and then link me. It would be a good way to introduce yourself. C'mon!
