I have located a rare photo of the elusive Kerouac family. The moustache on the left might be the older brother. The well fed older people are probably the parents, and I believe that young Kerouac might be trying to hide in the back.

unless of course he's standing on a box.... ;D
Nice to meet you guys.... I am not sure if I'm brave enough.....never been particularly photogenic (fact, not fishing) but I love this pic..Daddy in the middle, me on the left and my niece on the right....
my favourite pic of OH....taken at a 'punk party' we had on my 50th
Looks like the start of a fan club Kerouac ;D ! Joking aside, you are a hard act to follow - having given out so much useful information and help on the Paris/France subject. I'm not only referring to AnyPort but other travel sites like Fodors have been lucky to have your valuable input on many subjects. Just for you!
Mich, very nice photo of you and your in-laws. You are three lovely ladies! (Your sister-in-law and her mom look very alike, don't they?) Also, sweet photo of you and your husband, with the beautiful background.
K, thanks for introducing us to the Kerouacs! You have a lovely family.
Good to see you, too, Cheery! That is a darling family photo. And the one of your handsome punk rock husband is so fun.

I like pics that sum up a moment in time....for instance...My Dad's retirement 'do'
We planned a surprise party for Mum and Dad on the occasion, like a military operation my 4 sisters and I went along to the posh (for us) venue and my brother Mike picked up Mum and Dad saying that he was taking them for a celebratory drink at the hotel...
For weeks beforehand we'd been planning it....and my sister was saying that us siblings don't really look much alike. We talked about all wearing the same colour, or tartan or some other ruse to demonstrate the fact that we were all from the same clan...and at the time (being slightly sozzled) I was wearing my son's Groucho Marx glasses....then PING I had an idea....
The meal went very well, Mummy and Daddy were suitably surprised and we had a very nice time. At the end I furtled in my bag and under the table passed out six pairs of plastic Groucho Marx glasses, my sister Pat produced six cigars (also without my Parents seeing) whilst we were chatting....
Then I said 'Isn't it funny, how you can have six children who all look so different?...well we've thought of a way to rectify the situation' and on cue we all bent down, put on the glasses and looked up...the entire restaurant errupted...everybody was in hysterics (even the waiters)....I got one of the waiters to take this pic...unfortunately he wasn't that confident with the camera (not his fault)
we're not all on it...left to right : me, sister Sue, sister Peggy, brother Michael, sister Nicola Mum and Dad...you can't see Pat
Dad and Mum loved it....and joined in....happy days... ;D
