So, how old was Barry O in this picture with his paternal grandmother? I don't think it could possibly have been just four years ago.
According to this rather questionable pro-Obama timeline, he was 26 and it was 1988. Probably correct, give or take a year or three. Although there are reports of a 1981 visit as well. (If BHO was born in August of '61, as his posted "Certification of Live Birth" says, he would have turned 27 in August of '88)
This is a photo from his 2006 visit to "The Old Country".

Here's a photo from a trip in 1987, Why Obama Wept For His Father
By the time he arrived in Kenya in 1987 for a month-long visit prior to moving to Boston to begin law school, Barack Obama had already learned some surprising truths about his father from his half sister Auma.
During an earlier visit to Chicago, she had told Obama that she and her brother Roy were born before their father left for Hawaii in 1959 and were living with their mother in Kogelo when he returned from America with a new wife, a white woman named Ruth. ............

I think that photo in question had to have been from 1981. He looks way too juvenile for it to have been in either 1988 or 2004. Not that he doesn't look inherently juvenile.
