Yes he is! He is my best friend! ;)

We met 20 yrs ago when I was 17 and he was 20. It is so much fun watching each other slowly fall apart over the years! :lol:

He has held up very well! He still looks the same as the day I met him, except for the bald head. I like it better that way!

Hmmm. I'll have to think about that one... (we've been falling apart a lot longer than you have ;) )

He has held up very well!

So has mine, partly because we began the extra physical activity a while ago.

He still looks the same as the day I met him, except for the bald head. I like it better that way!

I can't say that about my DH, when we married he looked like Julian Bond's white twin (drool) (Julian kept his hair a longer time). He waited until we retired to let me shave the rest of his head, but I got so tired of his paying a baber to cut his few remaining hairs, and the barber left them long enough to comb!

Tell Fred God only made so many perfect heads, He put hair on the rest.

Hmm...well as a single person with no kids (at least no kids that aren't covered in fur) I was looking for pictures of me with mom and dad (I'm an only child) and couldn't find any...so I started looking for pictures of my family in general and I realized...this could explain A LOT about how I turned out just slightly crazy...

Dad, put down the alligator and step away!!!

My grandmother's solution to the playing golf durring the rain dilemma (yes I'm related to all these men, the one on the far left is my dad. Two of the others are his brothers and the one that looks like he's already had one too many is my dad's uncle):

My dad's brother...perhaps i should explain... He was having septic tank trouble so we made him a super-septic-diver kit so he could save some money. Putting it together only cost us about 23 bucks and about 4 hours in walmart...and I think they were relieved when we left. While he was grateful for our generosity and creativity, he decided to go with the new septic system instead of putting our engineering skills to good use.

Some men dress up as Santa at Christmas, my uncle...who knows what he was thinking.

We've even corrupted the young ones.

My famous kissy face...

And perhaps the only photo-worthy among us...Gigi, my grandmother's teacup pommeranian weighing in at a whopping 4 pounds. She actually has a playpen becuase she's so small when the house is crowded everyone is worried about either stepping on her or her becomming a chew toy for the bigger dogs.

Thanks for sharing the photos. I especially like Gigi. I'm sure she's tinier than any of my cats. How old is she?

She's about 2 now but the picture was taken when she was a few months old. I wish I had a picture of her with the other dogs. They all get tired and crash out on the floor and she uses them as big toys to climb on and chew on (their ears) and she chases their tails. One of these days, one of them is going to smack her across the room. They also have a cat and gigi is smaller than the cat. She reminds me of a little cotton ball with legs when she runs around. I'm not much of a fan of tiny dogs but she's hysterical and she fits in my purse....but she'd never actually stay in it...she's far too hyper for that.

Just found this thread and its wonderful pictures! Here are some pics of our family.

These were taken on Father's Day 2006

DH Lloyd

Xochitl, age 13, baker & decorator of the cake

Gabriela, age 15

Lloyd and me on our wedding day, June 2004

The girls' mother died in 2003. It's been an interesting run so far. Despite the turmoil of the past few years, which for the girls included moving from North Carolina back to New Orleans (where they were born), me coming into the family, getting run out of town by Katrina, moving to a totally foreign land (central Missouri ... lol), I'd say we're hanging in there pretty solidly!

I know this is a few months late. I would like to have a family portrait, but it is hard to get all of us together. Especially since Mike went back to driving OTR. Mike and I Still aren't in the photo. I had this taken at the state fair yesterday.

Joe, 14 (my stepson); Sheridan, 5; Mabyn, 15;

Well, I can see I've been out of the loop! :( I totally missed this thread!

Here's a picture of me and Brian at 'Medieval Times' in Chicago. Brian took me and some of our friends there for dinner and the show. All hail the 'King' and 'Queen'! :o

Tracy, were you suprised by how good the meal was? I certainly was. My expectation of the meal wasn't high, but I must say I enjoyed it more than the show!! :(

The only thing I did not like about the meal was my sticky fingers :( The "Dragon Tail" soup was great too

:( I know what you mean . . . I don't remember a napkin. I think wipes came at the end of the meal if I'm not mistaken. Guess they expected us to lick our fingers like in the olden days! :o
