Re: PICTURE POST II!

Here a Woolworth's strip of me from about 1979, 18 year old Flukie.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Finished another new piece of jewelry tonight:




This is another one I'll eventually sell.

This is a re-do- I just added the arrows. I can't sell this one, because I didn't design the cross stitch chart.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Flukie looked a lot better in the seventies than a whole lot of other dudes I know, and that includes some guys I've known most of my life. That photo could easily pass for '80s Flukie as well since a lot of guys back then didn't get the memo that the fashions of the Ford and Carter Administrations were supposed to go out when Gary Numan and the Human League hit the charts.

It just seems so ... lifeless. Ah well ... Maybe I should try watching Voyager again. Maybe it'll change my impression.

To get back on topic ... I'll share one more photo from my recent trip to the zoo:

I love it, just a beautiful bird you can't go wrong!

Here is a picture I took the other day at the lake.

1990.
Knowing the wide range of ages here, I can't assume crap. Which one are you?
Good point. I'm the Dad.

22 years later, now with extra daughter in law (married to youngest)!

One hundred bonus points to the first person who posts a picture of somebody in an Edie Brickell & New Bohemians t-shirt.

Benjamin Franklin was a Renaissance man, a genius and a patriot, but the man had his head clean up his whore-chasing ass when it came to picking the country's national bird.
From 1776 (the musical):
(debating on America's national bird)
John Adams: The eagle.
Thomas Jefferson: The dove.
Dr. Benjamin Franklin: The turkey.
John Adams
: The eagle.
Thomas Jefferson
: The dove.
John Adams
: The eagle!
Thomas Jefferson
: (considers) The eagle.
Dr. Benjamin Franklin
: The turkey.
John Adams: The eagle. The eagle is a majestic bird!
Dr. Benjamin Franklin
: The eagle is a scavenger, a thief and coward. A symbol of over ten centuries of European mischief.
John Adams
: And the turkey?
Dr. Benjamin Franklin
: The turkey is a truly noble bird. Native american, a source of sustenance to our original settlers, and an incredibly brave fellow who wouldn't flinch from attacking a whole regiment of Englishmen single-handedly! Therefore, the national bird of America is going to be...
John Adams
: The eagle!
Dr. Benjamin Franklin
: The eagle!
(Franklin is dumbstruck)

(My wife loves this movie, especially John Adams' depiction!)
