FFFF-MEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Family Fun Foto Friday:

FamilyFotoFunFriday



Me and my sister approximately 1983 at the Yakima Airshow.

As though I need a reason to post about myself, Diana has forced me to go through my photos and find pictures of me. The trouble is, I have, out of necessity had to skip the majority of my life. The theme for this week is "Me." I, personally, can't think of a better theme.

Some things about me:

* I was born in "General Hospital."

* I got my glasses in 3rd grade.

* I began to have others call me Jim, instead of Jimmy, in the 7th grade.

* I have liked airplanes forever...for reasons unknown to me my fifth grade teacher referred to me as "B-17!" in the years afterward...probably because he forgot my real name.

* I also dig navy ships.

* I am actually a genius, but I don't spread it around, and purposely act like an idiot to throw people off my track!

* I am a Substitute teacher, popular with the kids because I refuse to grow up. But History is my main thing!

Enough of that, here are the photos.

My bestfriend and me. 1992

This is a candid photo my sister took of me during a good friend's wedding. I have always liked it.1998?
Cora and I have travelled...not quite to Paris...Walt Disney World, though.1999.
My love of airplanes has remained a secret, so I will out myself. This is one of only 4 B-36s remaining...I have seen two of them. I am sure this is the first time I have mentioned this.2004.
I have a thing for anchors, this is the 20,000 lb anchor of the USS Tripoli, which was pierside at Mare Island when I visited. 2004.
Although, rarer than anchors, I also have a thing for BOMBS...this is a Mark III atomic bomb shape.2005.
This is me on the beach, near Edmonds, Washington, 2006.
I discovered I like kites in 2006.

This is me attempting to be artistic...note the pear on the wall...I did that in 2004, in California.

I like new forms of headwear...

I had seen most of the pictures that Cora posted, but not yours. I saved them. Without permission. I hope you don't sue me. I am sure you have them copyrighted.

I think I've seen almost all those photos. Nice picks. I accept the compliment of being in the most photos with you 2nd only to Cora (I was in the Eiffel tower one too if you look in your sunglass's reflection). -- mom didn't even make one picture, poor mom.

I think this blog entry kinda sums up your life statement =D
love sis

you could use photoshop and put your favorite snl in some too.
