Coming Out, Everybody's Doing It Now

Our old multi-function printer had gradually become enfeebled, losing each of its functions one by one. The last one, printing, finally went by the wayside last week, so I had to go out and find a new one. Having canvased every single variation of consumer electronics stores in our area, I finally managed to make a decision and today plunked down a hundred bucks for a new AIO scanner, printer, copier and popcorn maker. In an initial testing of the fruits of my shopping labors, a scanning in of some of our family photos, some more embarassing than others.

For Eor: The "Unbreakable" paste lid



For AnnaBelle: Our Akitas





For Boodiba: My Brother and I

How cute are you!! You kind of look like my high school boyfriend, Dave Watson.

I bet you listened to a lot of Zeppelin & Floyd.

that was the general era but i really didn't have any particular allegeances. i was a type-less sort, part of no one's crowd.

let me know when and if you're ready to trade photo embarrassments and i'll dig up something suitably fair to balance your alleged rolls of fat. maybe i can find that moobs pic somewhere. but, this time, you can go first.

Those dogs are ADORABLE, I want to pet them right now!!!!

You and your brother are pretty cute too.

Did you know that Shiba Inus are in the same family as Akitas? Roar! (Woof?)

I was cool. SO cool...

Ahhhh high school.

okrgr said...

yep, that's why i thought you might like them. they're the muy, muy grande version.

okrgr said...

high school wasn't my time yet.

It wasn't mine either. I'm a late bloomer. Any time now.

i wonder if my brother and i would look less weird if you were to photoshop our facial features about a third of the way up our faces. then we wouldn't have the neverending foreheads, exacerbated by the recessive chins and the summer haircuts.

like the power stripes on that shirt?

i'll have to be careful. it's temping with this new scanner to turn this into a slide show of all my kids and pets and family vacations to las vegas, etc.

i'm doing the kids at least for sure.

I peaked early. In high school I discovered that teachers and the system could be easily manipulated and I had my way with everything! I could never get in trouble cause I had all the authority in my back pocket (principal loved me). But in real life, you can't browbeat your boss!!

Also I peaked in relationship ability. From 18 to 25 had a relationship with a 6'5" totally shredded and gorgeous man who worshiped me. We were so lovey-dovey. One of those kinds of relationships that other people admire and hold up as an example.

Plus he had a solid six-pack and could do bicep curls with my entire body.

Ahhh.... college :)

I wish I could just cycle between the ages of 16 and 25.

Big foreheads and power stripes are just your attempt to sell this picture as somehow embarrassing.

I don't buy it. Those aspects are cute and you know it. It's all really cute, wow.

You are the younger, lighthearted one, then?

Gorgeous puppies! and children....

okrgr said...

no i like that shirt actually. i found an similar kind of shot of him and i from a different setting and we really look dorky in that one. there's a limit to my self exposure. soon as i find a photo in which i like how i look, i'll put it up. i think i have one in which i am a complete doppleganger for my son, differentiate-able only by the period clothing. just have so many pictires to dig thru to find such things.

okrgr said...

thanks LI. the dogs are now gone. they were the best pets i've ever had. my kids are a bit older now. they're the best kids i've ever had too.
