    Here's my family:


    I hope she's a bit more human looking now considering that she will be disrupting our lives later this month.

    He got his first set of fatigues during Army service (stationed in France in the 50s) and wore them for yard work until about 1986, when sis-the-doc signed up to work at a base burn unit. She provided the outfit in technical fabrics.

    Photo is from the mid 90's; from the viewpoint, I can tell my mother took it. The house was contemporary when they built it in the 60s, and it still is.

    If my mother had taken the picture, he would have lost the top of his head or one side of his face. She never learned how to compensate for viewfinders that weren't through the lens.

    I really don't have any photos of me from the past year, except maybe my driver's license.

    This one's about two years old, taken with my then-SO. (We're still good friends.)

    My son and I in the canoe down in Big Bend NP in Texas last summer. And my daughter, 4, petting baby bunnies at the Santa Fe Grower's Market this past June. She gains most of her sustenance from cuteness...

    There is a wife, too. She prefers not to be represented...

    Indeed.

    couldn't have said it any better than that.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I will echo this... and shake his hand for me, tell him Thank You.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    As a vet, I know that it's harder on the home folks than the soldier. Hang in there.

    I can concur, as a non-vet. My bro-in-law has been deployed to Afghanistan since March. Every time I talk to him via the internet he's more concerned about how my wife (his sister) is doing, than what's going on over there.

    My niece has hers later this month. It's her second deployment, last one was Iraq. It is very tough on those left behind.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?
