Some of the people I work with keep 3 lists posted in their areas: Dear to Me, On Notice (means its about to get kicked to the Dead to Me list and finally Dead to Me. I thought it would be fun to do something like that here. Each list should have no more than 5 -6 items and no fair listing parents,kids etc. as dear to me, that's a given.

Have fun and here goes mine:

Dear to Me

ahhh Lucy! Let me 'splain it to you. Here in real CALIFORNIA, 5 miles from the ocean, the :sunny: sun sets for the day. It seems that EVERY time I have had a picture taken of the back of my head, since I was 40 anyway, the sun is setting, it really doesn't matter what time of day either. Anyway, the only thing I can think of is that there is a reflection off of some glass or something. Weired, I know, in fact yesterday the barber, Jack, who can actually cut my hair in 2.5 minutes, handed me the mirror to see if the back was to my satisfaction...and WA-LA...there was the reflection....weired!

Here is a picture that I was e-mailed yesterday, from the photographer that took pictures at the 5K Angie and I did at Thanksgiving. I guess he :dunno: "thought" I would want it :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

These legs look might "beefy" compared to your DH's...:rofl: :no: :rofl:

I labled it "fat dad walking" in my picture folder!
