    I was asked to wait till the new forums got started---- so here goes...hope there are some takers seeing as i don't wanna be the only fool doing this (although I see Steve has already posted one on his profile )

    Please post before and afters...pick your favorite childhood pic (in my case--- a scary hairy pic) and your most current available photo (no funky angles no --half faces) just your best mug forward...

    thanks

    Hmmm, post a childhood photo? I'll have to see if I can dig one out. I gotta warn you though, I was incredibly cute back then! :-)

    In the meantime, here's a fairly recent shot. June 2003. Self portrait, taken with a Coolpix 3500 balanced on my desk.

    I'm going to dig one up

    I just deleted all this old stuff off the computer. But I have some good ones..or not so good ones, depending on how you look at it.

    Also, are you sure you were two in that first pic? When I was two, I still had a head like a cue ball. Come to think of it, I was probably four before I got some decent hair...

    Geez, I'll have to take a current photo and dig around to find a child pic...I think I looked like Opie, from the Andy Griffith Show when I was little. :-)

    age 7, I think.

    Apparently back in the old days, when you wanted to crop a photo, you took out your scissors and cut it, because this is exactly how I found this one. Can you believe people actually dressed their kids like this? Wow, am I a dork.

    OR THESE
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...u=63633&is=USA

    those HUGE terrestrial binos are not good for birding. my close focus needs to be under 15 feet and most big binos are 25 ft+

    i buy top quality gear with a life time idiot proof warranty when ever i can....... i'm an idiot at times

    I'm in

    OK, I'll drop my internet guard since I've already posted the childhood picture once before, and a self portrait as well. Both photos were scanned, not very well because I'm not used to scanning. Oh well. I chopped my maid of honor out of the current picture; I'm sure she'd understand.

    Is it authentic buffalo skin?

    My life as a wandering smartass. I guess the burning question is: am I a product of HEREDITY or ENVIRONMENT?

    Well, considering I was raised by very funny parents in the suburbs of New York City, I'd have to say the answer is BOTH...

    Anyway, here are four small snaps to document parts of my snickering journey through life...
