I, too, have to suffer with the Red X... attractive though it may be.

I don't know, but I am seeing the red X too... Maybe it will show up in a little while, since others here can see it.

It's a bmp file - maybe it needs to be a jpg? I'll see if I can change how it's saved.

EDIT: nope, it's a jpg. DUH!

Okay - can everyone see it now? I'm on the left in blue jeans. This was taken in October 2010, post-retirement. Look how relaxed we are (no it's not the beer)...

Taken on the night before a blues cruise... pre-cruise party.

Glad I got it fixed - I think I had just pasted it in the first time. This time I uploaded it. Who knows...

Retirement agrees with you Thinker. Your friends look like fun people to hang out with

That is great news--so in 20 years I'll hope that I look like Thinker, beer in hand!

They are - alas, both of these live 1500 miles from me on the west coast (and not near each other). We see each other on these blues cruises.

About some people not being able to see Thinker25's picture in her first post, I wonder if it was a function of your browser. I use Google Chrome and do not have a problem seeing it.

And about she's looking like a 50-yr old, heck, I know some people in the 40s looking like that.

Aw shucks, blush, blush.... I don't dye my hair either, genetics helps a lot. But also I just don't feel like there's any reason to dress or look "old". By the way, I'm 62 and that was my first beer of the night

In fact all 3 of us are 60 - 62. My advice? Stay crazy, don't forget to be impulsive... it helps.

Of course I combine that with a keen sense of the absurd.
