I can see why you redacted your last name, Michael--admit it, it's McConaughey, isn't it?

So totally unrelated to pictures of us fine ER folk, but I captured an especially nice (and recent) photo of a fantastic pornstache at the music festival. The bass player for Ha Ha Tonka is absolutely smokin'!

The problem with Facebook is that long ago your elders got copies of your photos from your parents, and you couldn't do anything about that. Then those elders got Facebook accounts and insisted on posting these "blasts from the past" where your daughter can see them... much to her amusement.

I don't think we were allowed to grow porn mustaches at the Academy, but I sure saw a lot of them in the submarine force.

For those of you who know what those starred anchors mean, no, this is not Photoshopped. I really actually did not get caught receive an "A" in conduct that semester.

The full dress blouse in that photo has literally been donated to the Smithsonian Institution.

Austin before it was ruined. I was at SMU in 1980 with a short preppy haircut.

OK, here's one of me and my brothers circa 1969. This was my 3rd year running the family farm after my DF died. I'm the 20 year old.

And no, I'm not related to Jed.

We had just finished moving the building behind us (with the help of a contractor) 8 miles to our farmsite. Building was 25' X 50', IIRC the move, foundation etc., all in was about $5K.
