DW's grandnieces are visiting SIL (grandma) 15 minutes away for this week and one came over for a visit. This is the younger one, 5, who was definitely NOT in the mood for sitting still but can be bribed with mint chocolate chip ice cream. I wanted to sent it to her parents to warn them they're getting back more than they dropped off....

Not recent, but the Not So Recent Photo thread is closed.

Going through old pics, found this one, circa 1980.......company newspaper wanted a shot of some moronic looking dweeb, ostensibly perusing 'something'...seems I fit the bill:

I finally have a picture to contribute to this topic.

In the summers I work as an usher at an outdoor concert venue, Blossom Music Center. It's the summer home of The Cleveland Orchestra. This year my son, a freelance sound engineer, worked for the orchestra as the sound operator for the lawn and also for the pavilion if the concert had singers or needed a PA system for speakers. Some of the conductors like to talk to the audience and explain the piece.

Blossom Music Center

I've been so proud to have him there! He's done a wonderful job and I've introduced him to many of my fellow ushers and my supervisors.

The summer concert season is over after Labor Day weekend so I told him I wanted a picture of both of us before this is over.

We took the picture before most of the guests arrived. The pavilion holds 5,470 and another 13,500 can fit on the lawn. It sells out for many of the Live Nation rock and country groups but for the orchestra they'll get 4,000 to maybe 10,000 total.

As threatened......pics of the twin girls, first one taken two days ago, others taken yesterday.....two days old and "Ready to Rumble".









(Re the tattoos - I got them when I was a very dumb 14 year old....thought they were great for 6 months....hated them for ~ 58 years. I've said, often to young female cashiers at supermarkets, that "You'll regret those", but they don't understand......YET.)

The eldest, (smaller and thus far livelier), is Alice, and the younger one is Victoria.

Also taken last evening, the twins' (will be four in late December) 'older' sister (I told her that, when they start walking, she can march them up and down the hallway).........she's as sharp as the proverbial tack.....just prior to this pic her dad was suggesting a variety of options for dinner and her response to each was "No".

He then asked if "No" was all she knew how to say......I was watching her eyes, they blinked for about 1/10th of a nanosecond and she came right back with "No, thank you" and laughed her head off.

No way am I going to post my mug on the internet, as others seem to have no problem doing, but here is a picture of me earlier in my First-Summer-of-ER. I am working happily in my first year garden...I posted this picture on the MMM forums where the ladies of the forum (and a few dudes ) really seemed to appreciate it. So, here ya go.

And Nemo, good to see you. I remember you from a certain "Canadian" money forum.
