Nah, I know it's just a joke 'cause I don't look nuthin' like Haystacks; I don't have the beard.

I actually saved Haystacks' pic as my wallpaper on my work desktop.* It cracks me up--especially after digging into programming problems.* His image surprises me when I close my coding windows and I just laugh seeing him there.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing about your current avatar-- is that her 40th-anniversary celebration?
