    I reckon I've posted this photo somewhere on this forum before, and it is my avatar, but here is a photo from last year's Independence Day parade. One of my rare more photogenic moments, though I figure it's the horse and mountains more than me that makes the photo.

    I believe your image is also part of
    what makes this photo outstanding!

    My "best looking" photo is probably this one, from my cousin's junior high graduation a few years back:

    But I love this one from the Chicago March for Science:

    My wife and I at Arnaud's in NOLA a few years back. For some reason I just keep getting greyer and fatter!

    Apparently a proper white tie ensemble can make just about anyone look good.

    This photo drew one of my favourite complimentary insults. I describe it as such because compliments and insults are poles apart, but when someone said I look like the "Fat Controller" from the children's television series: Thomas the Tank Engine, later redefined as "Sir Topham Hat," for politically correct purposes, (shame,) I wasn't at all insulted, in fact, I thought it a compliment. So much so, that not having a top hat, I took the fedora off and announced myself as: The Fat Controller at a fancy dress party a year or so ago.

    It brought many a smile, but the winner by far was Tina, who with her talent at the sewing maching, conjured up an outfit that was instantly recognisable as that of Christina Aguilera's: Candyman.

    What won it was when the tunic came off: Somehow I just don't think that I could upstage this:

    I admire your no nonsense stance.

    I would be careful to cast insults in person to you.

    You look like someone that will tell it
    like it is with no b.s.

    Tina is adorable!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Same here. It's like putting a fresh coat of paint on a junkyard wreck. :confused:

    Your perception is very accurate. Being a manager in charge of a large workforce is not for everyone. But I not only enjoyed it, I thrived on it. It was having the ability to know what made people tick. Some you had to cajole, some you coaxed, others were more willing and some you simply had to be tough with, otherwise they would walk all over you. The latter were my favourites, I was always up for a verbal joust, a test of will and an assertion of my ability. I wasn't always right, but I was always the manager.

    Although I do have a pair of round specs.
    But that’s about it!

    I have always had a liking for this shot, myself rocking the short-sleeved mock turtleneck. 1989, aged 22 just before joining the RCAF, taken at a pub in Liverpool, England, with our dear friend Bill behind me (rest in peace, mate).
