Young...

... check this out...... long, long ago, people... ole T1G has certainly blossomed since that photo were taken, no?.... yes..... hell, I hardly recognized him myself...... apart from his trademark scowl, that is....

... as for me, I haven't exactly aged too well either.... a bit wide around the midsection nowadays and my head is a bit rounder.... shoulders have a little more bulk..... but seeing as T1G was brave enough to show us a shot of himself as a younger T1G, I'll show my Solidarity In Decrepitude and play along..... here I am in the summer of 1992 preparing to hit Europe wide open..... the years have not been kind since 1992... not by a long shot....

.... I do still make that face quite a lot though...... even after all these years... it really is a happy face....

Happy? Okay. I'll take your word for it... You look like you kind of want to shoot someone - works for 007 though, so hey... It's all good.

(Handsome guy - then and now.) ; )

That's the same face that made me recite poetry from a book, against my will.

"Slowly. Slower..."

I swear, if that look had asked me to get a gun and go kill bad guys, I woulda done that, too!

Ooo-rah! God bless our Marines!

Hell, by then, I had two toddlers, and an expression that was close, due to double diaper bills. Them pampers ain't cheep now.

Interesting to compare that shot of you with the photo of you and your dad. Lord knows he can't disown you! You really do look like him. I was tempted to take out the crayon and draw a mustache and beard on your photo.

What a cutie! *grin*

1992... darling daughter was 13 and young son was 9. I'm sure I looked much much meaner than you think you do in that picture. LOL.

Hah! I'm years ahead of you! I was already decrepit in 1992!

My oldest grandchild was born in '92. You're just a sprout. If the Marines would have let high school graduates fly some of their precious aircraft I'd have had prettified uniforms too. But the Army was more generous with their training money back in '69. That said..........Hooray Marines!

Is that the expression you wore when you brandished the shovel? Heh!

As young as you were, you looked like a man and a Marine. At that age, I looked... 12. :)

Heheheh... look good, bro!

Believe it or no, that pic of mine was from June of '92. But I was twenty four at the time...

Ever thought about trying that blouse on again? Heh... I'm pretty certain you couldn't do it, only because your shoulders have widened out. But imagine me... like Chris Farley. "Fat guy in a little coat..."

Wow.
I am....

Are there more like you? LOL

You haven't changed that much really. Although you're dressed a tad smarter in the photograph than I remember. As for your "happy face" - looks more like a "do not fuck with me" face.

Bullshitted by Mark on December 6, 2007 09:56 AM

Wow. In that picture you look almost exactly like my Dad when he was that age. Spooky!

Lookin' good, but, as was said at T1G's, what in the hell do you guys do with your hands behind your backs, anyway? Or is that an "I'd have to kill you if I told you" kind of thing?
