... I just want to take a minute to say thanks to Erica, Teresa, and Kudzu for being so concerned about my lack of bodyweight back when I was 17..... I truly do appreciate y'all's opinions.... and to think that my lithe frame gave you guys cause to worry, well, it just warms my heart......

... but as of right this minute, I'm 35 and weigh an enjoyable 200lbs...... but just to quell all of your worries about me being the world's tiniest Marine back in the day, I will point you all to a post that I put up just over two years ago...... photographic proof that - even at 160lbs - I would not blow away in a strong wind.....

.... still, though, you guys rock...... and Old Cloots finding it in his heart to offer me some of his mustache?...... I am without words, rubberneckers..... the kindness of bloggers knows no bounds.......

.... in other news, it is nearing the 8 O'clock hour here at The Compound..... and seeing as today is April 14th, that means that "The Professionals" is playing soon on Turner Classic Movies...... and it just so happens that "The Professionals" is one of my favorites!...

.... Lancaster, Lee Marvin, automatic weapons, buxom maidens, and whirling dervishes await...... I trust that you all will enjoy a wonderful evening...

Bullshit So Far

When I was a freshman in high school, me and five other freshmen got stuck in a sophomore P.E. class. I was young for my grade anyways. It was like getting sent to prison. I was short and skinny. I weighed 111 lbs. When we broke up into weight classes for wrestling only two weighed less than me...the 98 and 105 lb. varsity wrestlers. It was ugly.

I feel your pain. Except for being red-headed. I can get a tan...eventually.

Wish I could get a tour as a 3rd Battalion heavy these days. I'd totally mold and shape.

the great thing about imperfection seems to be the thriving despite it. your straight whiteness is a fine example. and you didn't look to be struggling with it back then either, mister tough stuff.

At 17 I was 5'10" and weighed a whopping 112 lbs. I did 200 push ups and 500 sit ups EVERY day. I would love to be in that shape again.

Oh, and I will trade you some dark (greying) hair for some of your red, if it meant I did not have to shave every day.

What a cutie - I do remember when you posted that picture. LOL. You look like a slightly shorter version of my son ;-) I say he's 6'5" he swears he's 6'4" and last time I saw him he was about 185...

OTOH - it's damned near impossible to think of you being that much skinnier - my dear you aren't that big now!!! Holy cats - nope, I just can't see it.

Glad to help, Eric!

Now if I could just figure out why MuNu keeps saving my old info in your comment box...

Man... I don't know if you got PT for it, but your barn door was open in that picture... Sgt. Slaughter.

I'm huntin' "He ain't heavy, he's my brother"... I'll get it 'ventually.

Sorry man, for doublin' up on you... But, how many Stones is 200 lbs? I never did understand that stone deal. Is there a conversion chart somewhere I missed?
