Time....

.... I've spent the last couple days of My Great Sickness going through some old family albums, reading, writing, and thinking......

... and at the end of the day?.... well, not much has come out of it except that I now realize that I was a complete redhead from day number one....... hey, I'm a 1972 model - and my little brother is a 77 model....... so, that makes me 6 years old in this winter picture..... and that makes my little brother about 1 and a half.....

.... oh, my how the times have changed....... it's quite sad at times, I guess........ but it is still nice to look back on gentler times, and see me holding his hand and smiling..........

..... photos, folks....... snapshots of life can make you happy, and blow your mind at the same time......... in a snapshot, we are forever frozen as We Were.......

.... but the Lens of Time shows us many different things........

....... I love old photographs, really....... they are full of What Might Have Been...... and I love to look at that Idea and wonder........

... and tonight?...... well, I wonder what the hell he was looking at while I smiled at the camera......

I saw another gem from the Olden Days on Facebook... there was a familiar carrot-top, in military trim, drink in hand, sporting a white dinner jacket... there're plenty of people who would bust a blood vessel if they realized that Tennessee Jed is really James frickin' Bond...

Like many of us Elisson he is a chameleon, blending into whatever setting you place him. P tell people that just because I am fluent in redneck doesn't mean it is my only language.

.... thank you, Elisson & Rey...... really, I often wonder what folks think of me...... and I thank you both for your observations....... I'm just a guy, though..... you're average straight, white guy........

..... but I appreciate you both giving me your perceptions........ I always find that very, very interesting......
