    OK, I'll bite.
    On top of a local mountain, on my sisters horse, and with family and BIL at Thanksgiving 09....
    Oh, and BTW, my idea of a perfect little get together is when Kathleen comes back to RI in the summer, we set a day and I charter a big sailboat......or convince a local with a big one....to take us on a little bay cruise......
    But weather and winds can be fickle, so it's hard to plan!

    Me with my wife, Marsha on our front porch. Taken by a friend during a visit last summer. I've since lost all the facial hair and the (unseen) ponytail I had for ten years. I've also, sadly, lost Marsha. We found out she had cancer in mid-September, and she died on November 21st. That's why I've been so quiet on the forums lately. Rick

    Sorry for your loss Rick, we all know how important our families are! Tough time of the year to go through such a chapter in your life. Hang in there! One day at a time as they say.

    I have a reunion tentatively scheduled for July 9th. I haven't been to the island in too many years, so it's time to come home for a spell.
    A charter would be a blast. I have an old high school pal whose family runs a charter http://www.sakonnetcharters.com/
    Yes of course it was me in my av. I have a pic of me and my little guy hamming it up on my profile. BB I would love to know what you were thinking in that pic. Steve (FBF) you look a little cranky in yours.

    Rick I'm so sorry to hear about your beautiful Marsha. I was wondering where you've been lately. Much love and light to you and your family.

    Rick, noticed you not hanging around. Very sorry for the loss of your wife.
    That's a great pic of the two of you.
    Nice to see you back.

    Rick,
    As someone who has lost more loved ones than most people lose in a lifetime, I have grown to believe that a person is never truly gone until there is no one left to remember them. Well. There are now hundreds of people who have seen Marsha and will remember her for a very long time. I know I will. Thank you for sharing her with us, even if we only know her from a photograph.

    Got to this one late, but here goes. This could be the only pic of me known to man. Well, it's not, but that doesn't sound as mysterious.
    I was working on the pole barn, when a friend of a friend stopped by to chat.
    I guess something must have been funny, 'cause I'm usually not smiling like that (or so says my wife).

    Sincere condolences, Rick. Way to much of this news for me in the last few weeks. I hope that day-by-day, things get better for you and your family.

    God Bless

    Most of the pics of me are of the back of my head, the top of my head cut off, or with my eyes closed. I managed to find this one from 2003.

    Some fun, some headaches and a pretty good income. :lol: IT Director was the job. That pic was taken by a newspaper for an interview when Y2K was looming. You see how scared I was about Y2K. What you can't see on the screen of the laptop says "Will it also be a day that lives in infamy? I dun't tink so Lucy."

    Wanna buy a couple of dozen custom tailored suits that haven't been worn in ten years and a bazillion dollars worth of Allen Edmonds shoes? I was a clothes horse.

    I wear old fart coveralls every day now.
