    Me on the Lamar River in Yellowstone about ten years or so ago. The last ten years have been worse to me than they were to BBart. I'm thirty pounds fatter now and the beard has gone almost totally gray, but the gals still think I'm sexy ('specially my gal). ;-)

    This monster was by far the smallest cuttbow I took that afternoon out of about three dozen. I had that stupid camera around my neck for two weeks and never snapped a single fish pic, too busy catching and landing 'em. My buddy took this one of me and my trophy minnow. Should have kept it and had it mounted to use as a hat pin.

    Thanks, all, for sharing pix.

    Fossil, so quick a time from diagnosis to your loss--and I'm guessing it was a time that was driven by the need for medical care, conversations, adjustments--and then the sudden silence. Marsha looks like a real doll, and the love between you shows in the photo. I join with the others in expressing my condolences on your loss. There comes a time when the joy of memories outweighs the pain of bereavement--but it's a long journey. Be patient with yourself, and be good to yourself . . . I'm sure she'd want that for you.

    Fossil, sorry to hear of your loss.

    What's with all the 10 year old pictures with technology of today? We put Kodak out of business because of digital and that's the earliest photos. Lost my hard drive twice so no old pictures for me ...boy I starting to miss Kodak film...and Kodachrome too...as the song goes.


    Fossil, Very sorry for your lost, words are hard to express for your lost of your sole mate...take care.

    So the ski bunny myth is confirmed then! :)

    Btw, no dice on your bro. I guess being "out on the island", he's isolated from the "mainland" MOPAR world. 8-/ My bud Pete usually knows everyone and all the details of thier car.

    Btw, a hearth.com gathering needn't be an extravagant event. Gather at one members place, Kick in a few bucks each, order some pizzas, some soda, adult beverages etc. Just a thought.

    Well... there are a few group shots of large family gatherings but I never do well posing for them and usually end up with my eyes closed or else I look like I just got done burying the bodies of my victims.

    Here is a more recent candid photo.
