I was toying with the idea of making a video of the farm and the family to share via snail mail with some internet friends. Took the camera to some of the local points of interest, got a few shots of some gators and the river and a few orange groves. Jill was the paparazzo for this event so at some point in time, she snatched a few frames of me.

At least I think it was me. I recoginized the clothes, but I guess it wouldn't be that bigga stretch to believe that some 'fluffy' woman that happened to be wearing the exact thing I was, happened to also wander into the viewfinder when I wasn't looking.

Then the fluffy woman spoke and I knew I was fooling myself. I now hate the word profile with a screaming purple passion, because I have irrefutable proof that mine sucks. When exactly did I develope that second chin, and what the he11 happened to my nose? They say the camera adds twenty pounds, I say the camera needs to die.

This is what comes from years of dodging the camera like a bad man dodges the law. Sneaking around, being conveniently located wherever the loaded Kodak is not. This startling, devastating revelation that I am not perpetuallly twenty five and a hundred and sixty pounds even if that's the way I feel. Suffice it to say, if the video ever gets made there will be some serious editing going on. (grin)

When I was in the National Guard, we, of course, had to wear our helmets whenever we went to the field. One of our officers had this big thing about the chin strap being worn where it was supposed to be and not up on the helmet itself.
"But sir," I said. "Which chin am I supposed to wear that strap under?"

We could all go together and offer to buy it from Jake, he wouldn't have to be putting five dollar bills back together (just when ya thought no one was readin the posts). Never put teenagers in charge of things (like videos), they have different priorities than grownups.I always make sure I am behind the camera, never in front. Too much risk involved. "look ya'll guess who this is" at family reunions and company get-togethers. Besides there are too many photo-edit programs out there.

What's on the 8mm is fairly harmless now, considering the fact that I am the only one who knows how to transfer it to VHS! Lol! But I think I will be doing the pointing and aiming anyway. Fred recorded thirty minutes of our woods. I stumbled across it today when I was going through tapes. Thirty minutes of mind numbing trees and dirt, with the putter of the four wheeler added in during the whole thing just for atmosphere. And he's a grown up.

When I was going to school in La.. We had one big heavy guy as a pal in our group.He was real bright bookwise and was a lot of fun..We used to joke about him being heavy now and then as we did one day at school.He pointed to a big old 55 Cadillac and said.Im like that Cadillac,Im built for comfort not for speed.We used to all box after school with gloves.He was a giant compared to me but I could beat him and the rest could not.He knocked the others down as he had weight behind his punch.The others got mad because I could beat BigUn so they snuk a trailer hitch ball in his glove.When he finally connected I went down for the count.
