LOL....to everyone and their great comments. I should have mine posted by tomorrow morning according to the customer service rep I spoke with today. This is a great looking bunch of misfits lol, and Bish...very cool photo! How can I top a photo with penguins in the background? Show off LOL!!

Again, I apologize for the delay in posting mine.

 

 

 

Perhaps Bish is raising an army....

 

 

 

 

Well, given our budget cuts, the Falklands need all the support they can get Wink

 

 

 

LOL Bish...it's a sad day when you have to arm the local penguin militia

 

 

 

 

Not when they are trained by the SBS it ain't Wink

 

 

 

Touche Sir, touche.

 

It's funny you mentioned the SBS. I just got done ready a book on the history of the SBS (Special Boat Servies) and it was very informing and well written. I was surprised that it was formed in 1940 during WWII. I was under the impression that it was formed in the early 1960's. 

 

Thye original SBS was a part of the Army. That was disbanded in 1946 and the title taken over by the Royal Marines.

This shot was taken around 12 years ago. I still look the same save for about another 35 pounds. No worries though....been on a diet now for the last 2 months and lost 16 pounds. Slowly headed back to looking like guy in the photo here with my dad in Iraq......

Bish, I love your photo on the Falkands. The only thing better would be if you went down there on a Vulcan!

That is interesting to know Bish. In the book I read it made no mention of that.

Great photo Bruce...great looking family! My wife and I took our 2 daughters and their husbands there back in April of this year and had a great time. Did you get the express line package? My wife went online before we left and found a great deal on that package and boy was it worth it. I rode the Transformer ride 8 times lol.

 OK BARON....WHERE'S YOUR PHOTO??? 

NO NEED TO SHOUT.

I'm not posting a photo of myself.  I just thought it was amusing that you started the thread, suggesting everyone post a photo, but you haven't posted one yourself.

Baron,

I don't believe I was shouting...and as far as amusing that my photo was attached at the time the original post was submitted....I had my photo attached, but after I hit the submit button it came off so I had to work on getting to stay. It wasn't like I was trying to deceive follow members to post their's and then I wasn't. I encountered a minor technical issue to resolve. I believe you are the only one annoyed by this, and if so.....

Most recent. A couple months back, I got my "high performance" endorsement. The owner/instructor keeps this plane at the airport I part time at. We flew down to Coldwater MI and back....I just had to pay for fuel and buy him lunch! "Propblast Cafe"...taxi right on up to it!

Funny thing...my very first commission build was this very airplane...almost 20 years ago. Ray, the owner, still has it on his desk!

Don't know why you guy's have trouble with hair ...... ( I use Miracle Grow...)

 

 

 

So do I!

 Miracle grow? I just don't get mine cut! (believe it or not...my wife manages a hair salon...free or not...I don't want no haircut!)

This is about the only recent pic I have, that ya can see the mop.

This is last seasons "dumb luck buck". I came up over a small hill on the edge of my yard, to look out into the woods before heading in to my stand. He was all of about 15' away, down the other side of the hill. He went far enough, that it was much easier to go back home, then down to my folks place and go get him with the canoe.
