Ok ok, here I am at work. I look far better than I did a year and a half ago.

 

 

 

Steve,

 

I was able to see some of your photos during your procedure, and sir you look like a million bucks compared to then. It's oustanding to see you so healthy.

 

Yeah, you look a hundred and one percent better than the hospital photo you posted months ago. Yes

 The wife and I took a ride back in '96.  He took us to the top of one of the falls dropping into the ocean. He sat there for a minute or two letting us look at the falls and then did a peel-off going down the side of the falls. All I saw was the large handle on the door I was leaning against with words to the effect "Don't lean on the handle". My wife was leaning against me helping to push me against the door. When we landed, thank goodness, the guy in the office told us the pilot was ex-Nam and did that to everyone. I cancelled the  trip we were to take the next day to another island.

Wayne,  I suspect the facebook link is the cause of the Photo distortion issue.

The size is easy to fix. When adding the link use 640 as the first "dimension" entry.  That will give you a photo that just fits.No other data needed.  Alternately, click on your photo and you will see white squares at each corner and side.   Click and drag one of the corner squares to make the photo smaller.

As you see I adjusted your photo in the added quote to a smaller size by the dragging method.

    That open door policy is a bit exciting when they bank the chopper but you can get great pictures as long as you don't drop the camera.

Hey, feel free to add some shots of PH.

I know this thread is a couple of months old, but I came across a photo I took back in 2017 so what the heck.  For those with a weak constitution, this is your cue to avert your eyes.

I rarely take selfies, but when I do I usually am doing something stupid/silly.  This pic was taken on our annual company retreat.  That year we were staying in Kona and were headed out for a snokeling cruise - with lots of rock-n-roll music, hot dogs and burgers on board!  That's why I'm grinning like an idiot.  Today, 2 years and 25 lbs later, I have to dial the tasty stuff back - a lot.
