I received a call this morning. I can't recount this conversation exactly, because I was caught off guard, totally surprised, and well, it was just strange. The voice said something like "Do I need to sign a form for you?" I replied with something intelligent like, "Huh?" The crux of the remainder of the banter is that Jim read my post about hesitance to put up some of the pictures of him because I didn't have his permission, and he was poking fun at me for my caution. Finally I agreed that I don't need his written permission in order to assuage my caution and respect for his privacy. He gave a verbal. I'm off the hook.
As I said before .... men.
So, OK, here it is. This is what Jim looked like in high school. A yearbook picture from a very, very long time ago!
And just for fun, I decided to toss one of me in here, too. Lawdy, weren't we the innocents?
This is the photo he gave me when I was there. Now, this just proves that any man in uniform is delicious! Look at this cutie!
Almost 20 years later, I was taking snapshots at our class reunion. When I saw Jim I said to my husband that he reminded me of a young Frank Sinatra, and Glenn agreed.
Here I am at that reunion with my friend, Gail. We were all pretty good-looking back then, I think.
In 2002 we had our 40th reunion. Jim got this power water gun as some sort of joke, but I don't remember what it was all about. Wanna bet he will fill me in? LOL! Yeah, I think so, too. The reason I actually posted this is to show what a fan of U of A he really is. Look at that tie!
OK, I'm making fun of the tie, but he'd better be glad I didn't post the photo of him lined up with the rest of the reprobates while they were looking at classic cars. He had a dandy sock-tan showing in those sandals and shorts! LOL!
And this is the expression he wore a lot of the time I was in Tucson .... sorta like "I freakin' don't believe what she's saying." He probably had good reason for it. I talked a lot, and I didn't always listen to myself.
I don't have to post my picture here. You know what I look like now.
Finally, here is a photo I swiped from his F*cebook page. It's probably one of his favorites, 'cause .... well, you'll know. It's pretty easy to figure out! Take a gander....
His gift to himself! Pretty good gift!
That's about the fastest progression of (nearly) 50 years you've ever done, isn't it? Whew, me, too!
