(being safley behind the wire )..now ,i see he was right ..all misery being relative...sorry ,i dont know how to do the pic thing ...and i aint worth looking at anyway...now ,if i could i post a pic of my sweatheart from that era ...beth (she was definately worth a gander ) ....,her dad was commander of entire sixth fleet... a very large and pugnacious rear admiral and a corsair pilot ,back in the day ...2.5 kills ww2 ...im sure he woulda killed me too cept it would have ruined a long and distinguished military career...wonder were she is today ...hmmm .im gonna google for the admiral ,gotta be somethin on him....

    By 2012 you will be cringing at having to show that I almost guarantee you, far too much hair for a start... The leaning over to one side and antagonistic look probably doesn't help here either.

    Is it just me, or has that picture been Photoshopped? One of the layer functions perhaps?
