Out with the Old…

My computer wallpaper gets changed fairly often. I get tired of looking at the same old thing. The same can’t be said of my profile photo over there on the right. I kinda figured for the sake of consistency and “brand recognition” I wouldn’t change it, although that technique has been fraught with peril.

My wife and daughter don’t like the sunglasses look, although I do. Maybe it’s the pilot in me.

One of my fellow parishioners at church says I look like an alien.

Another of our friends says I must be having a midlife crisis. No, that’s not it, although I might be having a midlife monetary crisis with one kid in college and another soon to be there.

But anyway, I’ve succumbed to peer pressure.


It’s out with the old:



And in with the new:



Hope you like it. It might be there for a while.

I don't know, dude, I kinda like the "alien" look. But, whatever . . . :)

Scott - thought the shades gave you a bit of the hidden look, revealed only through your writings.
Peace,

Nice. I like the non-whitewashed new look.

I love your sun glasses! Especially your aviators. It is nice to see your eyes in the new picture, though. I like it.

It's the old honest farmer's tan look. It reminds me of my dad. It's pretty cool.

It is good right and safe to listen to the fairer gender in ones family.

Great picture Scott. Now could you post a recent picture of yourself? Not one when taken when you were 30 years old?

I was hoping nobody would notice!

I have to say your old photo gives you that Charleton Heston Look,

Maybe I should try parting Puget Sound, or better yet, the lake that is currently my back yard!

I've tried my grandson's wading pool the only time it worked is when I did a belly flop into it
