The Story of My Youth, In Pictures

I could not find the photo that I wanted to post...the one in which I was sitting on the beach in South Texas, surrounded by an outline of the State of Texas, crafted in sand.

But I did find enough photos to tell the story of my youth.

In this one, I was a happy young boy, obviously planning to become a lawyer or corporate CEO. Ah, yes, it was a fine time for a young man full of piss and vinegar, ready to conquer the world!
By the time I had my first grade photo taken at school, though, I had become a sullen young man, defeated by a world that wouldn't give a guy a break, even if he buttoned the top button.

You crack me up.

Me, You, or Ellie said...

Well, look at you! And screw those bastards of the world who don't appreciate a buttoned-up man when they see one.
