i am sixty.

6 0

this auspicious event happened
on 5-5-18.


 thanks to 
the magic of photo shop,
i was able to take about
10 years off the face that
I've earned by living
twenty one thousand,
nine hundred days.

the reason i feel compelled to
share these pictures with you all
is because the day of my
birthday our family
was at our cabin and there
were a few photos taken during the day
but i'm the one usually taking the
pictures and right before i was
going to go to bed i said to adria
"i am pretty sure there isn't a
single picture of me that i'm going to
like from today, will you take a couple?"

she said sure and then proceeded to take
about 246 all of which we both looked at
and said "NOPE...that was bad", tried again,
said "NOPE", tried again and this was what i was left with.

you guys, i get it! it's hard to have your
picture taken... but after a lot of hilarious
laughter and taking off hoodies, adding hats,
taking off hats, fluffing my hair, trying
new faces i'd never tried before, 
then more laughter about how
ridiculous it was all becoming,
here is what i left in the collection.

thanks for taking one for the team Ad
and manning my camera for what 
turned out to be a few shots
that after all that effort,
  i'm going to share with 
the whole darn world.
