I decided that I would post a few pictures of my self just because I can. I suppose that it's possible that there could be a reader, or two, who might care to see them, but I don't know. After all, it's MY blog, I can post whatever I want.
This was taken while I was Chair of the Faculty at Western. I always liked wearing a coat and tie for classroom teaching and meetings, probably because that's what my father did. Back "in the day" it was considered "proper" dress for a professional person. I guess I never outgrew it....
I put this in just because I like wearing my Apple polo shirt. I don't think I ever wore it to work (I didn't think I should advertise for, or against, stuff on the job), but I've liked Apple stuff of all sorts since the late 1970's. My collection of Apple coffee mugs numbers thirteen pieces -- all different!
I'm at the Biltmore House in this one. Bonnie and I have been passholders there for a number of years and have enjoyed visiting the house and grounds a lot at all different times of the year. I included this because I'm wearing my leather Mickey "bomber" jacket (it was Christmastime and cold). Once upon a time there were Disney stores in malls which actually had stuff for adults and I got this many years ago when my daughters (who were little kids at the time) insisted that I should. I admit, I've never regretted it and I still wear it.
I just got this tee shirt the other day at the zoo here in Omaha. AS some know, I'm a "cat person" so the appeal is partially due to the tiger in the picture. On the other hand, I've always suspected that I was never viewed as a "happy" person as I didn't make a big deal out of always smiling at people, so I thought the message was reasonably appropriate.
This was taken in the old shop next to the Niggli on my birthday a good many years ago. As I remember it, my wife, Bonnie, showed up with the cupcakes, but I was surprised by Sarah, Ren, Joe and Scott (as I remember it) which accounts for the hat and mask. I keep it around to keep me from getting too serious.
Just personal comments about things which interest me (and might interest others).
