I'm the dish washer at our house. I was getting a lot of hassle from the rinser/quality control person I'm married to until I put a framed copy of this picture above the sink. Now, when she's criticizing my work I just nod towards this photo!

( I remember when my mother took this photo. I really did do dishes when I was six but this photo was posed. It was uncomfortable on the shins to be working like this.)

1986 or something... I was 7 and forgot to tell my mum there was a class picture taken, hence the uncut hair and an old sweater... my mum nearly got a heart attack when she saw the picture. It took her around 20 years, but now she can laugh about it  Wink

This photo was taken of me at age 3, in 1978.

Note the facial features of my syndrome (Treacher Collins syndrome), before any of my facial reconstructive surgeries. Also, note the silver trach tube.

I always made it a point to "forget" to tell my mother about school pictures - otherwise I would be given a "decent" haircut and be dressed up "nicely" which was usually good for receiving about a weeks worth of bullying  Sad

I vaguely remember taking this photo. This was taken in early 1977 on Lake Michigan at Marquette Beach in Gary, Indiana.
We had a very cold winter that year and the lake iced up, well most of it did.
