Celebrating with my Savior, my Son, my Grand-Puppies (Happy, Bubba & Jake). All these were shot, as reflections, from my closet mirror, so please excuse the, less than sparkling clean, mirror surface....sigh.....

They're great! Your expressions, the homely setting and the quality of the light makes the photos really interesting to me. :)

Also, I just realized you're born the same year as my father. :D

Too bad I was too lazy to clean the mirrors before I started shooting......
Living alone, my housekeeping habits are not very deeply entrenched........

Thank You ,my dear Andi!

I love your confession! 
If I didn't exercise as much as I do, I'd probably "tip the scales" around 400lbs, as much as I enjoy food!!!
As for the bandana, I was a biker for many years, but finally decided I had run out of luck staying alive on two wheels, so I retired the bike but not the bandana. Now the bandana serves another purpose: it hides my ever growing "bald spot" on my forehead....(((grin/grimace)))

I'm thrilled that you care enough to look over my postings on PB. I respect your opinion greatly, because you're so truthful about how you feel & think, as a general rule! I hope you enjoy!!!

Glad my new "mental image" you have now is appealing instead of horrifying!!!

Cheers!

ps. thanks for "liking" & saving my images, as well!

Wow!!! What nice compliments, my friend! I don't know about how "perfect" the images are, but I was just feeling pretty frisky & joyous, upon arising to find out I'm still on the "right side of the dirt".....A fun way to start the day, nevertheless....As for my Mom's opinion of her  Mother's Day "present", I'd say it was a "mixed bag", at best (grin)
