UNDER THE INFLUENCE

The following is the result of  six months of intense army training.
Don't underestimate the influence of our military.

I don't know about you, but I feel safer knowing he's defending our country.

SIBLING TIME IS HAPPY TIME?

I don't get together with my brother and sister too often, mostly because up until recently, we all lived in different states.  Now that my sister lives near my brother in Pennsylvania, I am practically giddy about getting to have my photo taken with them more often.  Giddy, that's what I am. Is it obvious that I am the middle child?  Didn't think so.

I can't stand boring, posed pictures, so I suggested the cheek shot.  
My brother has never followed directions.  He is a chef after all.

Then there was the shot where everybody was supposed to move around and land someplace different--kind of like a Chinese fire drill.  That did not go all that well either.  Notice my brother maintained his position--as did all the guys.

Then the brother got downright goofy on us.

So, why not?  I'm a good sport.

Perhaps Patty is a better sport.  Indeed.

Eventually, we got a shot that we all looked somewhat normal.  
Somewhat being the operative word.
