HA!

and the kicker is, I gave my son the same middle name. it's a family thing, I suppose. my grandfather and uncle on my mom's side were both named Ernest. none of us like(d) it. mom died about a month before Sam was born, so it's a bit of a tribute to her.

momma's boy. heh.
 
The importance of being Ernest ...
Hemingway.
I too think, this is not the worst middle name one can have - this could make a new thread.

But hooch, you don't look very happy in that pic. What did they do to you? Or were you just hungover?

I think all I need is some big Swifty Lazar (or Mat Gleason) glasses to qualify for that pomo hipster site:

Of course the patchy beard wasn't ironic 25 years ago.

...a bit like a hairy jared leto!
I think I'm a bit like a hairy version of a lot of guys. The face is a little generic. I should get some implants in my face. Then I could so totally be on that pomo site. For reals.

You know what I got for Christmas? Oh, it was a banner fucking year at the old Bender family. I got a carton of cigarettes. The old man grabbed me and said, "Hey, smoke up Johnny." Alright? So go home and cry to your Daddy. Don't cry here, okay?

Thank you, Johannes! I was a little shy to like this post but when I don't feel so hot, I read it! :)
So, I do like it!

This gallery would in no way be complete without Yours Truly, so here he is:

The poor guy was in the army in those days*, this is his photo from the military record book.
*hence the somber look (and the costume), but he was cheerful and fond of humo(u)r even then; trust me, I knew him well

P.S. The picture was taken in April of 1987.

I think you posted that one waaaay back in the thread. But it reminds me that I was going to post another 1987 pic if I have one here...
