My beautiful wife and me, about four years ago. Soon to celebrate our 28th anniversary.





Here's the "BEFORE" picture - my birthday, about five years ago -- note the watermelon instead of a cake! The kids are now all teenagers and I'm about 140 lbs less than this picture!



I have 9 pics in my gallery

Wow, if I'd known you were from Pittsburgh!!! We were there a week in 2011, took a city double-decker bus tour, had lunch at PRIMATI Brothers and Wholy Fish Market (not sure either is spelled right) and stayed at a Corps of Engineers park just west of the city. I will take you up on your offer someday -- our families live in Michigan and our daughter & SIL live in Massachusetts, so we are often by that way! Spark on!!!
