I enjoyed looking at all the old pics on the other blogs that I decided to post a few of my own.

It is funny how I had this idea of Joe in my head (top pic) for years after I saw this picture until I seen him again when he came to visit the last time. Then to see this big guy with muscles, tatts and a bald head, I was so surprised!!! It was not what I was expecting at all!

He looks so meek and a quiet type of person in this picture, then I met him and he was so forward and friendly with so much personality. I was really just shocked. Now, Berta was just as I pictured her in my head.

I guess it just proves you really can't tell what someone is like just by a photo.

Oh my god! You know if I try hard enough sometimes I forget that I was an overweight teen and just focus on the afteryears when I finally grew a bit taller and then had a figure to die for...and then I had a couple of 10 pound babies and that's the end of that...
Thanks for posting the pictures though, Mom and Dad are here and we all had a good chuckle over them. Have a good weekend!

Les, I guess you must have lost the weight pretty fast, because all of the other pics of you I've seen from your teens you were thin as a rake.

I was doing real good on my diet all week, salads and slim fast, but right now (as I type) I am having coffee and doghnuts from Tim's. Oh well. I eat when I am depressed, so I gave in today. Hopefully tomorrow I will get back up on the horse.

Joe, I am guilty of the skinny clothes stashed in the closet to. I don't keep them for quite as long, but I think I have an entire wardrobe of each size 9 through 20.

Glad you enjoyed the pics guys. Enjoy the weekend!

What does Paul do for a living? Not sure how that came up last night but it did?!? As well as our desperate need for some two-step practise so there we were dancing around my living room with Mom and Dad. LOL!
