The Most Wonderful Husband on the Planet...

... got me a Nikon D40 SLR kit for my birthday. So I took a picture of him. Isn't he handsome?



I took lots of pictures of this cute kid at the park







and at the farmer's market parking lot...


until he got a bit bored with all my picture taking....



I finally let someone else have the camera, but just for a second.


I promise I'll TRY not to bore you with my pictures of everything that moves and or doesn't move within a mile radius of whereever my butt happens to be planted.

Oooh Happy Birthday! Aren't you a good looking group. I'm all for the lots and lots of pictures. Bring em on!

(also, could you please ask JH where to get those sunglasses. I would've killed for those when I was a kid)

Thanks girls! They are a good looking bunch, except for the old broad with them. Is she the grandma? ;) Charley's grandfather used to say, if you complained about looking fat or old in a picture "Well, the camera only takes what it sees!"
And Lola - the glasses were purchased yesterday at the pharmacy after I FINALLY got my prescription filled! Happy Birthday to me!

Tracey Robinson said...

Oh well, fuck, I missed your birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Loved the pictures. Has anyone ever said dh bears a resemblance to Tim Conway? (I think that's who I'm thinking of)

And I LOVED J-H's teen angst/bored with my parents face.

Tracey - how in the world would you know it was my birthday? I try hard not to advertise that I'm getting a year older, until, you know, after the fact because I got a kick-ass camera for my birthday.

Thank you for the birthday wish, though!

And, I have to say: Tim Conway?! Really? I'm going to have to try really hard not to think of him as Dorf every time we're having sex. Or maybe it'll open a whole new door to that particular side of our life together!

Tracey Robinson said...

LMAO! Yes, Dorf. I wasn't sure so I went and googled him, and yes, that's who I was thinking of.

Not meant as an insult. I mean Tim Conway in his younger years.

C'mon, doesn't anyone else see it? Anyone? Anyone?

ambernator said...

Awesome pics!!!!:)I can't wait to see you guys:)

PureLight said...

Yep, I see Tim Conway in his twinkly eyes and the little smile that signals he's about to crack up over the antics of Carol Burnett (anniemcq) and Harvey Korman (Joe-Henry). It's nice to see the faces behind the posts!

anniemcq said...

You all are too funny.

I think I'll have to take another pic, though, because in real life he looks NOTHING like Tim Conway. Although he is one of the funniest people I've ever met. I am clearly the straight man in this group!

English Garden said...

Annie, you look so pretty.

Lolabola said...

oh yes I do see Tim Conway. but there's a glint in the eye that can help you forget that.

Franklin5 said...

I have to admit, the resemblance has never struck me before... but in that picture, something about the shape of his eyes and the rakish eyebrows does suggest a bit o' Tim Conway.

But having sex with Dorf? OWOWOW, my sides hurt from the laughter.

It's always dangerous, that declaration that begins, "You know, you look JUST like... " Even if you think it's a compliment of the highest degree, the recipient may well be miffed.

That's why I've restrained myself from telling you that you're a dead ringer for Toni Collette.

Oops.

anniemcq said...

Toni Collette?! Really? That's SO much better than Leah Thompson, which I used to get a lot, when I was younger and skinnier.

I like Toni Collette! I'm gonna put it on my resume. "Could play Toni Collette's older, chubbier sister."

Love you, Franklin.

Happy Birthday! That is a fabulous picture of you.
