This is my wife's favorite photo of me, taken in 1982 when I was 18 years old. It was taken by a very dear friend who is currently losing a long battle with cancer. You can see my finger curled as if to trip a shutter--I was explaining to Sherry how to press the button half-way (on my Pentax MG SLR) to check that the shutter speed would be OK, and she pressed it just a little too far.

And this is my wife's second-favorite--me on my sunroom deck last summer, feeling like the King of Town (we live on a corner lot).

Very nice photos! You look the same as you did when you were 18! So sorry to hear about your friend. She has my prayers.

Men appear to get better looking with age, it seems the same for you:-)

Thank you. And monkey143, thank you for the prayers. Sherry always seemed to me to radiate serenity, and I hope she's still that way as the end comes.

I got a call early this morning from Sherry's sister. Sherry lost her battle at about 5 AM today.
