Monday Photo Shoot: 2003

John Scalzi's assignment for this week:

"You may or may not know that today marks the fourth anniversary of By The Way, which was started on this date in 2003 (here's the first entry). To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to have a historical-themed Photo Shoot:

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Find a picture from 2003 and post it. Any picture is fine; it just has to be from the now-oh-so-distant year of two thousand aught-three. Surely you have pictures from then? Yes?"

As I was looking through my 2003 picture folder in "my documents", I found several that would be fun.  But this one is special for a couple of reasons.

My friend Lona, who hasn't had the most enjoyable time of her life in the past year or so, had a gathering of Internet friends down near the Sam Walton area of Arkansas.  It was a great time, with people there from as far away as Scotland.

Among pictures from that "reunion", I found this one of me and Cliff.  He was at least seventy pounds heavier than he is now, and I weighed at least twenty-five pounds more than at present.  Neither of us had any idea that quadruple bybass (CABG) would change our lives, three years later.

Got a 2003 photo to share?  If so, be sure and leave a link to your photoshoot entry over at "By The Way".

Congrats on your 4  years!  What a difference they do make.  If I look back at mine, I'm at least 20 lbs lighter...'On Ya' - ma

Wow.  It's funny how I see how much skinnier Dad is now, but I don't realize just how big he was then.

Even though you are both heavier, I think you both look great in the picture. You have such a nice smile!

WOW, you both have changed.    You are not only thinner but healthier and happier.  Now that Cliff, he is just the "bomb"    but don't let it go to his head! Anne
