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".
