Loving all these pix and seeing you boardies! 

Quill, is this cat a Maine Coon? It's gorgeous!!!

She is actually just a “mut” backyard-born kitty, but has that type of look. Her brother, Thor, died last year. He was a beautiful black long-haired cat with a big, heavy build. This is not a great picture of him and he was already sick, but I don’t have a better one on this ipad.

Cool! You are all so photogenic!  I am NOT! Lol. I will try sharing my most recent sea glass picture to see if I can actually figure this out...

I don't take selfies so I don't have any on my phone, but we went on a field trip yesterday to a windmill farm near our house and this is the view from the bottom of the 260 ft windmill

Eta loving seeing all of your pictures!!! And to clarify,I don't take selfies because I'm not photogenic, not because I have something against selfies. You all are beautiful! :)

Momto5inIN, your avatar is super cute.  You're more photogenic than you think.  The windmill is cool too!

It worked! Now I can post pics from my hair cuts when I come on here to vent that they cut it too short! ?

Oh my gosh, you look so young!  I know you have older kids, but you look like you're about 26, if that.  I'm tempted to ask what you use on your skin, down there in the dry country!

Doesn’t she? I want to accuse her of using a filter or photoshopping herself, but clearly that’s just a gorgeous, natural close up.

My kid, telling his 1991 car goodbye. We got it when he was a baby, he learned to drive in it and had it through college, and just sold it yesterday to a 17 year old who looked super happy to have wheels.

And not to leave out his twin brother,  whose graduation I couldn't attend (because I obviously can't be in two places at once). But my dh was there,  and I watched it on live streaming.

Judging from your youthful skin, which clearly everyone agrees with, I would say you attended your brother’s commencement! 

Congratulations, Kinsa boys!

Here is a good pic to test with... I asked ds (6) to unload what he could from the dishwasher for the first time and instead of leaving what he couldn't reach IN the dishwasher, he stacked them neatly in the middle of the kitchen floor! I was not expecting that when I came speeding around the corner into the kitchen 20 minutes later! ?

I've never posted pictures before, so I'll give this a try.

This is my youngest and me yesterday morning just before marching in the parade.

eta: It worked!

Edited again. Wow! It's a huge picture on the computer!

Learned something new. I wrote the reason for the edit/removal of the picture in the "reason for edit" box, but it didn't show up in my post. I wonder what the purpose of the box is. Anyway, I removed the picture because I thought I'd removed location identifying info, but it was still visible.

Karen you look beautiful. 

Quill, I love the dress and shoes. 

Garga for some reason I'm not seeing your photos. 

Here's what a Falcon 9 launch looks like from my front yard, when we're too lazy to drive a couple of miles for a closer view.

He is on me whenever I'm down and following me whenever I'm up. For some reason, he likes walking on my chest when I'm laying on my back. I think he just likes to do anything to get just that little bit more height. ?

I'm loving all these pictures of you all, your kiddos, and your pets. I'm going to try and add more. I don't take selfies and don't have many of me. 

I'm not sure how many it will let me put in one post so I apologize in advance if I spam the thread. 

Here's my young man, who will turn 21 in September.

Next is Cookie who we think is probably getting close to 2 years old. 

Third is my best girl, Crookshanks. She'll be 10 in June. We brought her home from the shelter when she was 4 months old. Ds named her and was later sorry. Princess or Her Royal Highness would be a better fit. She loves to help me crochet. Her other hobbies include sleeping on laps and changing the font size on my Kindle.

Same here. Also, when I do try to take one my eyes look weird because I'm looking at the phone to make sure I press the right button, or else I'm looking up to try and make it look like I'm not actually looking at my phone. LOL. Clearly I haven't learned how to take a selfie properly. ?

Wow, what a good looking bunch you all are!  I won't ruin the glamour of our online community by posting my saggy, baggy self (also, no selfies here to post), but here's my test-of-the-system -- younger dd ready for prom.  We found a pattern from the 1970s for wrap pants; she drew a fake tattoo on her sternum

FINALLY destroying the walls in our temporary home to open up the cramped, dark dining room and let light flow through.  It was SUCH a change.  And the demolition not only completely changed the flow in the living spaces, it also satisfied my soul to destroy so much wallpaper.

I absolutely love the randomness of the photos on this thread! So fun. Neat to see all of the gorgeous kids and pets. And grandkids - I'd move closer to those two, too. 

And I love the 70's prom pants - they're beautiful!

We renovated this house when we first moved in (that handsome young man upthread was 2-1/2). There is something cathartic about kicking down a wall. Even better if you get to destroy wallpaper.

I also don't tend to take photos of myself, mainly because I have no phone, I'll see what I've got - 

A, here I am visiting my mom, my peach tree last year, and my kids at Burns nighthaggis.thumb.JPG.a8841ff1a5ba722cef4d007891bd9890.JPG:

I love this thread and I'm wondering why I didn't wander in here sooner!?   Garga, I missed all your photos ?

 

Let me see what I can find.  I also don't take many selfies... I'm not too photogentic. 

 

Here's my youngest two at Pascha just before we left for church.   Then my youngest grandson wrapped in one of my handwoven blankets
