No problem on the pic, MB, I figured you'd have to.

Anyway, first pic is me and my son Mason (5) Easter 2006 before we went to church. Second is my wife, Chris, and son, same day. The tree is in our front yard. It is 119" in circumference.

Third pic is me, Mason (6), and two of my three granddaughters. On the left is Hannah (7) and next to her is her sister Jordan (9). The tree is a 7' tree for some perspective

Yeah...i hated cutting all that out...the shot captures a LOT of the tree and Jon and his son are dwarfed beneath it. It's a cool tree. But I figured folks were more interested in seeing Jon and the kinder than the tree...

The picture cut out about four more, I think. There were nine for the people there for Christmas, one for our deceased son, one for the cats and one for the dogs. It is a crowded mantle.

My wife had to take that picture, and unfortunately she is somewhat of a neo-Luddite and does not know how to use the zoom. That is why her picture is closer and a little clearer, I do.

Hey Jon - great pics... nice to get a look at who I've been chatting with since I don't believe I ever met you at MAHS.

Thank you, Lisa (and everyone else). It is amazing that in such a small community we never met, or bumped into each other at least once. I've seen your picture in the '82 yearbook, so I know our time there overlapped some.

Hey, John,
Nice photos of you and your family members!

Was I reading correctly? You have grandchildren older than your 6 year old son? Wow!

So, Mr. Aggie, my hubby is a Longhorn and my hs. junior daughter is considering both A&M and UT.

Do share your views on A&M after having lived around the world. I know they brainwash all Fresmen Aggies with bonding activities, (i'm saying this playfully) and i've met only the nicest folks who also happen to be Aggies.
The size of UT campus is daunting, and it seems run down, and not kept up (or so it did in the student union in summer '05).
We plan to make a visit to College Station this summer and to revisit Austin.

I'll be happy to do that, but it's time to go home for the day.

Yes, you read that correctly, and that's only two of my 5 grandchildren. That story is coming in a later episode of 25. :lol:

There is a preview in the Mr. Franzen's class thread.

all right, then.... i'm going there to read it!

As for Aggieland v. Austin, I think the city of Austin has a lot of variety to offer. Both are great schools. Can't wait to hear your feedback, even though, you know, you will be biased! :wink:

Hey, Jon
Somewhere on the forum, i began reading about your experiences coming to the States from Munich, as prompted by Jojo.

You are a great writer, along with being a gardener, a computer geek, and an engineer/mathmatician! OMG, what a treasure you are! Further, like jojo pointed out, you are a "relationship guy", there are far and few between of those in the country/world!!!! And, I may add, quite of few
of them hang around this forum! P-shaw! :)

:oops: Aw, shucks. If you keep that up, you're gonna embarass me.

That's me, Jack of many trades, master of none; owner of lots of trivial, useless, knowledge. A real Renaissance Faire man.

Unfortunately, I'm only an engineer/mathematician type. I started off college trying be an actual engineer, but then Calculus and I decided to part ways and I did not get the Electrical Engineering degree I started out to get. Instead I got a BS in Political Science with an official minor in History and an unofficial minor in Soviet Studies. I still consider myself a scientist at heart and keep up as much as I can with that stuff. It appears my niece may fulfill my initial career choice of astronomer. At least that's what I wanted to be when I was in Munich, then it dawned on me that I would be working nights, making it difficult for a social life. It never dawned on me that being an astronomer might hamper that, too.

All kidding aside, thank you for the compliments, they are appreciated.

To be a "relationships guy" or not to be a "relationships guy"

I wonder, wouldn´t most people prefer being in a relationship? That is, ofcourse, if you find your soulmate/prince or princess on the white horse/your perfect 10/best friend.
