I hate, loathe, despise and Greatly Dislike having my picture taken. I have shied away from the camera for years; since the early 90s.
My dear friend from SHS, Mary, was in town from Idaho and we met up with her, her mom Frannie and Marsha, for lunch and drinks at Taverna, in Sandwich. Frannie and Russell have known each other a long time and she loves him very much....loves getting her Bear hugs.
Here's a pic of Frannie and Russell.
I've known Mary since we were kids. This was taken on July 4th, 1979, of Marybeth, Sue, Mary and Me. She had just ended her 7th grade year and me, my 9th. Yes, go ahead and say it, I had big boobs at that age. lol Oh come on you know you were thinking it. ;-D
Here's Mary and Frannie outside Taverna. Aren't they adorable?
Mary took one of me and Russell. It's the first and only one of us that exists. I didn't like it and was kinda bummed out about it. I untagged myself and agonized for days. My friends, and my honey, were perplexed as to my attitude about it. So out of love and respect for him, I am posting it here for you to see, and I made it my profile pic on Facebook. Marsha said it's our official engagement picture. We definitely are as happy as we look, and everyone thinks we make a really cute couple. I think so too. Enjoy this photo because you won't see another one with me in it for a looooooooong time.
Mary also took this adorable picture of Russell. Isn't he the cutest thing?
