Happy Birthday, Robert


(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

It’s hard to believe that this cute little boy is 44 years old today.  He looks like a little angel in this photo, but the photographer really had to work to get this photo.  Bobby didn’t want to have anything to do with picture-taking.  But the photographer made a loop of scotch tape and put it between Bobby’s hands.  When Bobby got distracted trying to get his hands apart, the photographer squeezed a squeaky toy causing Bob to look up.  The result was this, one of my favorite pictures of my little boy.

Speaking of hard to believe, it’s hard to believe I’m old enough to have a son that old.

    What a great shot and what a clever photographer!! It is hard for many of us to look at our children’s photos and believe they are as old as they are!! All four of mine are in their mid 40s now and I keep wondering how they got that old??? Did I miss something?? Have a great weekend, George!
