Wouldn't be surprised if he does have a long mustache and beard quivering.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Ok... i guess i will admit guilt here. I pm'd him too.

Nope, I bet he looks exactly like I have described.

Well, you asked for it , so don't blame me if these photos cause your PC screens to implode.

I honestly do not have many photos of myself, so I've dug through my archives and come up with a few taken over the years. The first two are from 1994, when someone took a couple photos of me when I was in Stanley Park. When I lived in the West End of Vancouver, I used to spend hours in Stanley Park, working with the squirrels. It was quite amazing what could be done; I taught some to go in my pockets, one rubbed noses, one sat on my shoulder as I walked around...it was quite an experience.

Next photos are of me with dogs, my neighbour Anne's. The first was taken 5 years ago by her son Daniel who was then living with her prior to his marriage; he had two retrievers, Moxie (sitting) and Mogul. Mogul absolutely loved me, he was an amazing dog. Both are gone now, Moxie was 8 and Mogul 10; health issues took them. We were under the tree in my front yard for that photo.

Next up is Anne's present dog Ricco, a black standard poodle, who stays with me when she is away. This photo was taken a year ago when we were out on one of the Equestrian trails during the winter. The last photo is Ricco sitting in "his" seat when he is in my car, and he's wearing my cap on this occasion.

Thanks for posting the pictures Byron. You are a very handsome man so stop teasing that you might break the PC's and such. Looks like you have had some very unique experiences with the squirrels. Had one jumped on my shoulder, I would have likely messed myself and run screaming from the park.

On the equestrian trails... Do you ride or just hike through on foot? You do look much like I would have thought though for some reason, I thought you might be a little older. Looks like you enjoy dogs, why none of your own? Just curious, you don't need to answer that if you don't wish. Thanks again for posting.

I am 60, almost 61 in another month, and those photos go back a few years. The one with Ricco is last year I think.

I hike the trails. I encounter horses now and then--and bears and deer too. Cougar are about but I have not seen one. Came across a pair of deer one day, resting under an old roof in a clearing, photo attached.

I'd like a dog, but it is a commitment--in money more than time. Several of my friends have gone through health problems with their dogs that have cost thousands of dollars. Can't afford that, the fish are bad enough.

I have squirrels around the neighbourhood, but they are more shy of people than they were in the park. There is a gray one that in the summer when my study doors are open to the back garden will come in and sit up on the desk beside me, and a black one comes to the door and I can feed him too. I have a couple photos of the gray one on the desk, not very good photos because of the light, but one's attached.

Byron.
