    been sitting here thinking about icon pictures....why people put on what they do.
    My my my, there sure are different types.
    I chose the picture I did because I wanted to appear to be someone people would want to talk to, like you were walking down Rue Haussman (where it was taken) and coming across this charming, sophisticated handsome stranger, would feel welcome to sit right down, have an espresso and talk.

    And you.............................

    I figure icon pictures are like a first impression of where the head's at and I don't know when I've seen such a striking difference between two old fogies, a really different life view. A complefely different way to present onself, to make a first impression, to invite others to talk.
    Amazing, just amazing, and sad.

    Don't ever judge me for responsiblity nor lecture me how to get along in the world, you lose the argument as soon as someone looks at that picture.

    So tell us, audience. Try and close off everything else you know about Dave and me and just look at the pictures.

    Which one of us looks like he knows how to get along best in the world?
    Which one looks the most law abiding?
    Which one looks like the one with the spotless criminal record? (there's one there for sure)
    Which one looks most  like he knows all the local deputies from being a volunteer fireman, not from being arrested?
    Which one looks like he may have run a successfull contracting business, never sued once, for a quarter of a century?
    Which one looks like he was a city commissioner in Chico in the 80s??(Architectural Review Board)
    Who would you rather have your kids spend time with?

    Who do you think has the better concept of "responsibility?"
    (thanking you in advance)

    So there you are Dave, we'll just let the audience decide.
    A word to the wise, no I mean Helpful hint: lose the picture if you want to lecture people on responsibility

    Ciao again.
     I'm just here to pick up my teddy bear

    Happy just to be alive

    •  FATHER JACK (0+ / 0-)

      That my pedigree chums is an icon picture of FATHER JACK HACKETT, a character from the hit comedy series FATHER TED.

      Given my predilection for using the Common Vernacular as a form of punctuation, my Catholic upbringing and education, and utter disrespect for all things religious its a highly appropriate icon to adopt.

      You need to be familiar with the series to get the joke.

      By the way - have any of you ever heard the phrase: Don't judge a book by its cover?
