Per Too Old's (Bob) request...

Mine is a running gag with my sister in law and her husband that I used on facebook!!!

My back in the day cycle days .. Actually a photo from Trike magazine of a Cool Corvair powered trike.

It was one of the first photos I had that was about the right size without anymore work ...

I chose mine because I kinda see myself as Flapjack... he's kind of foolish in some ways, but pretty smart and a little ahead of the curve in others..... he's also my favorite cartoon character...

My avatar is the rear fender of a 63 Mercury S-55 Breezeway, belonging to Raymond K. Rodgers, my step-dad. I have done all the wrench-work on it since 2007, when I moved back to the hometown. I took tne photo.

Let me be the first to say it's a self-portrait. :D Now that that's out of the way, I just thought it would be a little different and fun. I use it as my login picture on my computer at work, too.

Mine is of my favorite actor in perhaps his most known role...as Robert B. Parker's Spenser of Spenser For Hire. I had to recreate his first season '65 Ford Mustang in plastic.

And, his third season '65 Ford Mustang.

It has been reported that Warner Home Video is considering releasing SFH on DVD.

I took mine from the cover of a book about size acceptance, it's also a subtle nod to my favorite area of study, a big round woman.

I was bored one day, so I borrowed the "no avatar" image, and had some fun with it in my PrintMaster program. Just a mash up of various images from Google. Plus it expresses my desire to not take life too seriously.

EDIT: Scratch that! Changed it again!

Now it's GW rockin' the Challenger! I bet he would have approved.
