Mini-Tanks are all big, in other words..?

Always wondered, and it may sound rather politically incorrect, but don't the "before" and "after" pictures make you feel... Old?
Sort of. But I have found that I sort of stopped getting older in my head at about 25. Since then my body has got older but I don't feel 'I' have got as old. If that makes any sense.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Hmm.. I suppose it does make sense. With me though, the process hasn't stopped or even slow down. The Asmo is getting all wrinkled and leathery on the inside at an even faster rate than on the outside  :P

Tank, I am the exact same way!  In my head I'm sort of perpetually 23, but the rest of me insists on getting older.  Stupid rest of me!  Get with the program!

Tank and Pudding, your children were beautiful.  And Tank, your daughter as an adult is lovely!

What gorgeous photos! I love the 60s theme! They look like they make a really sharp couple... and the dress is great, too. You must have been so proud.  ;D

I am very proud of her indeed. She has a difficult job. As a medical photographer she has to take photos of still-born babies among other pretty traumatic subject matter. There are 6 medical photographers, 4 male, 2 female and my daughter is the more empathic of the two females and the doctors know this so she does tend to get the short straw quite regularly.

I've never heard of a medical photographer as a profession, but it makes sense that it would exist. Interesting (and good for her!)
"We’ve thought of life by analogy with a journey, with pilgrimage which had a serious purpose at the end, and the THING was to get to that end; success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you’re dead. But, we missed the point the whole way along; It was a musical thing and you were supposed to sing, or dance, while the music was being played.

She designed it herself. It cost £800! And that's not extravagant for a hand-made dress!!

What a week!

DS (7.5) got his 'Pen license' at school.
Got to show off his tornado model in front of the whole school at assembly.
Recently moved up to his rebuilt 24" cyclocross bike at cycling club and is kicking ass on it. Is now representing club at British Schools MTB National Championship (U9 category) in April.
Skipping two belts in Karate for his first grading next week (not sure how big a deal this is, but I'm still proud).

The universe is a cold, uncaring void. The key to happiness isn't a search for meaning, it's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense, and eventually you'll be dead!

I'm a proud dad. My three-year-old uttered the following today:

Aw. If he thinks your house is the end of the rainbow, you're doing something right!  ;D
