    This is my favorite picture of my youngest.



    I started a photo album for while my kid's dad is in Iraq, but I've been horrible at updating it ever since they started using the webcam. Here is is:

    Lovely photos! Makes me want to start a family album, too. What's the best place?

    I store all of mine on photobucket.com so I can share them easily (plus it's where I host my ebay pictures, so it's just easier to keep it all in one place). I heard flckr.com is a good option, but I haven't looked into it yet.

    Man, I wish digital photography had existed when the kids were small. I'd feel safe posting one of those pictures (scanning them all is on my to-do list), less so posting relatively recent photos. Shh, don't tell them--or if you do, at least tell them I didn't put their names up here, too, just silly nicknames.

    There's a reason why I don't have my kids pics on myspace and why I'm even leery of posting them here, even though I trust you guys.

    There are just too many pervs out there and I'm paranoid as hell when it comes to my kids.

    I felt the same way about that photo journal I made up -- I thought about making it a locked journal, but then I realized that anything with any kind of effort involved stops my ex-husband in his tracks . . . so I had to do something user-friendly for him. Do you think I should be worried??? I'm really naive about things like this.

    Not really, I'm just paranoid. I really don't think anyone is going to go to myspace, see my kids, and actively seek them out.


    Now if my kids had their OWN myspace, that's another story.

    maybe I'm too trusting, but I don't give out a lot of personal info and don't think I have to worry about it. that's just me.

    Okay -- I have to agree with you on that one. I saw a recent news show (20/20? Primetime?) where MySpace was used as a way to lure preditors into a home where they believed young people would be . . . and then they were arrested after an awkward interview. I think, when my kids are older, they'll be steered cleaer of sites such as this one. I had some weirdos contacting me even though I made it clear in my profile that I wasn't interested in hooking up with anyone . . . so, yeah, my kids won't participate.

    I dont have any photos of my former wife other than one and I have only two photos of the two boys I raised, long story.

    This is when we were married and were too dumb and full of... well, never mind. I was stick skinny then.



    this is one of a lady friend who came to my moms funeral, stayed for a few months, got homesick, and went back to North Carolina.

    She was stick skinny and weighed less than 90 pounds.



    Here is my youngest son, peter. This was taken long ago at
    Disney World in Orlando where he was working. He was operating the boats at some kind of jungle trip, or something. He worked there at first in the haunted mansion, but he liked the jungle cruise the best.



    This is my oldest son, Craig with his dog when he was living in Virginia.



    And, this is me taken at least ten years ago, or more at work in the coffee break room by a young lady who worked with me. She caught me by surprise. She and her husband both worked and fished with me and she is a big mischief-maker. Im really not that serious, or mean as I look in the picture.



    This is another one of me at work being foolish.



    this is the mischievous young lady messing with one of the other leaders in my department. This is where I used to hang out.



    This is the gang and I after a fishing party held at a hundred year old Florida mansion on the waterfront. It was owned by the man on the left of the girl who has her arm on my shoulder.



    I forgot to add this. One of the young guys at work drew this up and presented it to me when I retired from the space center.

    Well, they're not really my kids, but they're my kids (the one in the back is my girl, Alexandra). This is a shot of my nieces from a shoot for last year's Christmas card. My wife took the photo. I'd love to share a picture of her, but she's dead set against being photographed I'm sure that if we hadn't paid so much for the wedding photographer, she probably wouldn't have been in any of those pictures either.

    Maryn,

    You might want to consider having your old photos digitally scanned professionally, for you personal use.

    My space is not where I would store my personal photos; it is not safe. I dont even want to go there, at all from what Ive heard.

    Thanks for al the lovely photos; it's nice to put a face to some names - and find out that people you thought ewere female are male, and vice versa!

    Next question: whose name would you like to put a face to? You get to name one person. I vote for: MacAllister! Tired of that squashed gopher....
