You were rocking a white suit?

It was more or less an experiment. I wanted to see if it could work.

The second pic worked. Very impressed with the angle, the drink, the brow raise.  You look like one of the characters from the Godfather, I just can't put my finger on him

Ladies, please try to avoid falling into the sin of self-abuse because here comes the latest upload of photos from yours truly, JamesR. Now, LBK and Kelly, you lovely young ladies can calm down and relax.

Smoking a cigar.

That's a great compliment, but alas, I can't do female-kind--even after what it did to me via my mother and girls in school--such a grave injustice of not allowing at least one of them to have me.

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Huh? What's wrong with black ties? Lack of a jacket and rolled up sleeves while wearing a tie and while not being a journalist from the 40's seems a bit wrong but nothing wrong with tie.

Black ties aren't bad. Plain black neckties are. They're boring and unconventional. Otherwise you can't really go wrong with neckties but plain black is just wrong. Black neckties with stripes or dots are just fine.

Perhaps, but that's not too big a sin.

Come on, *exhales cigar smoke in your face*, you have to admit, despite how much you hate me, that I look pretty good in a black necktie.

My mother won't buy me a formal jacket. She thinks it's a waste of money since I never go anywhere formal apart from Church. It took me a couple months to finally convince her to get me a tie,  which I'm actually quite thankful for. She picked it btw, not me.

Ah, I see. But then again, last week I bought two dinner suits and a jacket on the market for under $10. Clothes needn't be expensive.

Jackets doesn't need to be formal. You could go to anywhere in an informal jacket.

Second hand? Not that there would be anything wrong with it. Most of my clothes are second hand.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Ooooh, take it off, baby, take it all off.

I see my bit of exposed chest hair from my tank top has driven you wild, or was it my lifeless gaze into the abyss?

Definitely the latter.  I'm a bit of a necrophiliac.

I find that it turns women off when you have them take a cold shower before Lovie time? 
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

For the love of all that is Holy, can you PLEASE learn to make you pictures smaller?
Bad enough you are spamming us, but they don't need to be poster size for us to note hat you haven't grown up since yesterday.
All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.

Me psaltifying the Epistle.

That's great. So traditional and byzantine.


My newest pictures from Serbia:





Two las ones had been taken just before I've seen (and even taken blessing and talked with a bit) Serbian patriarch, so it was really important and great day for me, especially that until that time I'd seen lots of various bishops and Church heads, but not mine ;)

It's so nice to get a chance to put a face on some of you!

Dominika, you seem very put-together and I'm glad you enjoyed a blessed visit with your patriarch.

Liza, you look just like your avatar! ;) Really what a cheerful picture.

It's like see Vikings raiding land for treasures, except it's children on an ice cream truck  ;D

LOL!  It's the sunglasses!  I didn't even notice!

I special "order" the icecream truck on the final day of VBS, each year.  The company owner and drivers are all American Veterans.

Reading during matins this morning. Awesome acoustics in this tiny side church. This congregation's first church that probably holds 30 people. They have a new one that is much larger. I like this one more though. No tv's, screens, or microphones. Just books and acoustics.
