A poster also told me that if you want to upload it from your own PC, you can go to "preview" and there is an "additional options" toward the bottom left.  Click on that and you can upload it from your own PC.  It does have a size limitation.  I had to crop out part of our picture before I quit getting error messages.

I have been apprehensive about this since I am older than the average poster and not photogenic, but here is one I like:  It is a picture of the Mrs. & I taken at restaurant a few years ago.

I don't think I've ever seen a couple both wearing Megadeth shirts outside a concert situation.

Those might as well be ICP shirts, 'cause only clowns like radio metal.

If you didn't know, I believe it is a reference to Insane Clown Posse. Now, for knowing that, I am must go play Hank Williams on repeat for awhile, to cleanse my brain.

I meant the "radio metal" part. Most rock fans, and rock radio in general, aren't exactly beating down Dave Mustaine's door and asking him to serenade them.

Very true.  I didn't get that one at all.  The Mrs. pointed out where Dave Mustaine has some Biblical references in his lyrics here and there.  We are not metal heads.  We enjoy quite a variety of music.  We just happened to go see them a few months before that picture was taken.

Now that Aposphet has Isa's picture as his avatar, it looks like Isa's posting twice... sorry, just my impression.  :P

That's okay.  Aposphet changes his avatar quite frequently.  :)  He and Poppy have got the widest variety....and one can never assume they can recognize either one strictly by their avatar!

Honestly, 40s?  That's incredible.  You look much much much younger than that.
