You know how you form a mental image of the other forum members after reading their posts day after day? Sometimes you do catch a glimpse of others and you think: "Wow, he/she doesn't look anything like I pictured!"

Is it better that we not know what the others look like? Part of the beauty of the Internet is that everyone is equal, no judging people on looks or age, only on what comes out of their brain (in most cases). Would having a mug shot database violate that basic principal of anonymity that makes many want to participate?

Personally I don't care, since I am extremely good looking. Yes, my wife tells me so, so I know it is true. :) Picture below.


Seriously, I'm not gonna be first, but I'll be second or third if someone else is brave enough, or foolish enough.

I hear they say that in a picture, you look like you gain 10 pounds. My camera is not so good. It makes you look like you gained 40... ;)

Here is me and my boy.... just this morning.



And me and my bees....

I'm a man of my word. Hollywood talent scouts take note -- I'm not interested.

My wife and I in Vegas. Couldn't wait to leave!


Just before my first hiving.


I love this pic!

Okay, be honest, how many had the right mental image of members? Not me!!:)
I wasn't even close. I am surprised at the similarities between many of us in general appearance and age.

I notice there's not much participation from the female side yet. I see Sheri, is she the lone she-poster? :)

BjornBee,

I could swear I've seen you before. Weren't you stationed on the Star Ship Enterprise, like down in the engine room with the lithium crystals?

Any relation to James Doohan? :)

Hehe, I was way off with George. I pictured someone twice his size/girth and 10 times the amount of grey hair, maybe a little balding on top. Gee, what is it that our minds use, to come up with these images? Do they key into the written word and mannerisms? Very interesting to say the least.

I'm happy to be able to put a face now with some of you. Dave (Honey House) I saw some years ago when that big boy of his was just a day old. Wow he's grown!

Great idea, Troutsqueezer! It's great to see our beekeeping friends here. :)

I'll play for fun and maybe some other gals will come forward.

Here is one on vacation in Wimberley, Texas, and one withe the bees.

And I with you Barry. I envisioned a short fat guy. Sort of fatherly, stern. Big bushy eyebrows.. with glasses. Wassup with that?

My beard photograph was me getting ready for a halloween party, I went as half man, half woman. Made a good looking woman by all accounts. There's male and female in all of us..

Dee B... er.. Troutsqueezer was the biggest surprise for me. What a nice benevolent, thoughtful looking gentleman.. not at all what I had envisioned!

Bjorn comes as no surprise for some reason. He reminds me of the father of a friend of mine when I was in high school. He scared me then, Bjorn scares me now :)

Nice to see some women showing up here. Come out of the closet! The rest of us are :0
