Fandango’s Dog Days of August #4

I think I’m married to my lost love. So I guess he isn’t lost. Garry was never lost. He was just too busy. I had to wait until his career was less important than his emotional life. We married in 1990 — and thirty years later, I’m still glad. Is this story too short?  Is it even a story?

Amazing how time changed us in those seventeen years, isn’t it?

    • Both pictures taken be strangers — which is why we are both in them 🙂 I haven’t gotten it together with timers and tripods. Yet.

      • WE need to get more pics of us together on our photo shoots. Count on the kindness of strangers. Or, we could experiment with the tripod. Once upon a time, I used “sticks” to shoot my stand ups. But that was once upon a time, long, long ago.


        • I’ve been looking for a better set of tripods. The lightweight ones I have are too shaky for my taste. Maybe for a light little camera, but for my bigger cameras with bigger lenses, I’m not sure my equipment wouldn’t wind up crushed on the ground.

          The problem is that the better (bigger, heavier) tripods are expensive and aren’t meant for toting around. They would probably live at home, possibly set up in the dining room aiming at the bird feeders! Mind you, they ARE movable, but not lightweight. Most of the really solid ones weigh 10 to 15 pounds, but at least you know your camera won’t fall off.

    • It’s just so strange to see how much work time has done. We got married in 1990 and between then and 2000, we didn’t really age. Garry grew a beard and my hair got longer, but otherwise, we didn’t look any different. But in the next bunch of years, WOE! That’s aging!

    • Thanks, Sadje. Just looking at the pics brings back memories. Pix#1 — My facial hair period. I liked it for awhile then it became a nuisance. I also was coloring my hair because the TV suits said my salt and pepper hair wasn’t good for my “image”. Stupidly, I caved and started coloring my hair. BIG mistake! I also suspect that was the beginning of the hair “leaving” me. All things considered, I think Marilyn and I still look pretty good – considering all that’s happened to us. And, we are still breathing!

    • Marilyn, I just gave MY version of the pic looks and ensuing changes. I think you are still beautiful and hope I still look good to you. I know we don’t share these things with each other but that’s how I feel, mi amor.
