Been there. Done it. Cute . . . to our family. No, I am not posting it. Facebook already allows people to post pictures of you taken by others without your permission, flattering or not. A long term friendship was severely tested when one of my wife's best friends posted 20 year old pictures of she and my wife that my wife 1) didn't remember having taken, and 2) did not find any way flattering towards her. Ouch!

I have been recently having old movies redone. Some of them are from 1948, when I was 10 years old. It's fun and not that expensive anymore.

Mostly guys willing to humiliate themselves.

" ugly babies grow into funny looking people."

In the old days at Children's Hospital we would get what we called "FLK" Syndrome. That was" Funny Looking Kid syndrome." It was before sophisticated genomic analysis. A lot of those FLK kids turned out to have genetic syndromes. One day, we learned our diagnostic prowess was less than we thought when the parents came to see their kid. The kid looked just like them.

Father-son with bottle ... yes.

Naked with hardhat ... a world of NO.

I'm surprised the recreations with adults wearing short trousers didn't some kind of a "smiley" treatment by our proprietress :-)
