All I can say when I really see myself in an image is, “Hi Grandpa Stroud.”

I guess we all take after someone in the family and not always your parents & we really have no idea what we look like from a distance and how we look to others as they see us…

Typical Tiny Russian Village attire and yes this is that American living in Russia…

A major reason that my brain connects to grandpa is that he died very old and my dad died very young and so connection with a dad who looks younger than I do is harder to accept than one of my grandpa….who by the way, I look a bunch like him, built like him and grumpy like him…

My dad was a much smaller man than I am and Grandpa Stroud again is where I get my build from…

But regardless, as Svetochka sneaks these pictures of me, and I grumble about it….all I can say is…

Hi Grandpa Stroud!
