    My brother bought a slide trasfer program for his PC and I now have plethora of horrible memories on CD. This is why I turned to rock and roll and music. I'm the guy on the right.

    And that's a good picture too.

    My parent's have grown into wonderful people over the years, but they were absolutely clueless when I was a kid. My uncle was an optician, gave me free glasses, and was too cheap to give me anything but union frames (the ones they give for free) whenever I got a new pair. His excuse was that my eyesight was so bad that the glasses were too thick for any other frames. I'm quite certain he lied. I think my childhood would have been a lot different if I had specs that were somewhat respectable looking.

    I actually even busted them at times in the middle and wore them taped together in the center. :) Ahhhhh... all helped to make me the man I am today!

    Here is one of me sitting on the hood of Dad's
    1956 Buick Century station wagon.

    This car had a back seat so big that, well, ahem ...
    let's not go there. There was more steel in the front
    bumper than there is in a new Toyota.

    Where is the "report this post to a moderator" option? That one is just reprehensible and it's been allowed to last too long already.

    For future reference, it is next to the bass clef icon indicating whether or not a user is online. It is a white exclamation point.

    Edit....I guess it depends on which view you are using. My above idea is if you use the 2 column view. In the other view, it is in the top right corner next to the post number.

  13. or if your using the other format its in the top right corner of the post beside the post number

    I've been looking for a pair of retro frames like that all over here (preferably in tort) and I can't find any :crying: they are l337 specs in my book man! If I had a scanner I'd post my kiddie pix, I was actually a super cute kid...then something went wrong... :rollno:

    A number of people have reported it, I have heard.
    I don;t think it is there long.

    You would help the mod if you don't quote it, as he has to
    then edit your post as well.
