Hehe. Thank you, I think. As I recall, no one but my parents thought I was cute at the time, and by the time I hit the age of twelve, they were ready to revise their opinion.

A very cute kid. I had those glasses when I was 12, too, btw. My brother broke them when he threw a rock at me. He was trying to miss (we were playing war). :-)

Look at the intelligence and the fun in that face--what a thrill it would be to have that face in my classroom.

School -- well, learning -- was the light and soul of my life in those years. The good teachers I had, and there were a number of them, made an incredible difference to me.

Hah! I'd know those eyes anywhere.

I have plenty of pictures of myself, and way younger than that, but no way to scan and post them. You'll just have to drop by and see them for yourself.

Really, the only thing that's changed is the beard. And the hair's a little longer and "highlighted".
And your taste in fashion has changed.

I had exactly that haircut and glasses when I was twelve (before my originally dead straight hair decided to do its going curly thing).

I think it's safe to say that I never had a jumper (sorry, pullover) that colour...
