I guess it's my turn, eh? Gonna test out a new photo hosting thing with this thread, I'll see
if it works and for how long.
This thread reminds me of envisioning what a radio DJ might look like and how shocking it
is when you finally see a pic of him/her.
I'm Chris, been working on old Ford cars since the mid-late 1970s (I'm right around Stosh's
age). This is my first truck (1981 F350 4x4) that I bought 3 yrs ago originally to use as a
utility vehicle (to haul firewood) more than anything but it's turned into something of a
project for me. I enjoy it, it gets my mind off of office politics and techno-geek stuff.
OK, pix - let's see how well this works...
The first three are from birthday party games several years ago, I don't dress like this in my
EDIT: Because I have gotten so many comments about the bra, I will copy-n-paste my
explanation from another, later thread in which I explained more:

and so I've generally just remained quiet despite all the ribbing I've gotten for that thing.
The topic has come up again so I'll explain a bit here....
That pic was taken at a birthday party in Kondopoga, Russia in 2002. If you know
anything about Russians, you know they like to drink alcohol. (I, BTW, don't drink, but
let's just say they were all more than a bit tipsy.)
In any event, one of the games we played was similar to what we know in the U.S. as
Musical Chairs - everybody has to perform some action until the music stops, at which
point everybody must perform some different action, and one person WILL lose. The
"loser" had to reach into a brown, paper bag and grab an (unseen) article of clothing to
put on; when I lost, I ended up pulling the bra, and, of course, there needed to be
pictures of such an event, right?
I made it my avatar on the suggestion of one of the site's Super Moderators (actually,
horsepuller, now an FTE Administrator) because, well, hey, nobody else has got one like
it + I'm comfortable enough in my own sexual identity to not be worried about what
others may think + this place is for fun & recreation away from The Real World, so, why
Besides, can't you see that one strap is missing?
The following two are from ski outings to Keystone me & my bro took a few years ago.
The mountain towns of Dillon & Silverthorne are in the valley below, the second pic is us
outside a mountain lodge (I'm on the left):
The last two are me assembling my truck's engine in my garage during last summer's
