“But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I’m getting older too”

–Landslide, Stevie Nicks

I was consolidating and cataloging some digital photos and came across this.
Today … Mike just turned 21, and Rip’s almost 8.
Bulldog puppies don’t get that characteristic jaw until they mature. When they’re this age they look pretty much like other puppies.

A more grownup picture of Mike and Ripley is on his masthead, here
Uh, the masthead, not the lampshades.

    GREAT photo — and doesn’t that Stevie Nicks song make more and more sense as the years go by!

    WHERE does the time go??? If we had all the time we wanted … how would we be spending it? And if we could freeze moments in time … what would be the moments you froze?

    GOOD Shot!! What a smile!

    We seem to be in a bit of nostalgia, I love it though! No wonder I am falling in love with Ripley, it is that baby face!!! I love the lampshades!!!
