i think i've got it!

photos 044 (Small).jpg

Here is a picture of (from left to right) me, my 94 year-old grandmother, my sister-in-law and my brother. I took one of those monster 460 KB pictures and made this one come in at 42.1 KB. HA! I'm not as colossal an idiot as I thought I was.

I used the free MS "Image Resizer" and it worked like a charm. At least I think it did. Don't I have a handsome family? Ain't Mommie pretty?

Over my shoulder in the left side of the picture is a Family Tree, showing some of Mommie's progeny, not including a few great-great grandchildren. I believe there's one great-great-GREAT grandchild, too, although I may be mistaken about that. I'll have to ask Mommie the next time I see her.

She'll know.

(I appreciate everyone who sent me information on how to do this . I chose to follow Hugh's advice, because it was simple enough for me to understand. Thanks, Hugh.)


Ahhh -- what a nice picture! Good job. Amazing what you can do when you when you just follow (simple) instructions, eh? Mommie is a doll -- I have a 93-year-old uncle we could set her up with -- graduate of USC, former engineer @ McDonald-Douglas, but Mommie looks like she could dance circles around him -- he's gotten pretty fragile over the last decade. Thanks for sharing, man!

Great pic! I think you and your brother look a lot a like. Mommie looks a lot younger than 94!

Actually, I think you're better lookin' than your brother, myself....

My Great-Aunt won "Most Beautiful" at the Savannah nursing home a few years back. She's lucky your Mommie wasn't in the competition.

Yep, your Gran looks damn fine, so do the rest of you come to that.
All the best Rob.

Mommie looks to be in her 70's. NOT her 90's!

I knew you could do it!

See? I'm not the only one who thinks Mommie is only 70. Is it just me or do you look like the biggest one in your family?
I'm so glad I got to meet them, they are the kind of family I always wanted.

Most excellent pic! You have a beautiful family and Mommie needs to bottle her anti-aging formula.
