Fridays seem to be the day that I take my self portraits. So far, this is not an enjoyable exercise for me — as you can see by the photos and the quality of them. I decided the only way that I would ever get any better at this is if I share them with you. The bottom one was taken last Friday, 1/8 and the top one was taken a few minutes ago. Today is my oldest granddaughter’s 9th birthday. Someday, she may be glad to have even this dark, crappy photo of me.
