More Vegas pics
My brother Brad and sister-in-law Tracy. They've been married since 1985. Through thick and thin. Made more impressive by the fact that I'm sure it's not easy being married to him.
My 21-year-old nephew Nick, who placed 6th in the World Team Trials.
I decided, since I'm losing weight and feeling kinda buff, that we should take our picture by the pool with our shirts off. Mano a mano. Because in my mind I think I look like I'm 35.
Bad idea. He looks like a Greek god and I look like Barney Fife. (He said I should've taken my picture next to Brad instead, which is true.) But Nick will be old too someday, and if he's very, very lucky he will look like me.
While we're showing skin, this is what I looked like at Freestyle Nationals in Vegas 30 years ago.
I just gotta work on the abs a bit.
Last but not least, this is my mom and dad. They are the best parents in the world.
I taught them everything they know about raising difficult children. They taught me everything I know about unconditional love.
They got me through the weekend in one piece. I am grateful.
