This picture was taken after my mother's birthday dinner in 2002, and it's one of my favorite pictures of myself! In fact, I used a cropped version of this as my default LJ picture for a long time.
One of her sons, George, who's gay, told me this morning that someone asked him who I was, and he didn't recognize me. She asked if I was with the group, and he said "I don't think so, but I wish he was!" Good thing his boyfriend didn't hear him hitting on me... :-) But that's OK, the boyfriend's a fan of single malt scotch, and we're going to sample some later.
