Carol Teal May 14, 2007

Autum and Joan, thank you so much for your very kind comments! And Joan, that is me (lots of years ago) at age one! This was my pouty look! The photographer kept this for either 6 months or maybe a year and had it in her studio window with a caption that read "Phooey on photographers!" She had made a deal to give my mom the photo if she could use it for that time. It was a big 16 x 20 and probably was quite expensive in those days! I scanned it to use as my mini-pic for awhile; it has always been a favorite portrait of mine (and my mom). She recently gave it to me to enjoy. My son (age 11 now) seems to have a similar pout! :) #4283641
