Pictures At Last

July 10, 2010

Tags: photo, skydiving

So my husband finally got around to showing me how to put pictures up on my blog. The price for this tutorial was the stipulation that my first posted photo be of him.

This is what my husband would look like if he were born in another era: a born warrior painting himself blue and charging shield walls. But in these modern times, he has to resort to more outlandish ways of risking his life.

This is the lunatic I married, jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at thirteen thousand feet. Thanks for showing your Luddite wife how to put pictures on her blog, love.
