Pictures of me, me, metaken by folks other than Philip Greenspun
Left: Posing like a Japanese tourist with the first turbine-powered aircraft that I ever flew, revealing that yes there are people dumb enough to wear a black T-shirt in the Miami sun.
Right: With cousin Olivia on the ramp at the Hyannis airport.
The photo on the left is me getting out of a Robinson R22 helicopter after a sightseeing flight with Jean from the Frederick, Maryland airport out towards Harper's Ferry and up the Potomac River to West Virginia. On the right is me holding a 4-month-old Samoyed puppy named, rather unfortunately, "Sammy". About five months later Sammy had driven his host family insane and I had to rescue him from Norfolk and find him a home with a friend here in Boston. In this photo we're on the ramp at the Norfolk, VA airport and I'm standing in front of my old Diamond Star DA40, a great airplane that took me from Boston to Alaska to Mexico and back to Boston.
The old days of computer science graduate school. Alex is seen here helping me through the rough spots. [Photo: Rob Silvers]
This photo results in occasional email from gay men saying "right on; it is good to see someone who is so comfortable being out." Paul, however, is happily married to our old friend Miriam and I'm a regular blood donor at Boston Children's Hospital. So it doesn't seem likely that we will be availing ourselves of the gay marriage possibilities here in the People's Republic of Massachusetts.
George inspired me to write Travels with Samantha, which begins with his end.

Here are some 1990s photos of my dad's mother and mom's father (with Alex):
