This popped up today in my phone as this pic was taken exactly one year ago today. My trip to Japan last summer with my precious daughter. I call this pic "Gingers Take On Japan".

Taken at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden in Tokyo. I thought I had died & gone to heaven.

Did you know every Ginger is related to every other Ginger? It was a single gene mutation 5K or 10K years ago. Patti is a Ginger.

That I did not know. And we are not going extinct as many claim.

A few photos of me. Ironically, none of these photos are when we have stayed in a timeshare.

Those sharks were harmless. They are the sardines of French Poly. However, I won’t debate that I am crazy as a loon. Before I learned it was environmentally unsafe, I went on chum dives with sharks. This means they drop a frozen piece of chum in the water to attract hundreds of sharks.

One of my sons is a blue eyed redhead. Said to be extremely rare. His siblings are brunettes and a blond, all with the same eyes.

That's summit of Mount Garibaldi, near home.

Here's a photo of me from a recent timesharing vacation:

That is hysterical - I've never heard of him, and I thought that was your real picture!

I’m laughing because I thought the same thing. :)
I had to Google who James Randi was. I didn’t feel as bad for not knowing after I read the bio but this was funny.
