Someone noticed the change in my avatar from the mule pics to a photo of me in the '70s. I have been reluctant to post a real pic because of some of the very personal stories I've shared both as articles and in comments. However, I finally joined FaceBook to connect with a few nieces and nephews and was found by a long lost ex-sister-in-law whom I dearly love. After they posted pics from the past I realized the Mule was out of the barn and my anonymity was lost.
So now you know how I looked in my youth. I'll be damned if I will post a recent picture. You can imagine the lines and creases for yourself. Or think of me as I was. Or you can remember me as the Mule because that's really who I am, stubborn, blunt and honest.
Be kind in your comments.
