The legal giants

Just in case you were curious about these legal giants I've been talking about lately, I thought I'd post a couple of photos to clear up the matter.  For perspective, Beve is 6'7" tall, weighs about 240 lbs, give or take a pound or two.  In this photo of the three stooges, no footstools have been used.  This really is their size.  Beve looks downright puny standing between his brothers, the Finn on his right, the PE teacher on his left. (He's also the youngest and best looking... at least in my mind. I'm pretty sure the wives of the other two would disagree with me about the best looking part!)

Also a photo of Grampie and two of his sons on Thanksgiving.  Grampie used to be 6'8" but now his hamstrings have tightened, his back has bent, and he looks like a walking S.  He's almost 86, though, so I suppose he has the right to be a little worse for wear, making him a mere 6'3 or 4", the scrawny little thing!

By the way, when I call them legal giants, it's not because any of them have or aspire to have a law degree.  It's because there is actually a heighth at which a person is considered a giant, and that heighth is 6'6 1/2".  Beve just sneaked in, but the big brothers are plenty large enough to be called giants--by more than just me!

Anyway, these are the men who have been populating my life for the last...25 years.  No wonder I have bulging discs in my neck. As you can see in this third picture, I'm the short one, short and chubby, sadly. Short and old.  Short and...well, you get the idea.  I do love knowing that God doesn't measure by one's external looks, but the size of one's heart.

Who knows what J's looking at, he hates--HATES--getting his picture taken, so it could be he's looking for a getaway!
