2. Or MFM is Walt Whitman, and he's just not telling us.

Guy is FIMFM after all.

4. It occurs to me that I have never seen either of them...

...in the same place at the same time so maybe a case could be made for a secret identity at the very least!

In all seriousness this colorized version of Teddy Roosevelt bears a remarkable resemblance to one of my therapists and I look forward to showing it to him.

14. Wow, well hey there pretty girl!

Wow, Howdy Miss H! It has been a loooong while since we chatted,(too long imho), it is great to see you back in the DU. How are things in my favorite country? How have you been? Me, I was doing just fine until I saw your name here. So now I am all wistful and wishing I could somehow magically transport back to Germany. Are you still shooting photos?

13. I love these. I hate that they stopped colorizing old movies. I once saw "It's a Wonderful Life"

in color. I assume is was removed from the market, because I have never seen it available since all the protest
against colorizing. I have never been able to watch that movie in black and white - now that I know how much more enjoyable it was in color and I could see all the details that I missed in black and white.
