Could have been our living room too. One year we had a silverish turquoise Christmas tree!

I may be dating myself, but I remember the aluminum tree with the color wheel that rotated 8-[

We had to have a real tree every year, my parents are from way northern Wisconsin.
I had friends that had the aluminum trees with the color wheel though, and my wife had one while she was growing up.
You can find anything on the internet :)

Fun T-shirt or should I say scary! Is that the same guy who was on the 'truckin' posters? Remember I had one in my room.

Thanks for the comments on my photo. Now what is really interesting (or scary) is that you are looking at (then) an IBM product manager. YES - I lived in the 3 piece suit world. Lucky I wasn't fired...

Here is me roughly the same time, in my office. Notice the boots...

Hey guys, loved looking at all your pics. Thanks for bumping this up Chuck.
Here's one of me (on the left) dressed as a...I don't know what. I think this is about 1979 when we dressed up at school one day. My Brother Phil is in the middle and the guy with the gun is one of our neighbours. I don't think it's loaded.
My avatar pic is my wife and I on our wedding day in 2006. I think she really cheered me up. :-D
