This is Jim and I in Orlando Florida about 1995.

This is Jackson on a visit to Glendale, California in 2006.

Jim and his wife Susan on the same trip in 2006 to our home in Glendale.

This is Jim (famous smirk) with Emmett AKA Jay Moran at Jenna's right of the square in Madison 2016.

Jackson with a brew for his dad, I hope, in 2008 at the Brewery in Middleton, Wisconsin.

Jim with that famous Smirk going!
