Here's the original photo, from the South Florida Sun Fun Guide. Okay, so there's no senior lady in it, but it's the best picture I could find. Thanks for your great guesses, everyone. That was fun!

nnnnnnnnnHere's Robert re-creating the photo at Holland Park this afternoon.
Here's the original photo, from a retirement community in Australia. I don't know how the Australian photo was done, but I took the picture of Robert. How do you think I did it?

And here's the original photo. The book goes from Marlo's childhood through shortly after her father's death in 1991, when she took over as the National Outreach Director for St. Jude Children's Hospital. It was a funny and touching book, and I'm glad I read it.

Here's Robert with Joey re-creating a "speaking" photo. The only one who said "woof woof" was Robert.
Here's the original photo. We really don't mind that Joey doesn't speak - we love him just the way he is. We just don't understand it. Have we totally lost our knack for dog training? Or is Joey just a dog of few words?

Here I am with Robert re-creating the photo from the article. Obviously, dressing alike is a big plus for exercising couples.

And here's the original photo. In the words of the beautiful hymn, I just want to say, "How Great Thou Art!" Happy Father's Day tomorrow to all the fathers out there. Joey will make Robert a Father's Day card, and we'll have a quiet day here.

Here's Robert re-creating a photo re-creating a phone call from DirecTV. You can tell he's re-creating it because when he's really talking to DirecTV he doesn't look this happy.
And here's the original photo. Yes, DirecTV has been calling. And calling. First, they offered us $5 off per month to stay with them. Then one month free. Then Starz and Showtime free. Then two months free. Then three months free! The next day they offered us $30 off for six months. Then yesterday they offered us $300 cash! It's just surreal. Personally, I'd be fine with just an antenna, but Robert really enjoys the golf and football channels, so we had to choose. Maybe we're stupid, but we're going to try Comcast.

And here's the original photo. I have to admit they've got a good marketing angle - who likes to clean the toilet? Still, I'd like to keep my independence as long as I can, so I hope I can stay right here at home for a good long time, toilet cleaning and all.

Here we are at TY Park re-creating the photo from the article. Call me silly, but as soon as I saw it I thought the caption should be: "This tree won't budge!"

Here we are re-rereating ...
And here's the original photo. It used to be right here, on a Canadian health and wellness directory. I have no idea why they replaced it. Did someone "try this at home," hurt themselves, and sue them? Was the website not getting enough business with this picture so they chose another? I guess we'll never know. Anyway, that's the story. The photo may be gone, but it will live on in the chicken blog.

Here I am re-creating the photo from the article. I'm being careful not to work too hard in case I might lose a pound.
This is the original photo. Okay, here's the catch. The overweight seniors lived longer, but the study also found that those with sedentary lifestyles had shorter lifespans no matter what their weight. In fact, lack of exercise doubled the risk of death for women and increased it by 25% for men. Okay, fine! I get it! Robert is already getting in better shape thanks to his Silver Sneakers membership at the YMCA, and from now on I'm going to try to get more exercise, too. After my snack, of course!
P.S. So far so good on the lantana.

Here we are re-creating a photo with the new yellow lantana we bought to replace the marigold that used to be in the pot. What happened to the marigold, you ask? Well, it wasn't that we didn't water it. We did. Unfortunately, so did Joey.
Here's the original photo. We're hoping the new lantana has a different aroma from the marigold so Joey will decide - as Robert keeps encouraging him to by yelling, "Not there! On the fence!" - to lift his leg elsewhere. We'll see what happens.
