"Turn that frown upside down!"

Within minutes of me posting about my cheesecake fiasco, I got an e-mail from a friend of ours that put an almost permanent grin on my face.

Bernard wrote to say (and I quote):

"You have to be more cheerful about these minor setbacks.

See attached.

By the way, I just topped 305. Too much snacking on small Christmas candies - curses."

Now, I just had a feeling that he was up to something.
Probably based a whole lot on the name of said attachment.
The file name was "MeAsScot.jpg".

'nuff said, take a look:

That's good stuff right there!! Thanks Bernard!

Although I bought Photoshop with great intentions, too bad I never learned how to use it!

I actually did this with Paintshop Pro. It's not as full featured as Photoshop, but a lot cheaper.

If I had Photoshop, you probably wouldn't see the seams!

That is great!!

I want that on my meter for real!

You know, his face that pops up like that when my blood sugar is real high or real low!

Maybe a picture of my wife or kids when I'm right on target, etc.

Yeah, that would be sweet...

OMG Bernard I am going to pee my pants!!!!!!!

AHHH his expression (George's) is perfect!!

Scott you have to use that picture on the heading of your blog or something LMAO!!!

What would we call this meter? The G-Force?

(Ahahah I can't stop laughing and my coworkers are asking me what is so funny!)

I originally meant that you should take the glucometer and put it where George's face is in his picture (the hat kills me lol) but this is way better. :D
