This photo was taken when Jim was in the Navy back in the mid 70's. I saw it and felt it was an almost perfect 'Jim' shot.

He's smiling, feeling a little happy that someone wants to take his picture, even playing it up a little for the camera. That was a Jim thing to do.

I can just look at this pic and hear his chuckle, hear his voice saying 'I'm ready' and then he puts his arms behind his head - that was also a Jim thing to do when he was laying down. The grin is nice, but the laughter that you see in the eyes - even though they are closed - Yep that's Jim.

Dear Betsy, Great picture of Jim! Maybe he's smiling because he sees you in his future? Wait till you see pictures of him you haven't seen before. They're always treats!

GD, I think that was what I was trying to say - I hadn't seen this pic before, one of his kids brought it to me - yet it was a perfect jim moment.
And a treat!
