Since I don't know how to insert photos, you can see one here, which is my author profile at my publisher, Savas-Beatie, LLC:

http://www.savasbeatie.com/authors/ericwittenberg.htm

I had also inserted a link to my blog, with a couple of photos of me taken in February. Fodder76 was kind enough to include one of them below before I changed the link in this post. That photo was taken at General J.E.B. Stuart's grave at Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA on the commemoration of General Stuart's birthday on February 9. I was being introduced to make a few remarks.

The first one is of me standing at J.E.B. Stuart's grave in Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond on the commemoration of General Stuart's birthday on February 9. I was about to give a few remarks. The second photo is of me giving the keynote address at the luncheon of the Stuart-Mosby Historical Society that same day.

Here are me and the Mrs. with the USS Midway in the background...



Here we are at Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument...



Here I am, reading my ACG, in Bryce Canyon National Park...



Here I am as a Southpark character...

Here I am preparing to raid, sack, and pillage with the swivel gun:



And here I am considering a potential dress uniform jacket for the S. Inc. Imperial Navy.

Hey Paul!
Hang in there.
It sounds like you are describing me and my honorary twin, Rodney.
Would you like to be our triplet?


My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too.
