Happy Half-Nekkid Thursday!!!

Well, it's HNT again, and this week I promise no cute baby!

Actually, this time it's a beautiful 4 inch vertical scar on my abdomen...my "Alien" scar! Yep, thats where the little critter burst out of me and did the "hokey cokey" on the operating table before scuttering off to cause havoc on the spaceship.

OK, the real story isn't so silly and a bit gruesome - it is a scar I aquired as a very tiny baby (about 2 months old) from a condition quite common in boys called Pyloric Stenosis. Are you still with me because this might gross you out...

With this condition the muscular tissue in the stomach does not allow food to pass downward. The result of course is a very sick baby who throws up a lot and gets rather malnourished.

Fortunately, once diagnosed, it's a simple procedure to sort out leaving a minute scar on the abdomen and in no time I was piling on the pounds. Of course, as you grow, so the scar tissue stretches, and you end up with a monster like that across your tummy! C'est la vie!

Anyway, as an aside you can marvel at my navel hair and somewhat out of shape gut as well...I contemplated leaving the nipples in shot, but thought what was here was quite enough for one HNT post - got to save some of that flesh back for another day!

Enjoy (if that's the right word!)

My First Half-Nekkid Thursday!

This was my first effort at Half-Nekkid Thursday which was originally posted on my former blog which has since been removed from the web by the hosts, Myblogsite. Thats sounds wrong I know! The whole of Myblogsite was removed, not just MY blog!

Anyway, before that happened I tried to backup my blog for my personal records, and to an extent succeeded. However, some posts somehow got mislaid, and this was one of them - therefore I no longer have the accompanying text to go with the photo. In fact the only thing remaining is the tag-line "Please be gentle with me!" as I was obviously worried about the reaction I'd get from other bloggers! Fortunately feedback has always been favourable!

I think the photo pretty much speaks for itself. It was a regular bathtime with my daughter Audrey, and my wife took the photo. As you can see, I'm having more fun with her bath toys than she is!

All HNT posts after this one have been lovingly recreated here on my Blogger account from the original Myblogsite. The only thing sadly missing from all of them are the comments left by other people. I could have added them to the text, but it would have been a labour of love for me, so decided not to do it.

Happy Half-Nekkid Thursday! I hope you enjoy them!
