I swear!
The first time I read the thread title, I thought it said "Breasts and their owners, Show Yourself!" Shocked

Did a doubletake on that!

Anyway, here be I, in my favorite "hero shot":

Yes, that's a penguin on an iceberg in the background. Very Happy

(Former) "pride and joy" is in the avatar.

Alas, no, but still one of my favorites. I used to work on scientific research ships, and this particular shot was from a little "outing" from the ship, on a Zodiac (inflatable motorboat), in Prydz Bay, Antartica. We were "chasing" penguins, which are fantastic swimmers -- like little torpedos, they are! It was as cool as you can imagine, no pun intended. Cool

Now I sit in front of a computer and make up my own worlds through simulations of environmental processes. Still fun, but the adventure is left with the ships.

It's an ultra sub-compact and a little slow but it gets great gas mileage!

Not a great pic but the only one with me and the bus together. I'm the one sitting inside the slider. I'll let you guess which one.

Which one? That big ol' white horse is Ru the wonder dog. A big teddybear of massive Akita. Not a mean bone in her. She belongs to a friend not in the pic.

I just realized I haven't had a current photo of me and my bus for quite awhile. Or a current photo of me at all! At least not VW related, on my computer. Here's me a couple of years ago with my BN4 torn apart, the long hair has since been cut so I can be presentable enough for a "real" job:
