  1. this picture has always fascinated me because it's pretty much impossible to tell his age without any knowledge of the particular holmes production. just shows you how malnourishment has a lasting impact on your body. because when you look at sydney, you can tell that the few years during which he enjoyed a comparatively normal childhood with regular provisions of food gave his body more energy to bulk out in all the right proportions. in contrast, charlie's proportions remained forever that of a child.

    1. I agree. Charlie looks like he's 8-years-old here, but he's really closer to 14.

  2. I clicked publish and then it prompted me to select profile. I did this and then got tranferred to the sign in google page. I clicked done. I did not go back and select publish Again....so I lost my rather longish post I guess. I don't see it pending.
