Alex The Model

While in Korea, granddaughter, Alex did a little clothes modeling and in looking at her pictures, she appears to be pretty good at it – and it’s something she enjoys.

Beverly read about a modeling school in Knoxville that was conducting trials for potential models so they went to check it out. Alex was invited to participate, for a nominal fee of course, and the class met for three hours every Thursday evening for 5 months, where she learned everything from walking to talking. Here are a few of her “head shots.”

Seems like I get this look often.

I assume her braces resulted in her keeping her lips together for all the shots. I know I'm the grandpop, but I think she's becoming a beautiful young lady. She’s convinced she’s going to be a successful model with great fame and riches and can’t understand why she needs to learn stuff in school that she’ll never use. We keep advising that she may need a back up plan just in case. I hope I’m around to see how it turns out.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. You have every reason to be proud, Grandpop! She's got gorgeous eyes. Hope she figures out that smart AND beautiful is a surefire ticket to success. :)

  2. And you should be a very proud Grandpop. She's so pretty. Is she and will be be tall? for some reason I thought she was the blond in one of those photos awhile back.

  3. You have a beautiful granddaughter. Best of luck to her, I hope everything turns out well!

  4. She is a beautiful young lady Larry!! I'm sure you must be so proud of her. Hope everything works out well. :)

  5. Oh my, what a beautiful young lady. I can imagine how proud you are. I wish her well and agree with you at the same time. I'm after my grandkids all the time about getting their education.

  6. She is a beauty, with the dark hair and bright blue eyes. Point out to her that she needs to learn the stuff in school so that she'll be able to count and keep track of all those riches, otherwise her minions could steal it from her! And Grandpop might not be young enough to kick their behinds for her! ;)

  7. What a gorgeous young lady... You have every right to be the proud Grandpop...

  8. Awwwww, despite having your freedom again, you TOTALLY MISS HER!!!!!

    I knew you were a softie, Larry ;)

    Seriously though, she did a great job and don't worry about the braces. When Brett's came off, he resume the full smile within days!

  9. Larry, we knew that she was a pretty young girl and that she was smart too. Photos prove the looks but we have also seen that "special look" that she gave you and all adults from time to time! Big Daddy Dave
