- Fizzy Thoughts: Photographic memories

Photographic memories

Saturday, April 29, 2006

Okay, it's time to get this show blog on the road, so to speak. I think I spend more time on making my blogs look appealing (to me, at least), than I do writing anything of substance.

With that said...I'm re-writing the original post, which was nothing more than a placeholder. In honor of the new scanner, here's a few childhood photos:

This first pic is me circa 1972 or 1973. The family had just moved to Oregon. I must be surveying the family holdings. Ha ha. Not looking like the happiest of campers, but when you've just moved to BFE, who would? The parents were remodelling the barn and Keith and I had most likely set up his Matchbox cars in the outhouse. This picture is Hamburger's favorite. He says the backpack cracks him up. Glad he likes it, because I don't seem too enamored of it.

This pic, on the otherhand, is my favorite. Maywood, CA. Most likely, right before the big move. Do I look cool, or what? Dig the glasses.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
