The Way We Were, or I was…

This is a picture taken in 1978 or 1979.  The young woman is the daughter of a guy who was helping build the sailboat two friends of ours would later sail around the world.  We were all helping them move from a house to  a condo on this day – and later they would move to the boat. The shirt is from the first motorcycle riding group I ever formed. As president of the local teacher’s union, I formed the “Thunder Chickens,”  a loosely organized group of teachers that enjoyed rides once in a while – place and time placed in the union newsletter I wrote. The shirt was designed by a former student of mine whose parents’ rode with me, and we were “sponsored” to a small degree by a principal who also owned a small Honda dealership in Redmond at the time. Memories!

    Taken in 1978. Casey was actually the wife of Dean Ross, not his daughter.
    I came across this photo when cleaning out a bunch of old pics and it made me laugh so much I had to send it. No doubt the T shirt, not the hair was the real deal.

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.
