Just a photo I like

Whooops. That's "Just a photo i like"

Waves to Wine MS 150. We lived and had fun. We rolled across the Golden Grate Bridge. It was cool!
I thought I posted this already, but I can't find it. So here it is, Tricia on the bridge! We're doing a poster to hang in her 8th grade class.

Bad acid, bad acid, oh I'm having flashbacks! (What was that about?)

I was one of the one million people who got to try to walk across the Golden Gate bridge in 1987. I stood there, motionless, for about three hours because so many people tried to cross at the same time that we all were gridlocked.

If my prostate was the same back then as it is now I would have done something I wouldn't have been proud of.

Nonetheless, good picture.

Nice shot. Should make for a very nice poster.

Is that the Seattle Space Needle on her jacket?

That's the jacket they gave to Seattle-to-Portland riders. It's tat FedX envelope materil. It's relly rather nice.

Thanks for the nice comments.

Great shot! It's good enough for a magazine cover.

If someone knows the requirements for a cover, Curtis would be the one. He used to be a newspaper photo editor if I recall. In addition to be a great photographer he is also a fantastic photo critic with a super quick and always fun and witty analysis.
