30 July 1979
A lifetime ago -- it seems. I found this photo of me in the bazillion photos I inherited. I remember well the whole jaunt. The photo has the date written on the back in Deborah's hand. She's (justifiably) proud of always writing the important facts on the reverse of photographs. Years ago, seeing the boxes of old photos in thrift shops, I felt badly that the people/places/dates were unknown. The photographs, which are invaluable social artifacts, were left to fox and fade. I bought some, but only a small number. I have one of a couple (1930?) standing on a piece of wood at the shore so, the picture snapper having snapped as a wave came in, it looks like they are floating. And one of the "Eastland" capsized in a harbor. And one of a surfer at Waikiki with Diamond Head in the background.
