Nostalgia.... school days

I number of people have been digging out their old photos and posting some. Many times I have shared some of mine with you, but since I have nothing worth while to post at the moment, I guess I'll just dig into my nostalgic collection....

Some of you may, or may not, know that I'm a navy brat and we were once stationed for 3 years in the Philippines. My dad was captian of a small freighter there which I used to call my "private yacht", as this picture prooves (taken about 1965).



and "The Boatswain" at the helm.....



If you follow the link... my older brother is copying his former JS entries into a site of his own.

We returned to the States in time for me to begin high school. I don't have many pictures of those years, unfortunately. For 3 of the 4 high school years I marched in the banner corp.... the following picture our dear Simon once used in his JS Saga...



and this is my senior class picture.



Hard to believe that was 42 years ago!!

So, enough memories... now it's YOUR turn!

  4. I do of course remember that photo and the terrible use I put it to! But I love the one on the freighter – you really look as if you’re enjoying yourself.

    As for old photos of me, as you may remember, I’ve already done it, but if you want another look, here they are.

  5. I would love full size copies of the Mark pictures. I just hit that portion of the rebuild of the Boatswain's journal and would add them.
