Okay all I got bored and dug through some of my photo albums. I didn't have much to write about till I found this picture of me. I'm an alcoholic and have been sober close to 16 years now. I just found this picture hilarious as it was from 1975. I was drinking heavily then. I worked at a bar. That's where this was taken. It was called "Sunny's" here in Minneapolis MN USA. Anyhow I've posted it as well on my photos on my home page if you want to check it out there instead of enlarging it here. Look at all that hair. How about the facial growth? Oh my gawwwd. I was a hippy then too. Thanks and have a great day. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!

LOL - I remember when all the guys looked like that! I was 17 in 1975 - still at school, and doing my A-Levels (for entry into Uni). That photo brought back loads of memories though - thanks for sharing!

Isn't it amazing how we change - both physically, mentally, and spiritually? Looking at some of the pictures of myself way-back-when just about freaks me out. The hair, my Goodness, the HAIR!! What was I thinking? MAybe I'll post a pic, but it won't be today! LOL I am not the same person I was 20 years ago, nor would I want to be. But traveling down memory lane is a lesson in styles, way of life, and hair-do's!

~~wolf whistle~~ Ah, the 70's fashion era! I was 3 in 1975 and as I look back on it, 70's fashion has come full circle. LOL. I love the long hair! Congrats on the 16 years of sobriety! That is such an accomplishment. This picture reminds me of my dad! He was pretty much had the same look as you in that picture and he has been sober for 32 years. LOL on the facial growth!

Hehe. Good pic. I cleaned my nieces room last night. She has a purse that I got her at a yard sale last summer. As soon as I bought it for her, she took a picture of me & my boyfriend out of my purse & put it in hers. No one is allowed to touch her picture. Last night, while cleaning her room, I found the purse & the pic is still in it. Shes had it over a year now. I left ther purse on top of her toy box. She came in this morning & seen her purse on top instead of on the bed were she leaves it. She threw her doll & teddy bear down & started screaming "My picture! Its mine! Mine!" I had to show her that it was still in the purse so she would stop screaming at me over it. Okay, that was off topic. But anyways, its funny how a picture can bring back memmorys. Thanks for posting this one! I found one of my mom from the late 70's. She looked so funny back then. I never knew she use to be really skinny. She now wears a size 12 in jeans but apparently she use to wear a size 4. She had long thick hair & was really pretty. I was suprised at the picture.

What I know that the man is worshiper of the past! The olden and golden days are so good that one would always wish to have all back, at any cost. Sometimes these are so much inspiring that .... no more comments. Just to say that the age does't a matter, the things matter are only "The Recollections of those times when sparkes were there!" So cool so good the young age was! All the best and have a good day Grandpa!

You really did look different back then, but then you were younger too. It's always neat to go back and look at old albums. I have pictures of me wearing the old bib top overalls. Real farmer I looked like. Congrats on 16 sober years. That is a real accomplishment.
