I recently reconnected with an old grade school friend and we've had a great time catching up on things. She sent along some cool photos so I thought I'd put them up here with some others I had kicking around.
My eight grade class photo. I'm the guy in the back with the chick magnet mushroom hair and paperthin Ted Nugent concert T-Shirt from the Free-For-All tour. I know, you're all so jealous. That teacher on the right actually threw an eraser at me for uttering the rhetorical question during lit class "Didn't Edgar Allen Poe do opium?". Good times.
This is actually a post card one can purchase in any gift shop in Highland Falls, NY. The buses are carrying the US Embassy workers held hostage in Iran. This was a defining moment in my political developement. I knew at that moment that the only effective way for our country to preserve and protect our way of life was from a position of strength. It was the day I became a "Hawk". Me and my buddies are high on the hill holding a flag/peace sign.
