Back when I had hair.....

A high school buddy, David Hale (thanks Hale!), posted this picture today on Facebook, and it gave me a real thrill. I haven't seen it in decades, but I remember this day well. The year was 1973. We'd been working on our school newspaper at the offices of the Clarksville (Va.) Times. Back then, I rode my 1971 Raleigh International everywhere. We were horsing around, as usual, and someone, maybe John Trowbridge? or John Sizemore?, snapped this shot. I think it made it into the yearbook.

I flat out loved that bike. It is the machine that transformed my life.
