The resolution size was horrific. This attachment should work much better.
Kerry sez: Didn’t improve anything very much. We all still look old.
Leroy sez: Sorry, Kerry, my Photoshop will only do so much 🙂
BUT I DID FIND SOME OLD VIDEOS OF KERRY IN ACTION!
GoFundMe Page for Dan Archie
From: Ron Webster <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Leroy, in looking at some of the recent photos in the Farsider, I see that Dan Archie apparently has only one shirt to wear to functions. I suggest we start a Go Fund Me page to raise sufficient monies for a new wardrobe and ball cap. I’ll consider adding even more if he’ll give me the keys to that red TR-3 he used to drive back in the 1970’s.

My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn’t seem to get food poisoning.My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter and I used to eat it raw sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in ice pack coolers, but I can’t remember getting ecoli.
Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the river instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell, and a pager was the school PA system.
We all took gym, not PE…and risked permanent injury with a pair of high top Ked’s (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can’t recall any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now.
Flunking gym was not an option… even for stupid kids! I guess PE must be much harder than gym.Speaking of school, we all said prayers and sang the national anthem, and staying in detention after school caught all sorts of negative attention.
We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system we had then. Remember school nurses? Ours wore a hat and everything.I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before I was allowed to be proud of myself.I just can’t recall how bored we were without computers, Play Station, Nintendo, X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations.Oh yeah… and where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed!
We played ‘king of the hill’ on piles of gravel left on vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn’t sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked.
Now it’s a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $49 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a threat.
We didn’t act up at the neighbor’s house either; because if we did we got our butt spanked there and then we got our butt spanked again when we got home.
I recall Freddie Holiday from down the street coming over and doing his tricks on the front stoop, just before he fell off.
Little did his Mom know that she could have owned our house (no lawsuits back then).
Instead, she picked him up and swatted him for being such a goof. It was a neighborhood run amuck.
To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been told that they were from a dysfunctional family.
How could we possibly have known that?
We needed to get into group therapy and anger management classes.
We were obviously so duped by so many societal ills, that we didn’t even notice that the entire country wasn’t taking Prozac!
How did we ever survive?
LOVE TO ALL OF US WHO SHARED THIS ERA; AND TO ALL WHO DIDN’T, SORRY FOR WHAT YOU MISSED. I WOULDN’T TRADE IT FOR ANYTHING!
“Good night and God bless.”
