2 pictures -3 decades apart.

While on vacation I snapped some pictures of my son on a carnival type motorcycle ride.

A few days later I emailed my Mother in St Pete and included a bunch of pics of the vacation trip.

The next day she emails me back this. She said she saw the picture of Davis on the ride and it immediatley brought back memories of me as a kid. She dug an old polaroid out of one of her picture albums and scanned it for me.

I thought it was pretty cool.

That's great. Noticed there is a roll cage now. You were living dangerously there.
