From the Scrapbook

Recently I dug up some old photos. The surfing is a bit dated but it is kind of interesting to see what surfing in the 1980’s to the mid-1990’s was all about.

Practicing what I preach in Cocoa Beach!

With that…post #100 has been reached!

Thanks everyone!

    Cool pics! And congrats on 100. Did you mean to make those last few lines rhyme? Because it totally works 🙂

      I actually did not. Then I was re-reading it and saw you it was all rhyming and I pictured Mohammed Ali giving it as a speech and I said to myself that it was a keeper!

    Awesome! Fun to see photos of you in your element. And fun to look back, eh? Also, I agree with Jess. The rhyme worked! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      I am trying to put together some real old Super 8 film that I took around some contests when I was a grom. There is some old stuff of some old pros and Kelly when he was in the Boys division.

      Also, look at my posts called “A Night at the Museum” and “Return to the Museum” and check out the old stuff I have collected. Lots of brands that are out of business. Funny stuff!
