    This is my sister and I; I'm in the front, renting a bike in Wildwood, New Jersey. 1960 or 1961?

    Well, some of you have already seen me with my fancy hairdryer in the Thread Drift. Now here is one with my wild hair while roller skating with barefeet. I was so fast.

    Great idea, Mimi. This is going to take some time, though. First I have to find some photos, then scan, then upload...

    Yes, yes I'm on it. I happen to be spending the week at my father's house. Lots of pics to choose from!

    I actually did post this photo some time ago here but now I can't seem to do a search older than 1 year ago.

    It was to show how fat my head was (that's why I now wear a largish bike helmet!) and as a kid I was abit chubby until around 9 yrs. old I started to lose it.

    Am on the right-hand side, at around 4-5 yrs. old. Which means photo shot in 1964 in downtown Waterloo, Ontario. We had no car but my family could walk around to stores and park. A sister, who is 1 yr. younger, is beside me. Can't you figure out which child was known by the parents as the grumpy kid?

    I wish I could post a real valuable black and white photo of self, as a 4-5 month baby and my mother is wearing a high neck mandarin collared Chinese dress. When I get around to it...

    and 2nd photo, how we were 2 yrs. ago. I'm on the left at 48.

    Mimi, your sister seems to naturally tan deeper than you. I do have another sister (not in these photos), who does not tan as deeply as the rest of us. Don't you just love the vintage cars in our photos..

    At least you have a photo on bike in childhood. There were no photos taken of any of us on a bike..not at any point in time when we were children/teens. Probably because my father guarded his Pentax SLR camera and only allowed us occasionally to use his camera so not to waste cost of film. (We were poor, not because my father was unrelenting.) And when we were out playing and biking...he had to sleep in afternoon before he worked his evening restaurant shift.

    Our trips out of town were just day trips by family car, to Toronto once a year.

    Ah those "hillbilly" days.

    1972. My serious, skinny big brother taking care of his chubby spoilt little sister. I wonder where those sweaters came from. And look at those shoes!

    Not having a scanner, this is the only one I can find as someone else stuck it on the web.

    I'm the skinny looking thing in the middle of the back row, wearing a dark jumper and dark blue jeans... Lovely early 80's outfits!!!
