Hi Everyone.....

Just recently I was going through some of my Mom's things as she is selling her home and moving to a retirement community. Anyway, my Mom never throws anything away. I found my baby blanket (yes... the old Dave-A-Roo was a baby at one time)
...... as well as all kinds of stuff that document my arrival on Earth in 1948 to my present adult life. The advantage to being the ONLY CHILD is having no siblings to rob me of attention
! In the process of doing all of this, I found THIS PHOTO which I had made in December 1970 as a Christmas Present for my Mom. If memory serves, this was taken about 3 weeks before Radio First Termer launched on January 1, 1971. I am 22 in this photo. My Mom had put it away with my letters, etc. and I have not seen this photo in 35 years and had forgotten it even existed. I added the Radio First Termer Logo and the Seventh Air Force insignia before posting. The original photo did not have these. Damn, I was a great looking kid!

Nice shot Dave. You filled that uniform out well. Bet your razors lasted quite awhile though.

Heres me circa '03. Thought I'd give people a face behind the words. That is Bruno the devil puppy on my hip. He's a quirky lil bugger. Not so lil now and more quirky.

Hey Dave...

So you took the EASY way out and joined AF...

Your BDU's look awfully tight - did you have them pressed or did you iron them yourself..?

I finally figured out that the cost of getting them pressed was worth it big more failed inspections and no more loss of time ironing - as I had better things to do with my free time like drink beer and terrorize on the local community!!
