Old Pics

Maybe I should post this on the 'Morning Joke" page. Going through old pictures last night and found this one from the early '70's.

It really isn't pretty when you age. The wifey is going to kill me.

With a group of friends and relatives we used to spend two weeks vacation in Northern Wisconsin. Picture was taken after a ski show we used to put on for family and anyone who cared to watch. I am on the far left holding my old EP Super 1 slalom ski.

Fun pics guys! Just remember...growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.

Barely heavy enough to keep the rope tight

That was my cousin's green Glastron with a 50 Merc. The boat on the left of the dock is still in the family....a 1960 Alumacraft Queen 16. It had the original 1960 75 hp Johnson at the time of that pic (1979 or so). It has been repowered twice and restored once since that time. Can't find a current pic.
