Man and Boy

Just been playing around with our scanner and some old pics. Top right aged 13 - Disused Supermarket car park in my home town of Evesham. Top left aged 23 - Perth, Western Australia a photo shoot for a shop magazine. Bottom pic almost 33 - Our kitchen at home in Evesham, the skateboard's just for continuity, however bring that sunny weather back and you can call me Marty Mcfly! (Back to the Future reference for all you oldies).

Hey Matt: Are you a fan of Shaun White the snowboarder? Gerry just called to say that he rode on the bus with him up the Mt this morning and had a nice chat with him! Ger is a big snowboarder and Shaun is a bit of an idol for him. Wish I had some pics of me when I used to skate, my parents never took photos sadly!

Keep 'em coming, car-park-delinquent!
I'll just bet people said "You'll get nowhere, messing about on that thing", Western Australia's not exactly nowhere, so the laugh's on them... "Now clear off, you kids, or I'll call the police!"

I just rediscovered my scanner too. I just wish it could batch-feed a big heap of old pics, and scan-em whilst I'm out, or asleep. It's too slow a process.

Years ago, my brother found a tracked skateboard... It was a kinda downhill snowboarding on grass tool, I think. But some of the bearings were badly rusted, so eventually we gave up trying to fix it and gave it away. I sort of wish we hadn't.

Tracey wow, Gerry's a lucky man. That's great I know he's working but I bet he is having a blast. Have you ever seen a skate / snow film called The Shaun White Album? If not then track it down, the boy's a genius be it on snow or 'crete. I'm sure bits of it will be on you tube. I miss my snowboard holidays, that's the only thing I can say I really really miss nowadays is being able to say F' it lets jump on a plane and go boarding when winter rears it's ugly head on the UK. Making tracks through fresh powder on a mountain where the only thing you can hear is the sound of your board through snow, I need a board fix!
Soub i'm on my way over to your's right now, scan scan I bet you have some great old pics.
