Not sure if I should post a picture of myself. Too afraid someone will recognize me :-)

Great pics everyone! And Laurence I feel old looking at those pics, too - from another old-timer as well. They are such cutie pies.

No :-) I just would prefer not to take any risk of someone recognizing me. I have already shared a lot of personal information on this website. Where is your picture, Utrecht ? :-)

You DH looks suspiciously like Jonathan Frakes from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Wow, he does a little.

I showed him your comment...he said if he was really him he'd have been retired years ago!

Make it so Number One!

You asked for more ladies' photos--here I am, proud Mom, with my son and daughter-in-law.
My son is a CHP officer (yes a Chippie on a motorcycle), and he had just won the CHP officer of the year from the local Knights of Columbus.

Hippie Hollow now that brings back memories. I was there 84-98. The Oasis on Lake Travis burned down. It was rebuilt even bigger and in the winter has an outdoor skating rink. Many good times there as well.

Picture a naive young man, raised in a small town in North Carolina. Pulled into the parking lot, got out of my car, spot a sign welcoming me to Travis County Park so & so..."Clothing Optional"! lol....yep, I wasn't in podunk anymore!

Also...when I first moved to Austin, it was completely legal to drink & drive in Texas. You couldn't be DRUNK & drive, but drinking was legal. I remember sitting at a red light in Austin, on Ben White Blvd, in my car, sipping on a beer with my brother-in-law, looking over at the Austin City Police car stopped next to us, & exchanging waves with the 2 cops in the car. The light changes, we all drive away. Hard to imagine now, huh?

A few months after the law changed, I got pulled over by the cops while driving & eating an ice cream cone...he said he though I had a beer in my hand! Wow!

Last thing...also in my early days in Austin, Zilker Park down by Barton Springs (an Austin City Park right in town) allowed topless sunbathing. I thought I'd died & gone to heaven!

Ah, the good old days! Way too much traffic for me in Austin now. I lived mostly in south Austin. The last few years out in Bastrop.

I used to fish Lakes Travis, Austin, Canyon, Buchanan, Bastrop, Fayette County...etc. Also lots of time on the Colorado & Pedernales rivers.
