Yup, that’s me. Don’t believe me? Can’t say that I blame you. It’s a far cry from the slightly greying, conservative bob cut that I am currently sporting. My wardrobe now is a tad more conservative too. Jeans, white crew neck tshirt and vans are more my speed these days.
I think this picture was taken in the mid ’90s which would put me at about 30 years old. I’m basing that on the jacket I’m wearing and the hairstyle I’m sporting. Definitely pre-kids.
So why did I pick this picture for Throw Back Thursday? I’m not sure. Could I be missing some “wild” in my life? Not really. Do I have a deep seeded desire to own a hog? Definitely not. It’s more likely that I am just wishing I could still hop onto a motorcycle without bones creaking and muscles spasming.
The picture was taken outside of a restaurant on Granville Island in Vancouver. I can’t remember the event but there were a bunch of us out for dinner. If any of my friends are reading this and remember this night please refresh my memory. Right, that’s another thing I’m starting to miss. The ability to recall events, names and faces.
Look, I’m not “old” but I’m not a spring chicken either.
This picture is just a little reminder for me that The Best Things in Life are memories caught on film to be looked at years later.
