Pictures take me back to my youth in Mohave County.
The Kimo Cafe, 1950. Jim Weinke at door
The Kingman Drive-in, 1963
We tried to sneak into the drive-in with Michele Gilpin and Rick Ridenour in the trunk of Michele's cousin's GTO. We got caught when the Hurst gear shifter got locked in reverse and I had to open the trunk to let Rick out.
Both Rick and Michele are gone.

Tommy and his grandfather

The Exits, New Year's Eve, 1964
A sad irony is I am still trying to impress five girls I went to school with. Three of them are gone, but I'm still trying.
