Well That One Sucked – RunLog 9-4-14

As you can tell by the title my long run today was not something to write home about or give it more credibility than it deserves.

I started out really well and thought that I was going to have a GREAT run, but that changed going into mile 3.0 and didn’t get better – it got worse.

Throw Back Thursday – 1971 Camaro

This is a photo from 1976, in front of USCGC SHACKLE, when I was on the buoy tender in South Portland (depending on when the photo was taken) I was getting ready to go on liberty and had parked there. It seemed like a good photo and showed Portland in the back ground.

The car was my 1971 Camaro after a paint job by my Gramp and a new engine that Jimmy McGinnis put in (that 350 4 barrell, sure could fly). It was one of the most unreliable cars that I ever bought and I learned a LOT about car repairs, but it sure looked good and as a 18-19 year old kid driving around in it sure was fun.

Looking at this photo brings back a lot of memories, good times, bad times and more than a few smiles.
