20 years ago

I used to do a lot of sports style modeling, more like equipment modeling when I was younger. I used to put on all the provided gear and then 'engage' in the activities related to the equipment while being photographed. This 'engaging' was repititious, I would have to do things over and over again and if that wasnt enough if I did it in a way that was 'good' then I had to try and do it that way over and over again. I was cleaning out some files the other day when I ran across this 1987 catalogue for Cannondale bicycles. I had to ride this wheelie off this rock in Central Park so many times I lost count. I ended up not only getting paid but they gave me a brand new 12 speed racing bike a Canondale 6oo in red-which I still have, and still ride. I guess I am realizing that time has passed and there is only the present and hopefully the future but the past is only a memory. It seems like just yesterday but it was so many yesterdays ago.

Pictures and memories help the next generation understand their loved ones weren't always who they are today... I laugh when I say to my sons "You should have known me when I was somebody!". I hope you've shown that picture to your son!

You are the most famous person I almost know.

I fell off my bike every time I hit a bump. I can't imagine doing that stunt over and over again.
