Old photo of the day...

In honor of my little brother's birthday, I chose this as the "old photo of the day". It's from the Motel West BBS days, back around 1987. He, his wife, another friend and I rented a house out in West Valley City, it became the Motel West hangout. To this day we refer to it as "HQ". Those were fun times, people coming and going at all times, like freakin' Grand Central station. Nobody bothered calling to see what was going on that night, they just showed up. One of my funniest memories from that time was when we had a water fight with the neighbor kids. The kids had the hose and some buckets or something like that outside, and the "adults" were throwing water at them from inside the house. We got soaked. They got soaked. The house got soaked. Fun times.

In the picture below are (by their screen name);

Sitting up : Your Conscience, Sir Duke, White Lioness, Ed Broadbent, Professor Faust.

Laying down : Frankie the Z

The head you can just barely see, underneath everyone else : The late, great Mr. Coffee.

Holy cow! Now that would be an awesome picture for BBS Flashbacks... (You have a higher resolution image??)

Seeing all the folks together. Now that brings up some memories of HQ. Something was always going on at HQ. That almost looks like a mugshot on an LTD vs. Ice-machine accident I seem to remember...

Let's see, I remember a few of Frankies birthdays...so is Zelba a speed limit this year? I had my full black balloon gravestone B-day a while back. I believe Frankie even left me a voice mail telling me I was "old".

Memories, ahhhh. How can you forget the LTD v. Ice Machine escapade of 1987? I can still hear the lady at the counter saying "We don't have a drive through window yet." when we first walked in. Too bad I don't have a picture of that! But if you want a larger version of this picture, you'll have to fill out Form 392-HQ/MOD, in triplicate, send one copy to me, another to The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the final copy to Gayle Ruzicka. Or you could just email me at slim@srossi.net and ask. I'll send it to you. As for Frankie, he just turned 2 score and 3 years.

So, when did Frankie work for Autozone?!

Actually, I think that's his Naugle's uniform, I don't think he ever worked for Autozone.
