I'm really trying to become a little more adept in using things for photos on the computer. I have PhotoShop Elements, but pretty much am NOT familiar enough with it to do much of anything except crop photos and make them a little lighter.
This photo was taken on December 26, 1973 when our high school band here in Ohio was on our way to Houston, Texas. We'd been invited to play in the Astro Blue Bonnet Bowl (a college bowl game) in the Astrodome. Our band parents and directors made sure that it was a trip that none of us would soon forget. We all worked hard to earn enough money so that a plane could be chartered, and for many of us, it was our first plane ride. There were enough extra seats that some parents were able to go along too. Ted's mom and dad went and took this picture of him and his best friend.
Even though Ted's best friend has moved to Texas, we get to see them once in a while. He and his wife were here a year and a half ago, and plan to visit again this coming summer. We can hardly wait to see them again!
By the way, we were there from December 26 - December 30 and had a fabulous time! The Band Boosters made sure that we did some sightseeing (NASA, San Jacinto Battleground, the USS Texas battleship) in addition to practicing for our performance.
All I need to do is keep Alex from seeing this old picture of his dad...because then he'll say, "See? Dad had long hair too, and his hair was WAY longer than mine!"
