working back west

Location: Kirkersville, OH

janietrain and I got up this morning and headed out of New Jersey, stopping for much needed showers just before crossing the state line. I picked up my load in Pennsylvania and spent the day driving.

I was re-reading my entry from last week with all of the old photos of my uncles and dad from the days of their band. I realized that somehow, I managed to not show you my favorite of them all....

My dad has the Buddy Holly horn-rims doing the sly bird with the crossed-arms. My uncle James is at the bottom, center with all the teeth showing and my uncle Rick is flying his bird with one hand and a banana peel in the other. Incidentally, the chick at the far right of the picture with the dark hair is Beth, who used to baby-sit me when I was a toddler. She, and the guy with his arm around her, are the couple who were coming out of the church in the photo I was in with the smashing plaid jacket.

Anyway, if any of you care, the website for Midnight Sun is now online. I'm no web designer by any stretch of the imagination, but my marginal abilities with HTML and a WYSIWYG editor have impressed the old-folks for and about whom it was created. There are 60 pictures of this nature in the photo gallery to browse through if you get a kick at looking at stuff like that. I know I sure have, but of course, it's a part of my past in a way.
