One more card. I believe this was late sixties, early seventies.

Bullet points

  • Spirograph!
  • "You’re as nice as this old horse."
  • Sighned, Angela

Apparently I’ve been making cards for a while. Am still sorting through things in my office and I found a few that I made for my mom in one of her boxes that I hadn’t gone through yet. This one is three pages, glued together. Quite fancy. I’m guessing it was early seventies because of a) smiley faces and b) cursive (I would have been around ten).

Noosa Heads, Queensland, c. ‘96
First night in town. We were in a gorgeous condo that had a huge wraparound deck with a 360 degree view overlooking the ocean and a beautiful national forest. Too bad I was “circling the drain” most of that six week long trip. Depression sucks.
I miss that hair. I’m letting the gray grow out now because, well, age. Onward.

I have a couple hundred old comedy posters from back in the day. All of them are in better shape than this one. I love my little Canon scanner, but it’s only equipped to handle 8.5 x 11 documents, not 11 x 17, the size of nearly all of my posters. So I scanned this one twice & stitched it together in photoshop. It ain’t pretty but you get the idea.

That one time, when I had a flattop. Look at that widow’s peak!
Two of the people in this photo are dead now. The rest of us are just old.

A couple of things that have gone from bulletin board to bulletin board over the years…

I’m finally organizing my office. I’ve only lived here ten months. Shut up.

Family Matters family photo, c. ‘93-‘94. Troublemakers in the back, top right. People have told me that they can easily pick me out in a crowd because of my hair. It’s big. Yep.

Oscar Nuñez, c. ‘94
Young Oscar doesn’t look all that different from Office Oscar. This was at my old apartment in Glendale, CA.

summer, 1977
Such a perfect shot of my brother & I on a family vacation. Life was so hard in Hawaii. To be fair, we were on a glass bottomed boat. I was queasy.

party at our house, c. 1960s
This was sometime between ‘66-‘68, those are the new years eves we spent in Houston. That’s my mom in yellow and she is talking to the fantastically dressed & coiffed woman who has her back to us — I imagine her name to be Jacqueline and she lives in a fancy town house. My mom’s friend Ricky is wearing blue & she’s the only person I really know in this pic.
Suits! Men wore suits.

Nice view, Greece, 1975

More pics from the big summer vacation of ‘75. I’m wearing my pukka shells, grey corduroy hip huggers and the Adidas shoe that all the kids at the Singapore American School were wearing that year.

Rifle, CO, mid-sixties
 My dad took this while on a business trip. He was there reviewing a joint venture shale-oil recovery project, which he says wasn’t viable at the time. (My dad worked in the oil bidness.)
