Step-brother sent some photos I've never seen. Strange to see pictures this old for the first time.
1970's: Forget PS3 or Wii -- we had mud. It was cheap and abundant.
This was obviously a great day spent in the mud. Don't know which of the two big mud incidents this would be (of course there were MORE than two childhood mud adventures, but only two are officially documented). One time it was a giant mud puddle in front of the house --- we did flips and threw each other around and pretended to swim, etc. Another time we tried to walk to the river and found a couple feet of mud leading up to it.
I am the ugly kid on the left. Sisters on the right, two step-brothers in the middle. This is possibly a step-cousin behind us.
