Archive: Reminiscing continued

collegeroomates_grad1981As mentioned before, I’m not an active Facebook user but I do check in on my account whenever I receive the cursory email (too many from FB BTW). After noticing an incorrectly tagged photo …twice ….yesterday I made a couple wisecracks to my nephews about it. At about the same time I was sorting through my home office desk drawer and ran across a couple old photos. I’m not sure why, but decided to post one of them to Facebook. These memories made me smile and in keeping with yesterday’s “reminiscing” theme will include the 1981 Ohio Northern University graduation photo above (my roommates: Bill Gordon in front, Jerry Moody, moi and Don Blinn L to R)

I’m not letting my grown nephews off the hook for “incorrectly tagging” me either … so I’ll include a couple “cute” photos of these now 30 year old handsome … and much bigger than me … men below. (Ben and David …. on our sailboat Brenich in 1984 – click for larger.)

    Love seeing the old photos. Archiving them on your own “OWNED” blog is a better idea than posting them to Facebook and Google who claim the rights to the content once you post them there. My advice is to avoid giving away ownership to your content. 

    • I like them too … and am now glad to have a digital copy on my blog (who knows how long I’d the photo will last …. or if I’ll misplace it???)
