The Velawesomeraptor Himself


Found and old picture, thought folks might get a kick out of it.  Augustish of 1988.  I was 17.  We were in New Jersey, somewhere near Bricktown (now known as just Brick).  My folks drove me cross country to drop me off at Penn State and we'd stopped to see family on the way.  That's Dad, Mom and kellyangel there, and the older lady is Helen Diedrick.  Helen is an OLD school Vaudeville performer.  She's a friend of Uncle Dick, and just one of the many amazing people he introduced us to.  It was shortly after this visit that we went to the boardwalk and dad (with only one dollar) won me the Grimm (of Mother Goose and Grimm fame) stuffed animal that I've kept in my room ever since.

Hard to believe that was 19 years ago.

Hard to believe I was that skinny.

And good god, who let me wear tie dye?

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the flashback.

Older and Wider
