Changing With The Times, Going With The Flow

January 24, 2014

Finding old photos in the garage takes me back to a time when, well, I didn't quite know what I wanted to be when I grew up. Part of me wanted to be this guy:


BBB and Biker Babe Annie, 1968, Tucson, Arizona


And then in 1975 I turned into this guy:


BBB with a woman he had relations with at that time. The only thing he regrets is the buscadero rig.

And a couple years later, I grew the Mustache deal.

BBB in 1977 striking a Samuel Clemmons portrait pose.


So, what have I learned?

  So what did you finally decide?

The question is: Have you grown up, yet?  I've been trying to avoid it for decades.

Any chance that bitchen' thumper is in your garage too?

@Mundo, no, in fact both the bike—a 441 BSA Victor—and the Babe, Annie Coury are borrowed for the photo. Oh, the shame. I actually had a 500cc Triumph Tiger, but don't remember why I'm posing here on this bike with that former Glendale cheerleader. I didn't have a girlfriend either. Such a poser.

Hey, Left-Handed Gun, were you trying to be You Know Who and was that one picture with you and your friend taken in Fort Sumner?

Comment by Margaret-Anne Moore on January 25, 2014 at 3:31pm

And, by the way, was that same photo reversed on publication?

Gee, BBB, you haven't changed much since 1977.
