Here are some more shots taken from my friend's property over in nearby Gloucester, the Glenns area to be exact.
Remember Datsuns? Now they're Nissans.
A high school friend had one. A very sporty, brand new 280Z, if memory serves me.
Although I hate to admit it, I remember being a little jealous.
This may explain why I took such satisfaction in beating him every now and then in ping pong, which was what we did in gym. Every day. We played ping pong. Day after day after ping pong playing day.
I don't remember why we played so much ping pong in gym class, exactly. It had something to do with the school not wanting you to fully participate in gym class if you played sports and had a game or a track meet or something. I'm sure it was intended to avoid injuries during sports season. Or something.
Anyway, to this day I love ping pong. And I no longer care about Datsuns. Or Nissans. Not in the least. Give me a VW bug any day.
However, this post was not started with the intention of spending any amount of time on the topic of ping pong or jealousy. Or even Datsuns.
I just wanted to share some shots of old things
sitting amid the new growth of spring.
