In '84 I was living in Houston, in the Heights. I hated Houston. I was making a good living there, though.

What a wonderful picture. Thanks for sharing it!

I came across an old Kodachrome slide of a friend of mine shooting my then brand new SA, Inc M1A. This rifle was a special from Springfield, with a NM barrel, NM front sight, and the action was bedded into a GI stock. The rifle also came with an SA, Inc scope mount that I never got around to using. Purchased for 400 bucks and change, which was a lot of money to me back then.

The time came when I had to sell something to get a new car, and the rifle went. I've since replaced it, but if anyone comes across serial number 025029, it used to be mine.



Shooting alongside of train tracks outside of Sulphur, Louisiana. The box of slides is marked July 1984.
Kodachrome 64, Nikon FE, AI Nikkor 50mm 1.8, 1/500th second @ f3.5. Those were the days.

Small world... I did too... a LONG time ago..

Dad was at Chennault AFB... got transferred my Junior year... did three years at LCHS... would have been class of 64 had I stayed there. Also was at Central School for a couple of years.

From what I understand it was later merged with Boston to achieve some sort of social engineering goal.. and I'm not even sure it is still open...

After that on to LSU... fraternities can be distracting... Big Grin And New Orleans close at hand.

FWIW

I don't really know how old she would be probably in early 50's maybe.
She was in Criminal Justice at LSU and went to work at the Sheriff's Office in Baton Rouge

Sounds like she was 10-15 years older than me... maybe the name is familiar because of family in Lake Charles...

One thing sure... I had a GREAT time at LSU Cool

1984... I was busy ruining my liver and losing brain cells in the fraternity house. That was also the year we got cocky and told the Dean of Students that she needed to "prove it, asshole" when accused of something they couldn't .... prove.

Man, 1984. I was 10. I was having the time of my life in Dunedin, Florida (near Tampa). It was right before we moved about an hour or so north. I still consider the Tampa/St Pete area as "home."

A great picture and I think it's cool how it makes us all "remember when." Well, those of us that were alive anyway!

In 1984 I lived in Houston (still do)and worked Downtown off of Houston Avenue at Washington Avenue at a place called Trade-Rite Appliance.
I was 27.
I sold things like Sub Zero and Theramore Ovens and Zenith, Mitsubishi and Sony TVs.
The Shuttle Craft was a real BIG deal here due to NASA.
