Throwback Thursday

Summer, 1968 - Put-in-Bay, Ohio.  Put-in-Bay is a village on South Bass Island.  Larry and I went there to spend the day with some of his family.  It was a fun day until we left for home.  Larry drove a Corvair and on the way home the engine fell out of the car!  Literally!  He found an old belt in the trunk and tied the engine up high enough off the ground that we could crawl at a very low speed to somewhere where we could get help.  Not much open at night in those days.  We got to a gas station and all they could do was tie it up better until he could get me home. An experience I will never forget.  Poor Larry.  Mom was NOT happy.

Look at you in your polka dot bikini! I bet Mom was not pleased, stuff happens. My son parked his Dad's boat on a sand barge and got stuck at low tide. Girlfriend's Mom was not pleased either. xox
