From the time I was 15 until I was 19 or 20 I worked in a restaurant call "PJ's Food and Drink".
Thirty years later, the memories of that place are fresh in my mind. The original location was on Manchester Road in Des Peres, MO. but it is long gone. It re-opened in a new location a number of years ago in downtown Kirkwood.

The photo above was sent to me from my ex-brother-in-law, Bruce (he is in the photo, on the left). The handsome devil on the right is yours truly (click on the photo for a larger view). I would guess I weighed in at about 120 pound in those days. Skinny, but what a handsome fellow, no?

The things we did back then, cars, motorcycles, girls, beer, the list goes on and on. There crew included Airhead, Hoppy, Steve (aka X), a bartender named Curley (female), PJ himself, his brother Urban, and both my brothers.. Mom and Dad came in most Saturday nights.

Thanks for the flashback Bruce, those were the days indeed.

Holy crap Batman, you were skinny. Life was good back when there was no worries. It is good to reminisce. It makes you smile an illegal smile.

Make mine medium, no onions.

Funny finding the old pics. We had a family gathering this last weekend remembering the good old days. Mine were too embarrasing to dare post in my blog. You actually look good.

This is the Emerson I think of when I think of you. Didn't realize you worked @ PJ's with Airhead. Bruce looks familiar too. Fun to see
