It is difficult for me to pick "favorites" among music - i am so moody with it (when Heavy Metal is called for, mellow Jazz will absolutely not do. Though mellow Jazz is just what my soul doc orders sometimes. When Zydeco is what i feel in a moment, Bluegrass won't quite cover it. etc. BUT, i think i may accurately say that The Concert in Central Park may be my favorite album and performance bar none. Lots more i could say on this, buuuuut not this time ;-p

My dad had a VW bus for awhile too! That's me back in the summer of 1975. The hype for America's upcoming 200th birthday was everywhere. I was already riding bikes but when I saw this limited edition Spirit of '76 big wheel I had to step back down to the plastic pony one more time until the tires were gone. It was my last big wheel.
Here's another one of me hanging out with mom when Carowinds opened in spring of 1973. :)

While you were at Carowinds i was just a couple hundred miles to your south at MCAS Beaufort. Dad was stationed there at times, during the 70's. i well remember the Bicentennial!! i was 7, and it was a big deal to all those around me. i still save a bicentennial quarter and half-dollar, and still hold a place in heart for that national celebration of 200 years of Independence.

My dad dug VW's! We had a couple campers (ideal for young military families who frequently transfer between duty stations). He had a number of Beatles. And a Squareback...

It's a small world in more ways than one! We were right next to each other! I'm a Navy aviation veteran too!:)
Spring 1974 with my transistor radio
This was our camper called "Smokey" that was used on that debut Carowinds trip. It had their original bumper sticker on it.
Here I am at Pullen Park (far right) with Mom early summer of 74. We would usually walk around campus and stroll through the Free Expression Tunnel on park days too.
Mom was into convertible Karmann-Ghias. She had a few of them.

Speaking earlier of summer '75 it's hard not to also think of Jaws and how many times I saw that masterpiece over the summer. :) I had just seen it right before that pic for the first time. Soon after Dickie Goodman's "Mr. Jaws" parody came out and I couldn't stop listening to it. This game has always reminded me of that "ghost in the machine" bit.

I guess it's time for Tom Cruise to come "out of the closet"
Hello world! This is my name (summer '73). Here is the tartan of my clan's kilt! You've seen this side of RADAR Love with the music assoc. game so now I'll explain the other radios that I loved. I grew up in Wilmington (a.k.a. Wilmywood) at the beach in Cape Fear and in "The City of Oaks."

Soon after grade school I joined the Navy and became a Aviation electronics technician on the F-14 (Weapon systems, RADAR, countermeasures, communications, navigation, etc.) in Fighter Squadron 84 (VF-84 Jolly Rogers). We also did reconnaissance photography work since we were a TAPRS outfit. My maiden deployment was during the first Gulf War. Once the squadron disbanded in '95 we took over VF-103 "Sluggers" in true privateer fashion! :P Although F-14's were technically nicknamed "Tomcats" these were my beautiful screaming birds! :P Our callsign is "Victory" and our unofficial nickname is "The Hollywood Squadron" due to always being used for film/t.v. given how our mascot (skull and crossbones) is very photogenic.(creditsand more credits). I was on detachment with them at NAS Key West for the aerial shots used in Executive Decision. Our mascot's name is Ensign Jack Ernie. His bones are fashioned into the Jolly Roger and encased in glass that travels everywhere with the squadron (origins of his name used for the legend). Later on I taught and did curriculum development as a subject matter expert on the same material. It was never lost upon me how coincidental it was growing up in Wilmington (Wilmywood) in the shadow of the Outer Banks/Graveyard of the Atlantic that not only served as home to privateers like Blackbeard (Edward Teach) but also the Wright bros. first flight at (Kill Devil Hills) and then end up in that squadron.

After I left the Navy I studied electrical engineering at NCSU. I now live in Kissimmee near the "Stepford" community that Walt built for Disney employees called Celebration. :)

Here are some of my squid pics:
