On the town with Mom

We were wild in our youth.

My single mother was a little wild in our youth. One late night in July 1970 we were out at a local beer hall called Threadgill's and someone snapped this shot of me.

I was 6 years old. My mother died in 1994 and this photo reminds me of her and us.
