This photo was taken during the summer that I turned 13.
It was a great summer, spent on a ranch... riding horses,
shoveling stables -- well, that wasn't my favorite part of it --
learning how to drink and smoke, etc. At some point, my
parents came to visit for a weekend, bringing along the
fine fellow in the picture: our family dog, Willie. We got
him from an animal shelter for $7 (including leash!) and
had him for 14 years. He was a prince among canines.
I'm not sure who the woman in the photo is.
