Childhood photos

UncleBob inspired me with his picture (in his little tan suit!!) Care to share a picture of you from childhood? Oh come on! Ill go first...

This is me from 1977 at our annual Frog Jumping Contest! Love the look on my face! I thought frogs were gross and slimey back then, now I am quite fond of them!!!

Redkitty.
In case you might not be aware of it, Mark Twain wrote what has become a classic:
The Notorious Frog Jumping Contest of Calaveras County.

Here's a link to it:Mark Twain, The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County (1865/1875)
