|Uncle Chris, Christian Martin Metzger at the 16 to 1 goldmine in the 1960s. Standing, shown with fellow gold miners; Fred Darey, and Lyle Peplow.||Aunt Mable, Mable Dahl, sister to my Mom and Uncle Chris. The photo was an accident when the shutter stuck for several frames.||Mom Singing. In the back yard of our first house on Coyote Street. George is about two and his new sister is Pam.||Cliff Butcher and Me in 1968. Clifford Lee Butcher was my best friend from when we were about 5 years old until our late teens. He was killed in a traffic accident when he was 26.|
|Scott Woodman 1972. I drew this the last time I saw Scott. He was the next door neighbor at my Aunt Mable's house. We grew up together until our late teens and then lost touch. 30 years later he called me late one night and we had one of those great long rambling phone talks. He died about a month later; we never did manage to get together again.||Doug Coulter Standing on the Roof of Aunt Mable's House on Gold Flat Road sometime in the early 1970s.|
Duane was sorta like the brother I never had. We ran away from home with his 18 year old girlfriend in her van in 1968 when we were both 15; we went to Seattle and it was one of the great adventures of my life.
|Nancy Lee Douglas and My Rifle, 1977. We were together off and on from 1972 till 1976|
