Here are two photographs from my own photo album of the "early days:"
The photo above, I'm pretty sure, is from the bar scene at King Luis' Inn in San Diego - I'm celebrating my 26th birthday with my girlfriend, Linda. Note the dapper two-color green and puce shirt I'm wearing. I even had some hair! Linda, as usual, was dressed well, and always smiling for some reason.
And the birthday cake picture with me blowing out five candles (they had a fire code, you know):
What was my drink? I'm pretty sure it was a vodka and tonic. That was all I drank for a long time before going to screwdrivers (vodka and orange juice) later in my drinking career.
I think the cake was store-bought, probably by our friends at the bar, Art and Sandy, or the owners, Louie and Evelyn.
