Today is my birthday
Today is my birthday. Usually I wouldn’t be so self indulgent and post about myself, but today I have had a win and would like to share it.
For a few years, I’ve been looking for two photos that were taken of me when I was a small child. I particularly was after one photo that showed me with my bike. As an avid bike rider, as I have been as an adult, I was keen to see this photo. Today I was searching for something else and there they were, in the bottom of a box, lying side by side. I recently also found another photo of me that I had forgotten about. These are probably the only photos in existence of me as a child.
I remember having this photo taken at the Shepparton Showgrounds, where my grandfather was caretaker. I would have been about 7 years old. My grandparent’s house was on the grounds and we visited often, so the showgrounds was my backyard as a child. It was a great place for a child to ride. It was away from the traffic and very quiet. Usually the only people around were workers and horse trainers. Don’t you love the bow in my hair?
I really don’t know anything at all about this photo at all.
