Easter Egg Race

A Year in America, 1981. Easter Egg Race on the White House Lawn, Washington DC. I wonder whether present day security still allows such innocent pastimes......

A Year in America, 1981. Ladies suitably attired at the Rooster Crowing Competition in Rogue River, Oregon. A bird called Hollerin' Harry won the opening event in 1953, and $50 for his owner, by crowing 71 times in one hour. History doesn't tell us which owner of a very large shotgun got to him first!

Heavenly Wheels

A Year in America, 1981, at a Sikh Festival in Venice Beach, California. I wasn't converted but took up skating again, only parting with my precious wheels, to my daughter, some 20 years later.
