"Blasto from El Pasto 2: Los Caballeros...

This Suave and Debonair Gentleman is my Gramps, the Patriarch of the Rivera Family... As cool as superheros and moviestars can be, this man is above all, my Hero... A huge influence on the man I am today... Thanks abuelo...



This my first cousin Ricardo... Back durin' a time when we saw alot of each other, and unfortunately wore matchin' sunvisors... Ricky always had a big ol' smile for the camera...



Again, not an oldie, but the only pic of my little cousin Alexis I have... He is Nicole's dad and quite the character... I look forward to goin' back to Puerto Rico to spend some time with my family, and come back with new pics to share...



Last, but certainly not least, is moi... It is my belief that I just woke up... I mean, look at those sleepy eyes, and that, hair... Ah yes, the hair... I think the next time I post pics, I shall share the history of my "Big Hair"... Prepared to be HORRIFIED...



Well, that's it for "Blasto from El Pasto" this time around... I hope you enjoyed them... See ya' next time...

PEACE!!!

Thanks Marls and Normy... My Gramps was one stylin' cat back in the day... Still is in that "Senior Citizen Chic" kinda way... Old pics of any kind are always cool to me, especially when they are of Loved Ones... Wait til you see the next "Blast from The Past"... It'll be funny...

Man, that photo of your Gramps really reminds me of a dream I had a few nights ago...I was in a department store, it was very much like the one in the photo. It felt like the time was in the 50's or 40's. But the thing was that I was with my father and he was, rather WE were at a case picking out a watchchain for me. I don't have a watch from my dad, but I do have one from my grandfather. It's a nice Ball-Hamilton Model 999; it was carried by a porter for the railroads back in the day. My grandfatherr wasn't in the RR business, he had worked mostZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..........................
