Little-Known Fact: I Participated in the '84 Olympics

Yep, that's your Girl, back when she was Just a Girl in Delaware. I won an essay contest at the Girls Club and got to run a kilometer with the Olympic torch. I still have it -- and that fashionable ensemble -- as you actually just pass on the flame. A rare shot of me with Marmee and Poppy!

(Added bonus: The Pinto in the background and the Phillies fan on the bike. You just know he had a mullet.)

I think you ought to trot that torch out of storage and run down Ocean Beach with it, lit.

I'm sorry to leave this on your comments section, but I couldn't find an email address.

I’m going around to all the Bay Area bloggers/freelancers to let them know about our new book by a local author, the Historic Photos of Paris by Rebecca Schall. We’d love to send you a complimentary copy for possible review consideration on your blog of this book or of her previous title, the Historic Photos of San Francisco. These titles are done in a large 10x10 format and all images used are culled from several archives that represent rare or never before seen photos of San Francisco and Paris. We’re trying to get the word out to local folks, so I hope you don’t mind me dropping you a line to let you know about our books!

She has an upcoming signing on June 14th at 3pm at the Fisherman’s Wharf Barnes & Noble.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best,
