Gongey’s BlogDescribing the Indescribable World of The Gongey

All things Gongey

A Gongey is a special being. Having been created in the fiery furnaces of hell...wait...let me start over.
Back when collars were huge and pants were in the shape of bells I was born. The year was 1977. After 10 long months of gestation I was ready to join the world and make my contribution.
This blog is a record of my life. Good, bad and generally mundane!

Over the past 2 years I have been scanning all my pictures in and storing them on my hard drive to later back up on DVD.  As I go through the pictures I just think to myself “wow that was a long time ago” or “dang that was a fun time in my life”.  So my charge to anyone who is reading this; go out and dig up your old photos and start looking through them!
You will be amazed and excited over the fit of nostalgia you are bound to have.  Some of the pictures I pulled out brought back memories I forgot were there!  It’s amazing what survives in the long term storage section of your brain. 
If at all possible PLEASE scan your photos and back them up!  It will be a benefit to you AND your (future) family members.  Plus it really doesn’t take that much space.  It doesn’t take any at all if you back them up to CD-R or DVD-R.  I am eventually going to get a safety deposit box to store all my DVD’s of photos. 

Anyway, here is a picture of yours truly in the early (innocent?) years!  The first one the Hard family will surely recognize, as that was their van in the background.  Risa in the window and John in the street.
The second picture is of me and Ryan in the old TV room of Grandpa and Grandma Ivies house.  I remember this picture really well as we had just argued over who got to lick the bowl(the blue one between us).  As you can see I am pissed off and pouting!   hahaha!

*NOTE: the 2nd picture is a link to bigger a image.
