lead1.jpgI have to say the Nostalgia series on NSDN has been a ton of fun piecing together so far. I hope you, the readers, are having as much fun looking through this stuff as I am. Last week I received a package from Brian Chapman filled with amazing photos. He obtained these photos from the collection of the legendary Bucky Ray. I have to extend a huge thank you to both of these guys as there are some true treasures within these photos. These photos will be broken up into a few different segments throughout the next few weeks. I also have to thank Brian for taking the time to burn up some phone minutes & go through these photos with me to provide some great insight for photo captions. Anyways, read on and enjoy.
