This is a photo of my cousin Troy, the kid wearing the red tie, and myself, the one in the dirty tee shirt on the left. It was taken in 1968 and depicts our great relief after being found by our parents after hours wandering in the Alabama backwoods behind Troy's house - the one in the photo. Troy wore ties at that time because he thought it made him look like Elvis Presley. Troy and I wandered onto a neighbor's property who took us in and called our parents. View full size.
