Gibby on a cruise, Minnesota

Gibby on a cruise, Minnesota

In my little photo album where I keep these shots I have captions for each photograph. This one, "Whatever comes our way", from the song "Get Your Motor Running".

A very dramatic looking photo I think. A note on these photographs. I copied each one from an album that Gibby had at his cabin in the Minnesota north woods. I used a Nikon 35 mm camera with a close up 55 micro nikkor lens to capture these images into slides and then had photos made from the slides. It worked nicely. I heard that when Gibby died his wife at the time threw out all his motorcycle memorabalia so these photos are all that is left. I value them highly.

Gibby would get a new Harley every year and would drive to Milwaukee where they were made to get it and then he would drive it back to Duluth, Minnesota. He was my favorite uncle.

This picture was taken at the Grosse Ile, Michigan home. We moved here after Wickliffe, Ohio. Mom and I took this car and traveled cross country to visit my Aunt Dorothy who lived on a house boat in Seattle Sound, Washington.

My family always had boxer dogs and we had friends that raised boxers. This was at the house in Wickliffe, Ohio. Wickliffe is a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio
