The Bodybuilder / El Culturista

Here I am above in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania in 1963 at the age of 9 demonstrating bodybuilding’s side chest pose. Although it might have been the side relaxed pose — or more likely I was simply adjusting my bathing suit.

Aquí estoy arriba en las montañas Pocono de Pennsylvania en 1963 a la edad de 9 años, lo que demuestra la postura lateral del culturismo. Aunque podría haber sido el pose lateral relajado, o más probablamente simplemente estaba ajustando mi bañador.

Two years earlier, Oyster Bay, Long Island. Before I bulked up.

Dos años ántes, en Oyster Bay, Long Island. Antes de que me abultara.
(Oyster Bay, Long Island significa Bahia de Ostras, en Isla Grande.)















And in 1969, the back relaxed pose. Back in Pennsylvania,
at Lancaster Host Resort.

Red Hotness

It’s been hot here. And steamy. And the air hasn’t been all that pleasant. There were sand storms in Northern Africa in recent days that made their way across the sea to Andalucía. The red dust was said to reach as far as Sevilla (a couple of hours north of us). It definitely reached here.

(Click the images to see what the wind blew in.)

BEFORE SUNSET: JUST LOOK AT THE HEAT RISING FROM THE SAND!
