Jerry,

you should get some neighborhood kids together, put them in boat shoes and polyester bell-bottoms, and take some photos, like the schwinn catalogues in its heyday - - -

(both are 1973 advertisements for Schwinn 'lightweights')

I like to look at the photos in the old Schwinn Catalogues. They are filled with the most happy and relaxed people on earth. Whenever I get stressed out, i just open a catalogue and flip through a few pages and already I'm feeling more happy and relaxed. To top it off, i go out in the garage and straddle my 1974 schwinn lightweight for about 2 mins, and i'm about as happy and relaxed as can be.

Happy Relaxing !!
