Dolly and Bill #4 July 7

On their way to a 50's dance, they were very agreeable about posing.

This couple, both near 70, have (in the past two years) gone skydiving, bungee jumping and did a month-long loop of the U.S. by train. They were heading soon to West Virginia to a place near where they'd gone bungee jumping. I asked her whether or not they were going to jump again. "Well, I don't know. Maybe. It wasn't too bad last time." She also showed me the bottom of the shoes she was wearing. They were the same saddle shoes she wore in high school. At the time, she explained, it was the thing to write the name of your boyfriend on the bottom of the shoe, right next to the heel where it would be protected. One shoe had her former boyfriend on it; the other the man she married.

good job with the glasses, only a hint of glare on his one lens.
