Memory Lane

Photos from my past, 1990 thru 2004 ...
April 2014 - In making a memorial for my friend Alex Gulla, I went through a box filled with photos, most of them dated from 1995 through 2001. I picked out my favorite images and thought I'd make a tribute page. Ahhh, to be young again. You'll note I had short hair in some of the pictures! :)

Bernie Doyle & Steve Garufi


June 2000 - My friend Bernie Doyle with me and my kayak. This was during my three-day voyage on the Passaic River.

Deering, NH

Summer 1995 - There was a time when I had huge lamp chop sideburns. Oh yes, I was a styling man in the summer of 1995. :)

My two brothers and I posed in front of the New Hampshire Capitol building in Concord.

There's also a shot of me standing at a lookout in Deering, New Hampshire.

Costume While living in New Hampshire and serving at a place called His Mansino Ministries, I once dressed as Highway 149 at a harvest party and won the grand prize for best costume. :)
Mary Horn Tractor In the late 1990s, I was in Willard, Wisconsin, and rode a tractor with Mary Horn. How about that?! :)

Nick Hughes Extreme Ironing

Nick and Kansas Kelly

In 2004, my friends Bernie, Nick and Kelly and others came to visit me in Colorado. We had a lot of fun and did many things.

TOP: Nick performed an extreme ironing feat at the summit of Pikes Peak.

SECOND: Nick and Kelly pose in Garden of the Gods. I believe this was also the day that I kissed a cactus in the park. :)

THIRD: Bernie, Nick and Kelly enjoyed scrambling among the rock outcroppings along the Pikes Peak Highway.

This was also the time when all four of us went on a road trip to Aspen. Nice memories!

Steve Garufi & Sharon Doyle I forget when and where this was, but that's me with Sharon Doyle.
Steve Garufi Around 1990, I had boring short hair. That's me, standing with my hands in my pocket, in the Bronx, New York.

Vladivostok Trip I don't have many photos from my seven week visit to Vladivostok, Russia, but I have this one and like it because it shows Leyna playing the piano. :)

And yes, that's my butt on the right. :o)

Thrower Family in Colorado Springs

Steve Garufi & Rain Thrower

Dinner at the Thrower residence in Colorado Springs. Shelby (left of me) looks so small and cute. And then there's that great picture of Rain and me.

If this page was entertaining, you might like my childhood photos. Maybe?
