Anyone remember Charlie Row? The Crow.
He lived up there at the same time I was there, though I never saw him.

But he did get around, since every chick I met up there had already done it with him,
not that it mattered, it just pissed me off that he was getting way more action than I was.
can't say

What ever happened to Charlie ? I have not seen him in a couple of decades.

Anyone have a picture of Karl with a K ?

It was the 80s man

Credit: Dr. F.

Greg Allen was born 1961 in Los Angeles, California into an artistically and intellectually-gifted family. As a child, Greg drew prodigiously, and after high school he pursued a passion for technical rock climbing while earning a living as a freelance illustrator. Greg relocated to Reno, Nevada in 1989, where he performed as a vocalist in a local (punk) band until he was seriously injured (beat up) in 1992. While recuperating, Greg taught himself to paint. His work immediately attracted the attention of collectors, and through word-of-mouth commissions and gallery representation he has sold more than 700 paintings.

I guess after Tahoe, he migrated down to hell, Reno

Yeah, Locker, that hand pic? Ooooooogy! Serious ANTI-chick magnet. Yikes. It's amazing the different forms the human body can take. That one is freaky, and I'll have nightmares for the rest of my life.

Thanks for that!
