19840113 - my 10th birthday - Clint, Ronnie

Awesome pic of me and the computer I grew up with, an Apple 2+ with 48K of RAM (later upgraded by 16K to a total of 64K of ram.)

 

I think I am playing Aztec or Lode Runner...

 

The crazy thing is that I still have that chair (or one exactly like it)... and that dresser. The computer desk finally died in the mid-2000s.

 

Clint, Grandma.
