The pictures on this page came from Alabama's picture album.

Alabama in the shade at LZ Professional 1969. I can't tell if he has just finished reading a letter
or is getting ready to read one.
This was taken on LZ Professional in 1969. I had forgotten about this until I saw the picture. On
the left you have Clarence Marrs, unknown with the knife, Leonard Haas (Tubby), Sgt. Bailey, and Lavaughn Baird (Alabama).
I don't know why Alabama has shaving cream all over him. I know what Bailey's problem is. He is Dog Drunk. This is something
that he could do quite well as you can see. I think the only reason that booze bottle didn't go down his throat was his teeth
kept it out. That is a fifth of whiskey. The guy with the knife looks like he is going to gut old Bailey out. I can't remember
if Bailey was practicing his preaching skills here or not. His Dad was a minister in Virginia.
LZ Professional 1969. From left to right Edward Cloutier, Lavaughn Baird(Alabama), and Earl McGreger.
God only knows what these three have on their minds. McGreger was kind of on light duty because of his hand. He cut the palm
up pretty good with a spent canister during a fire mission.
