The Hi Sign

When my father was vice principle of a high school a girl's bike was turned in to lost and found. Sitting on the bike, he posed for a photo to be used in the school paper in an effort to find the bike's owner. They used this outtake, the one where he's scratching his forehead. Dad always appreciated humor where he found it and kept the print.
