ancient history

Maybe because my 30th HS reunion is coming up… Or maybe because Facebook has taken off… Folks from my HS class have been finding me, and vice-versa.

I dug out the middle school “yearbooks” and found a sixth grade picture. I think it must’ve been 1972 or 1973.

Geesh, talk about dorky…


I’m in the patchwork plaid western shirt, and since I see knobby knees, a skirt too. I had blue suede chukka boots, I may have been wearing them. Or maybe canvas sneakers, I can see white toe caps.

Fashion criminal from way back.

    I’m pretty sure that everyone was a fashion criminal in the 70s and 80s!

    Y’know what? That bunch look positively classic compared to what a group picture of their parents, taken that same day, would look like to us now.

    Cute! I love how guys were letting their hair grow long at that time. :) That kid in front of you looks like he’s about to cry!

    Whoa, were you ever cute! LOVE that smile, and I believe you were wearing Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers.
