1984


So, after a quick tutorial from Trooperdog (Thanks Troop!) I'm posting the dreaded High School Senior Portrait. (Please keep in mind that I graduated in 1984 and, yes, those are braces. *Shudder*)

As I recall I had my hair "done" for this photo. I remember wanting to wear a solid colored sweater. I even had a nice dark purple number with an interesting collar all picked out but this was taken in August and I just couldn't stomach the idea of a sweater. I thought of changing at the photo studio but how was I to change into a sweater at the photo studio over my freshly styled hair? Oh, the dilemma. This may have been my Mom's peasant dress but it was simple and not too hot on that August day so it won out. I was never thrilled with it but whatever...

Ok, now for my dare: I'd like Norman to post his senior portrait but he seems to have abandoned his blog. What do you say Norman? How 'bout coming out of retirement for this one?

As the Australian cruise director on our recent cruise would say, "That pic is SMASHING!"

How funny. Personally I think you look less "80's" than some of the girls in our yearbook. I wont name any names, but when it come to "big hair"......

Of course I do not have my yearbook, as my dad decided since I had not looked at them in 20 years that they were not important and put them out with the trash.
