So, I’m a couple of days behind, having just found out about this today and it started on Saturday. So, here are a few more photos to get me caught up.
I’m the one in the middle, with the jeans pegged so tightly it’s amazing my feet didn’t go permanently numb from lack of circulation. Surprisingly enough, the red suspenders AREN’T the embarassing part. This was taken at my father’s 50th birthday party and all of the guests wore suspenders as an homage to his own particular sartorial elegance.
No, I’m not posting this one because I lost a bet. I’m not sure what is more embarassing…the fake nose, the pose, the terry cloth vest (which I wore all the time), or the lovely wide legged khakis…which might be courderoy, I can’t tell. This picture was taken in my grandmother’s driveway after the four+ hour drive to get there, which explains the antics. When we went in the house, my father was wearing the fake nose and glasses. The only thing my grandmother said was, “Jim, I didn’t know you’d started wearing glasses!” Now that I really think about it, this may have been the last year before I started wearing glasses.
Ok, this one isn’t THAT embarassing because you can’t see that with the cute brown jumper, I’m wearing sneakers, and knowing me and the way sneakers always looked when I was growing up, they were probably a little on the ratty side. And the person sitting next to me? Andy Griffith.
Ok, and one more to cover tomorrow. This is from my senior year of high school. If I remember correctly this was from February 1989, our school’s silver anniversary dance. My makeup looks like it was done by the same person who did the “Addicted to Love” girls, doesn’t it? I picked that dress out all by myself, had it altered, and paid for it with the money I earned at my very first job (I sold photography equipment).
That should hold you. I’ve got some more good ones, but you’re going to have to wait!
