Friday Photo Flashback - wow...that long ago?
Okay, since I really hijacked Friday Photo Flashback last week to share Buttercup's birthday, I thought this week, I'd get back to the true meaning of Friday Photo Flashback. Alicia puts it like this: I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use!
As this picture comes from my 1979 high school yearbook, I know it was pre-digital. Actually, since it was taken at a football game at our high school's stadium, I can tell you it was taken in Fall '78. I think it is definitely in keeping with Alicia's goals. This picture takes up almost a full page in the yearbook because my friend was on 'yearbook' got to help arrange the pictures. If I remember correctly, the placement of this particular picture was the result of a crush someone had on her.
The funniest thing about this picture is not the blank look on everyone's faces, although that is hysterical. No, the funniest thing about this picture is this: When our yearbooks came out, I asked by friend who she was sitting next to in that picture and I was serious. I have always been in so few photos that I didn't recognize my 15-year old self in that picture! Isn't that funny?
