I was looking for a picture or two that I'd taken recently to inspire me for a post, and nothing grabbed me. Then I saw some pictures of me that I scanned a little while back, and decided to pick a few random snapshots of me. What's better than ME???? Right??
I like this one of me with my kids in about 1973. We were at my brother and sister-in-law's home, and if memory serves correctly, my SIL said something like, "You guys act like you really like your mom." It worked!
This I'm just putting here because of my own amazement when I saw how teeny my waist was! Good grief! It must be four times that now!! OK, OK, not four. But more than two!! And what was with that cheesy grin? I donno. I'm trying to remember who took this picture. That's my SIL and my boyfriend, but my brother was off in the Army. Who the heck was there??? Obviously my memory doesn't last almost 60 years.
Would you look at this sweet angelic face? How adorable is this child and her kitten? I must have been about four here.
Again, I was just too cute for words!
So how can I explain that this picture of me, taken a year or more earlier, shows a very different side of the "angel"? See that smudgy face? My sister's lipstick. She would have been about 15 or 16, and the fact that I used it up like that I'm sure infuriated her. Not only that, but if you look again, you can see that I applied the lipstick to my thighs, as well. yeah, that tube of "Siren Crimson" or whatever it was, was probably done for. Do the Shirley Temple curls make up for it?? Probably not.
Now before you see the next one, you have to hear the story. This was in 1974 or early 1975. I had been to the grocery store, and the kids were helping me unpack and put away. I pulled two heads of cabbage out, one in each hand, and one of the kids asked me a question. I stopped to listen, holding the cabbages in front of me, breast level. Suddenly one of the kids started laughing hysterically. I asked what was so funny, and I was told that it looked like I had two green boobs!
Well, one thing leads to another, right?
What can I say? I was as silly as my kids in those days.
Alright, now that I've embarrassed myself thoroughly, I think I'll call it a day.
Yeah, that's probably best.
