As you can see, I was already into the western theme. I think this set the tone for my love for anything John Wayne early on. Notice I have bangs. My forehead is so high, that I have hardly any hair almost to my crown. This outfit consisted of jeans and the shirt was definitely flannel. I think I wanted to be like my brother so much that I insisted on being dressed like a boy.
Then I found out about being a girl. I got my first home perm. We didn't have running water in those days. I remember mother reading the directions and one of them was that you poured a certain number of pitchers of water over your head to rinse the perm solution out of your hair. And notice, I'm wearing a dress. This is the third grade picture. The year I went from being the baby of the family to being a middle child. How traumatic. My life was never the same. The next photo is my fourth grade picture. That year was a blur. I honestly can't remember anything about it except who my teacher was. She had pets, and I wasn't one of them.
This last picture is of me in the fifth grade. We had another Operetta, and I was a lady in waiting for Snow White's court. My mother made this dress. It was pink cotton with a net overlay. I thought I was big stuff. This picture was made beside our house.
How about your school days? Did you enjoy them, or were they a blur like some of mine? I need to know.
I received an email about a comment I'd left on another blog. I was asked to show some of my crystal/glass collection. If I get time today, I'll take some pics of my favorite pieces and post them tomorrow.
In the meantime, have a happy Saturday. Do something silly. Make someone laugh.
