I've been wanting and meaning to post this picture for a long time. My Dad sent it to me sometime last year. I've always loved this photo. #1, because it is SO 1970's. #2, because my parents look SO young (they were!). #3, Dad's hair is just FABULOUS! #4, and best of all, is because I think this photo of me truly shows the type of child I was. Tomboyish, adventurous, free-spirited, scrappy. I remember giving my parents a really hard time whenever they tried to make me wear a dress. It just wasn't me. Still isn't. In my youth, I was most comfortable in a worn out pair of cowboy boots. A neighbor and, I believe, a friend of my dads, came over and took this series of photos on this day. I love them all. There's one of me on a swingset, with my feet high up in the air. If you concentrate, you can see my undies. Because there was nothing girly about me and I wasn't used to wearing a dress. How on EARTH can you PLAY, really play, if you're wearing a dress. You can't. It's for this reason, and many others, that my girls don't wear dresses much. It puts you at a serious disadvantage. And where is the fun in having other people seeing your undies constantly? Yuck. Anyway, I digress.
Here it is....
Mom & Dad, does this take you back or what???
