First, let me just say that I was told that I HAD to post this picture. If I didn't, lord only knows what photos would turn up on my mother's blog...and what neon-sign comments she'd post here to get you all to look. I was also told that I could NOT post a picture of my brother & Shannon's brother...perhaps it has something to do with nudity involved? Who knows.
Anyway...this is mini-me in my how-cute-is-that brownie uniform. It's hard to see in the picture, but I am wearing a very stylish beanie, as well. Yep, I said beanie. It's funny, I don't remember being in Brownies for very long. What I do remember is that we had a father/daughter banquet, and my dad's pager(?) went off in the middle of it, and he had to leave. Which seems strange now that I write that...b/c did pagers even exist then?
So, why the old-school photo? Well, my mom has been scanning slides, and sending choice pictures to me. I'm fortunate, really, that my parents have always taken pictures...I remember reels & reels of slides stacked up in the living room. She's sent me some great pictures of her & dad when they were younger...lots of me...lots of my brother & sister. In a bit of a collaborative effort, I'll make notes of dates & memories as I file these pictures. I'll eventually scrapbook a lot of them. Perhpas I'll do some mini-albums..."unfortunate haircuts through the years" or "20 years of poor fashion choices in glasses."
Wanna see my favorite scanned slide so far? Go here: memory fades. Be sure to click on the picture to make it larger...you really want the full effect of that seriously fashionable headband on my dad.
