You Asked




These pictures are both in my senior yearbook. I scanned them and cropped - sorry about the quality. The second photo has a blurb on my nose. I might could find the actual photo, but it is in storage. If it were in color, the tulle that I am wearing is pink. My hair was a dirty blond. Did I have that "girl next door" look or what!? Just ask John; he knew me back-in-the-day. The summer I met John he was 18 and I was 17. He was driving jeep tours in Red River. I asked my brother about him, but I did not know John's name.

Me: You know, that jeep driver that lives near us.
Craig: There is not a jeep driver who lives near us.
Me: You know - the one who drives by all the time in that old green car!
Craig: You are so stupid. That is John and he drives by because you and Patti sunbathe in your bikinis.

Ab-so-lute-ly!!

And... methinks you may have had traffic jams in front of your house, based on Craig's comment.

LT Nixon said...

Lookin' good!

Inquiries said...

I do not see you in Jesse. Somethings yes but not the over all appearance.

Becky said...

I had to laugh at what Craig said. That's what brothers are good for!

Lt Nixon, I'm honored to have you drop by.

Ashley, Jesse sort of, kind of, but does not really look like me. She has a lot of Toby in her.

Becky, brothers are so helpful.

Buck, we were in a RV park that summer - there should not have been much traffic, but John drove by like clock-work - duh!

Junk Diva said...

Cute. She does look like the Breck girl.

John said...

So where are the two girls in their bikinis? :-) Lou, for the sake of me I don't remember that. I guess I'm getting old but I don't doubt one minute that I enjoyed looking at you girls sunbathing. Of course, I wasn't being very discreet driving a '54 Chevy Powerglide that stuck out like a sore thumb. That was a great summer though with you, Patti, Craig, Leroy and everyone else...

John said...

Lou, I meant to say "where are the pictures" of the two girls in their bikinis :-0

Mrs. Bear said...

Lou you still look the same. It's the twinkle in your eyes that makes the day fun. As far as Craig goes...how can you think a guy that looses his car for a week would notice anything (sorry Craig but it's true).... Hey Q-Tip how's it going???

The Friendly Neighborhood Piper said...

MamaLou as a Breck Girl! That is so right! She looks just like one! Solid, solid observation Jewels!

So...MamaLou...were you? Inquiring minds want to know!

Piper, only my hairdresser knows for sure. Are you old enough to remember that commercial?

John, it is hard to forget that car. I don't really remember how many times you drove by, but I do remember talking to Craig about it. We probably met soon after that and the fireworks began.

Mrs. Bear, even Bear thought I was cute until he met you. Why settle for cute when he could have drop-dead gorgeous?

John said...

Doing fine Mrs. Bear, thanks for asking.
Fireworks Lou...now I remember those but hey, I've got pictures of you and the other girls in our mobile home so I think at least we tolerated each other :-)

Bag Blog said...

John, send the photos - I will post them.

Mrs. Bear said...

I got a few pics from back in the day...I'll try and locate them and send them. Lou remember our "JDW" red t-shirts? I lost mine after we had a whirlwind trip to Red while we were all at Tech...humm what a trip. You may have been spoken of as "Cute" but let me add smart, talented, honest, a loyal friend..Toby is a lucky man!!!! I Love You!!!!
