I know it was here just yesterday! Wasn't it?

This is a picture taken when I was – I dunno 15 or 16 maybe.  It was the day I was cutting off my hair to just above shoulder length and getting it feathered on the sides.  Remembered feathering?  Yeah, awesome. 

The picture is a little worse for wear, something got stuck to it and left paper attached – but you can see a few things from my teenage years.  The big console TV (that didn’t work) with the little one (that did) on top of it.  Both black and white.  Standard in a lot of homes.  The red velvet Grand Marnier bottle (empty) – just because it was cool and alcohol related.  Oh – and see the yellow plastic ladder that held my earrings?  Yeah, we all had something similar, and just to the left of the poster is a little “Love is ..” cartoon.  Wow, I was a walking teenage stereotype apparently!

But there is one thing in this picture I miss, something I would love to have back if I had any idea where it went or how to find it again.

That butt!  Will you look at that?  Amazing, if I do say so myself.

I know what you mean. I would kill to be the size and shape I was way back when. If we only knew then what we know now. LOL

I'm glad you said it, because I was going to, but then I thought it might make me sound creepy.

Gorgeous hair too!

I've had a few feathered cuts in my day. Too much work .. these days my hair looks like yours in this picture.

Beautiful hair! I had long hair too which didn't really suit me. Yeah, I can't believe we were all that skinny!

Beautiful hair, BetteJo. I, too, would love to be half as thin now as I was back then. TV's are familiar too.
