Thats me on the left and beside me is a girl who became my best friend. She still rates that number 1 spot as best girlfriend.
As you can see by our plaid suits, we were trend leaders on the fashion front. Either that or our mothers chose our clothes for us, which is more like it. I think we both wished we could have been as cool as the other kids and have been allowed to wear jeans and tee shirts on picture day. We will always be grateful to our mothers for their fashion guidance. And also for their gift with scissors, as D and I both sported freshly trimmed bangs/fringe for the big day. I love this picture now. But all through our school years we would laugh at ourselves both standing out like sore thumbs and looking what we thought of as a couple of goofs! Looking at it now, I think we look like the cleanest and "goodest" girls in the class. And we probably wee. We were both so innocent and naive.
Dee and I got together for coffee yesterday. We both still dress the same! She got here and I noticed we were both dressed in long sleeved tshirts with fleece vests and a "pashmina" or scarf as we used to call them. We have so much in common.
Our visit was cut short by me having to go to the rescue of a man who was without keys. Otherwise we could have drank coffee and chatted all day.
Here's to life long friends.
