I Found Some of My Old Pictures

I don't know how these will turn out, as they were scanned from pictures that are over 30 years old. These were taken in 1975. The first was in June 1975, around the time of my graduation. I was 17. I am sitting on the porch with our dog Baby. The second was October 2, 1975, and I am with my cousin Sandra who was about to turn 7. The third is October 1975, a few weeks before my 18th birthday, and I am with my high school boyfriend, Bob. The last one is November or December, 1975. I am 18 and Sandra is 7. I made the T-shirt I was wearing in the last one. It was one of my favorites.

Thanks Barbara! Those pictures are wonderful. What a beauty you were! I will have to see what box my photo albums and see if I can get some pictures of me around the same time.

Constance, love the hair! Wait until you see one of mine!

Connie, how beautiful!

It is fun looking through old pictures! I have always loved looking at others' pictures, so let's see some more everyone!

Barbara
P.S. Some of us posted early pictures of us last year. Here is the one I posted:

Okay, here is a real oldie to hold you over until I can find some others! I was about 6 or 8 months and my then 8 year old sister put me in the wheelbarrow and the cat in the stroller!

LOL He wasn't that tall for a guy, but I guess that is considered average height. James is 3 or 4 inches taller.
