From the "What was I thinking?" Department


Here is my first professional business photo, taken in 1985 shortly after I passed the state Real Estate licensing exam. You would have thought that one of my friends would have pulled me aside and asked what was up with the hair. I don't even remember who did my hair back then but its possible I did it with one of those old Toni perm kits. Seriously, friends, if I ever start to look like this again will you please stage an intervention?

I like the hair, really I do. And I like the big bow-tie too.

Don't worry, in another 15 years or so it'll come back in style and you can brag to your kids about how cool you were!

I agree with PeoriaIllinoisan. It's the times, not you. Heck, for 1985, that was a pretty awesome look.

Your current business picture will look just as hopelessly out of date and embarrassing 20 years from now. As will all of ours.

I wouldn't worry as much about your hair as that giant bow you are wearing.

You are much braver than I am! But since you posted it... What's with the Colonel Sanders bow? :)

My question is this:

Would you ever submit to being cloned? And, if you would, is it alright if I order two of you delivered to my house... just to make things interesting around here.

Pregoman, I guess that would depend on what you were planning on doing with me ;)

Anon, thanks for saying I'm "cute as a button".. that made my day!

Thanks friends, for passing up the opportunity to really have a field day!

Well, since this is a family blog... and that your husband is an attorney... and I recall popping a few beers around him way back when at the Hitching Post, and I remember him as heckuva nice guy ... I'll have to keep my plans for your clones as a... shhhhhhh... secret.
