Big hair & parachute pants


Mark Wills does a great job of recounting my growing up years (lyrics here). I'll be reliving it this weekend back in my hometown with the class of 1987, there has been some speculation about the appearance of parachute pants for those who can still fit into them.

In preparation there has been much picture posting, here is a picture of the fourth grade from my elementary school in 1979. I am third in from the left, second row from the top, tan dress and goofy glasses.

Yes, you have to have "the claw".

We'll be in your shoes on the 28th for Joey's reunion. Of course, people down there still dress like that every day.

You were a cutie. I was in 3rd or 4th grade in 1979, too and I sported the same look!!

Personally I prefer Z Cavariccis - tightrolled - over parachute pants.
But that's just me.
Have fun!!
