I found this picture from 1993.  It was in the newspaper. Shall we list what's wrong?

"Tunnel" hat held on by polyester ribbon.
Wearing stays without a sleeved garment over them. (But hey! At least I was in stays and not the mythical "bodice".)
And ... I'm using a lucet.

I've come a long way.


  1. Not too shabby........

    I have seen worse. You sorta got a Karen Allen look going for you.

  2. Keep in mind that you only have to impress the newspaper photographer--it's like a concert. I was always told in band that as long as you start and end on the right note, no one in the audience will know the difference.

    Then it just gets down to how self-critical you are...

  3. bluesun,

    If we were on stage, it would be one thing. But part of this "thing we do" is to educate the public. Perpetuating myths is considered bad form with our group.

  4. Sorry...I burst out laughing at the hat. But I can do're the one who has taught me right from wrong! And I'm still learning! (Says the one who for many years sported the "Ft. Ti Look!" LOL)

  5. Funny, but all I could see was a lovely smile that extended right up to your eyes. You sure look like you were having fun that day.
