Eighties Flashback!

Prepare to smile BIG by the end of this post.

First, my apologies, I have no Photography Friday post for you this week.  I will definitely have one for you next Friday.

Why?

Well, the last 24 hours have been purely chaotic.  My oldest son returned home from his freshman year at college in North Carolina.  Doesn't it seem like I was just crying my eyes out as I dropped him off?  Summer break begins early for the southern schools and he arrived home last night.  I am, of course, thrilled.

Remind me of that when he leaves dirty dishes all over the house.

My youngest son caught the crud I had a week or two ago, was home sick from school, and needed to be run into the doctor.  (He's fine … just needed some meds!)

Also, I'm on my way out of town early today for a long girl's weekend.  I'm sure you understand how crazy it sometimes gets as you're packing and preparing for a trip.  I'll be in Santa Barbara and neighboring vicinities until Tuesday.  I do plan to post while I'm gone, assuming I'm able to find decent Internet access at the dump hole in the wall I'm staying in.  I may, however, be posting when I can vs. my normal, fairly reliable, schedule.

(If you've emailed me in the last few days, forgive me for not yet responding.  See above craziness!)

Photography Friday posts take quite a bit of prep time on my part, and I just couldn't pull it off this week.  Instead, I thought I'd end the week by providing you with a smile.

Recently, I posted a photo of what I looked like in the 90's.

One of my readers and twitter friends (VanMacGuy on Twitter) asked me what I looked like in the 80's.  We agreed to swap photos.  Unfortunately, I have yet to find the right box with my photos from the 80's.  When I do, I'll post one of myself.

In the meantime, VanMacGuy was nice enough to allow me to share with you his photo from the eighties.

I love it!

If you'd like to send me a photo from your past too, along with permission to post it on 24, I'd love to see it.

In the meantime, a huge thank you to VanMacGuy for bringing a smile to my day!

    HAhahahahha! That is a GREAT photo! I was either working or pregnant in the 80s. Not remotely as fun….Oh wait, I guess I could send you the photo in which I am the only woman amongst 25 new sales reps at sales training, black suit, red and white striped shirt, long hair clipped back, smile of total innocence on my face, despite having had to go to a strip joint in a strip mall to prove my cajones that week:).

    if I sent you a picture of me in the eighties, it would just be regular me, but with a rolled up dollar bill up my nose!

    Oh my goodness, what a head of hair. I thought it was a wig but he looks way too authentic. Back in the 80s I never went the way of Madonna lace and 80s hair. Instead I went to college and went preppy, but since I missed out on all that I’m thinking I might wear neon, lace leggings, a black miniskirt and tease what’s left of my colored hair (what gray hair?). I could still rock it, ha! I think my kids would say differently.

    Hi all. Nope, not in Whitesnake, but it was inspired by The Cure and Poison.
    No, don’t do it any more. Nope, not a wig, all mine. It’s a much different colour now, given that I’m 30 years older I suppose that’s to be expected. And it’s not as long either. But I still have it all, not lost a single one.
    I enjoyed being featured on here thank you. I’m on Twitter as @vanmacguy if you ever need someone to follow.
    Cheers.
