One of my Ravelry/Facebook pals, Janet, does a really cool thing with her Facebook posts. Every once in a while. . . on a Thursday . . . she features a photo that is a blast-from-her-past. She calls it "Throwback Thursdays" and I love it!
I love it so much, in fact, that I'm going to shamelessly copy Janet's really grand idea!
Welcome to . . . Throwback Thursday!
Mrs. Boline's class.
Can you find me?
What amazes me most about this photo. . . is that I can name every single kid in my class! Every one. Jeffrey and Karen and Scott. Donna and Larry and Betsy. Holly. Joey. Casey. Freddy. Victor and Brenda and Tony and Susie. Tracy and Michael. Sonia and Ronald. LeAnn and Dennis and Vicki and Carl and Debra. Greg and Geoff and Douglas. Becky and Jeff and (well, that's me! the chick with the uncomfortable up-do!) and Douglas.
My, we got awfully dressed up for school in 1966-67!
What else do I remember?
Well. It was lucky the photos were early in the day. Because my hair did NOT look like that after first recess! The bobby pins holding it all together gave me a headache. It was hard to jump rope on the playground with an up-do. I was a tangled mess by lunch time.
My best pals in second grade were Vicki and Tracy and Betsy and Victor. Dennis, too, I remember.
I thought Douglas was cute.
I loved Mrs. Boline.
I got an award for perfect attendance in second grade. (It was the only time in my school career that I had perfect attendance.)
I can tell you who was good at jump rope; who was good at jacks. I can also tell you who . . . wasn't.
I can remember each person who was in the "high" reading group.
I can tell you who was my biggest competition in the weekly spelling bee.
I can tell you who stuck a pair of scissor up their nose and had to be rushed to office with a pool of blood at his desk.
I know who threw up in his math book.
But I have no idea whatever happened to any of these kids! Because I moved away in 6th grade and never heard from any of them again.
Throwback Thursday. It's fun to remember.
