For the rules of this wonderful Thursday carnival click here.
This week I am definitely bringing it all out. The humiliation factor has reached new levels. And it is off the chart. These two little ‘Fro jewels are from my senior year of high school.
The year, 1986. The school, a VERY, VERY small Christian school. The rules, VERY strict by today’s Christian school standards. The dress code, RIDICULOUSLY strict…keep that in mind!
My family moved to a new city during my 11th grade year. After attending the local public school for just one semester, my folks put us in this VERY small Christian school for my senior year, per our request.
I was a basketball
star player and had previously played this school at my prior high school. So I sort of knew some of my new team mates. Anywhoo, that’s where my photos come in. Each year the faculty played the basketball team for a little roundball fun.
These photos were recently uploaded by my Speech teacher on her facebook account. She is the one wearing the blue. I would be the one in the, ahem, spectacular uniform #33:
Yep, I believe I am wearing a tent. Those would be the VERY conservative Christian schools answer to comfortable basketball shorts. I appreciate the fact my legs were toned and “hot” back then, but who knew?? It sure put a damper on my dribbling between my legs trick.
How’s that for an action shot taken in the 80’s? And you can see, I’m proudly sporting my mullet. I just noticed that if you squint your eyes and look to the right of the person wearing the white coat on the bleachers-- the little boy, that’s my little brother who is now 33. Wow!
That’s it folks, move along now. Go right on over the hostess Kristen’s at We are THAT Family for plenty of Sincerely ‘Fro Me to You fun. I’m not exactly sure how I am going to top this next week.
