Yeah it’s been a while. I know. I’ve been swimming in the murky cesspool of no internet, driving to and fro, maniacal scanning and (as I just discovered) blocked access to my website cause the library wifi in Douglas County, OR is censoring pornography.

And I’m all about the pornography.  Or at least I was. It’s been a while…

Anywho…during a maniacal scanning session recently I came across some pics that I thought I had inadvertently thrown out. I can’t tell you how happy I was to find them (scattered amongst my own photography – some of which is also pornography. Go figure.).

So here I present to you, my grade school class pics from 1974-1979. Kindergarten – 5th grade. Freaking yay!!!!!

Click on the images to get a real close up eyeful!!!


That’s me on the bottom left



I’m next to the bell in the pic



I’m in the blue gingham on the lower right


In here I’m in the overalls and green and orange striped turtleneck. See how tall I already am?


In this pic I’m in the back row in the same green and orange turtleneck. I was one of the tall kids back then, I swear! But I somehow stopped growing and now I’m one of the short adults.








Im in the brown cowl neck sweater on the left. Next to the kid in yellow.


And as a special treat here’s a Neato plate I made in 1st or 2nd grade.



Ok that’s it for now. Sorry if there’s anything weird with this post. The formatting or pic size. I’m doing the best I can with what I gots.

And Happy Valentine’s Day to everybody!!!!

Mary Cullen's Christmas Cookies

A little while back I posted some ads from a 1953 Portland Oregon newspaper. One of the ads was for Mary Cullen’s freezer school. When I first saw it I not only thought that it was hilarious but I was also psyched cause I knew I had seen something from Mary Cullen before. Long ago, […]
