Still Hot (or Not!!!)

I changed my font at pYzam.com


Babs published a lovely photo of herself when she was 22 on her blog the other day which reminded me that recently Pinky emailed me with a photo he'd come across when I was about the same age, which he entitled "Who is this?". So here it is:



Now why on earth would I have scraped my hair back like that when my forehead is as big as the rest of my face? Well, this was taken on a holiday I went on with my friend Julie and her family. I remember it was hot, much like it is now. I see I liked wine even then! I had a "thing" for the photographer but fortunately woke up to how stupid I was being when he realised I had a "crush" on him and tried to "cash in". My friend Julie had Marfand's Syndrome and died of organ failure a few years after. Before she died she got married to a man who also had health problems. I think the marriage was happy but it wasn't easy.

I miss you Julie.

Have a great weekend efurrycat :)

I'm sorry about your friend Julie.

Wishing you a happy weekend also ...

You look hot! And I don't mean the weather.

That's very sad about your friend.

That's a nice photo ~ We fink blogger automatically redirected the feed for the new blog ~ we can't see the date of the posts in the blog either ~ we fink it's a theme issue and will try to fix it..

Old pictures are always nice and bring back lots of fond memories ~ sorry to hear about your friend's demise from Marfan syndrome ~ may her soul rest in eternal peace...

I think you looks pretty! What is a crush? Is it when the Giant Kitty sits his bee-hind on something and flattens it?

It's amazing what 'beans will do with their furs an' fashions ... We think that your momma looked lovely with her furs piled up like that.

First, my condolences on your friend.

Second, I wish it had been me that had photographed each of you when you were 22. But I had never been to England, then.
