1978
« on: July 24, 2007, 04:15:11 PM »
My mom found a pile of old letters and cards (remember before email when we wrote?) from when I was away at college.  Letters and cards between me and friends (some of whom I haven't communicated with in years), relatives, high school teachers, and others.  Some memorabilia too, newspaper announcements, awards and a couple of photos.  I attach my photo from my college meal card from 1978.  Enjoy.  I have some reading to do. I forgot how much I used to correspond.  Funny how an old pack of papers can revive memories.

If you have a long ago photo you'd like to share, I'd certainly like to see, esp those of you who have shown themselves in the present day!

Nice pic Bill. I would have done ya, but I was still a babe for much of the 70's.

Here's a pic of me from 1972 with my arms around my sister, Maree. Sadly, Maree drowned in our backyard swimming pool only a couple of days after the pic was taken.

Edited to add one from my 21st brithday in July 1987.

sorry, but mine is a decade later than yours... but I'm younger anyway slightly



edit:  found one of a younger "me" which I'd estimate is around the age of 12 (?) featuring semi-gay face.

  The hair, the hair!  I can't decide if it looks like the 60's or 80's.  Nice pic though.  So sorry to hear about your sister.

y'all are so handsome!

Here's my very gay YMCA membership card, which would have been Aug. '83 (a year before the expiration).  I may have been on drugs at the time--I've got that lovely cocaine glow in my eyes:


(edit:  deleted that second picture, because I don't know where that other guy is these days.)

Don't have a pic of those days.  Razorbill, what a fun post! So many handsome lads into men, too.
Getting a little tit action there, Craig?  :D
Sorry about the mishap with Maree, fearless. Good Lord! That made me want to cry seeing her sit on that table with arms around one another.

With my legs, shortshorts were the obvious choice. I never understood why or how the longshort style came to be so de rigueur. But they are so terrifyingly terrible right now that I fear my legs will be covered for the duration.

Thanks for the compliment, David.

A cutie indeed Brent. You could've done me in the late 70's (as you could now), but I may not have been legal then.

I dug out a couple more pics last night.

One from my 23 birthday in 89, when we decided it would be a good idea to fill our unit (apartment) with polystyrene. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but 3 months down the track I kept finding remnants from that night. Don't even bother to ask me how we disposed of the stuff - let's just say, recycling wasn't big back then and it is amazing what you can do with a decent wind and an open window or two.

The other two are from the early 90's. One a morning after shot, the other on holidays in Tassie, the apple isle. Looking back at these pics has made me realised how little my 'look' has changed over the years, other than more wrinkles.

This is how I looked in 1978.



Some of you... and I won't mention any names... *COUGH* Razor! *COUGH* Buckyball!

My God... hot.  Hot.  Hot. 

I now have another to reason to be said that I missed the seventies in addition to my long-standing "cheap Vivienne Westwood and getting to hang out with Derek Jarmman and the Ramones" reason.

A cutie indeed Brent. You could've done me in the late 70's (as you could now), but I may not have been legal then.

I dug out a couple more pics last night.

One from my 23 birthday in 89, when we decided it would be a good idea to fill our unit (apartment) with polystyrene. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but 3 months down the track I kept finding remnants from that night. Don't even bother to ask me how we disposed of the stuff - let's just say, recycling wasn't big back then and it is amazing what you can do with a decent wind and an open window or two.

The other two are from the early 90's. One a morning after shot, the other on holidays in Tassie, the apple isle. Looking back at these pics has made me realised how little my 'look' has changed over the years, other than more wrinkles.

Steve-
Your older pix have this certain "Southie tough" look that...well...let's just say that I'd love to have a shot at  that tail bone of yours  ;D

But, then, I've always known that you were one lil' looker.

This is how I looked in 1978.

Benj-
You'd have had to put up with Classic Rock and Disco, too, babe. We went from Smoke On The Water to Rumor Has It in about five years. For most everybody, Punk was something to catch up on in the earliest 80s.

I believe this was taken in 1978.
