I found this old picture in my shoe box full of old pictures the other day and it made me smile.
First, that's me when I was 9 (I think) wearing my FAVORITE outfit. You gotta hand to me that I had some insanely fresh style going on black bike shorts with lime green stripes on the side coordinated with a lime green tee with shoulder pads, and black stripes on the sleeves. They looked perfect together and they came from different stores, I was so proud of that pairing, I wore that outfit as often as I could.
Second, the dog on my lap was "Slick." He was a good dog, a mutt that my brother got for his birthday from the animal shelter one year. He was a mix of dachshund and shi'tzu (a wiener shit.) He later became my grandma's dog when we couldn't keep him at our house anymore because he bit a neighbor kid (btw the kid had it coming.) I remember whenever I walked him, people would always ask "What IS that Thing?" He had been mistaken for a weasel on many occasions. He was so strange looking, and I have never seen another dog that looks like him. Oh and in the picture, there is also a little stray kitten that I was petting and Slick was sniffing.
The yellow glider I was sitting on still sits in the same place on my grandparents' patio today. I love that glider it's so happy and bright and fun to sit on .
Anyway that's my quick little trip down memory lane. Do you remember your favorite outfit from way back when?
