Oh. My. Gosh. The photos of you in the early decades crack me up. :) Love the hand posing.

Big Love is still on? I thought there was only one series!

Thank you for the romp down memory lane. (don't think I will go there yet- to many plaid polyester pix)

I agree w/you on anyplace warm! And no icy roads.

Strange how you used to be a lifeguard and that is what I do now. Especially since the idea of being a midwife or labor/delivery nurse keeps popping up in my head.

Joan said...

Aw Lisa! How completely adorable!! You still use the same poses.

I'm passing on the Tag but thanks for thinking of me. ;-p

Ah-I am riffling thru my photos now, and plan to do a decade a week thru the month of February.

The saddest thing about your whole entire meme is that I KNOW where the hell Burkburnett IS. And your town. How is it that I never ran into you?? Hey, did you ever go to those quilty things Judy Hopkins had at the quilt shop WAY down south??? The overnighters?

And Bravo on the steeking-did you go for a stiff drink after? EZ says to!
