Another good one taken by Cindy. That’s me on the left and H on the right in Pleasanton, California where we traveled with the marching band for competition during the autumn of our sophomore year. I’m wearing fishnet stockings with zebra striped glow-in-the-dark Converse high tops. My friends and I were prone to wearing the fishnet/Converse combo from time to time. That was the band trip that H arranged for all the boys in the band to sing “16 Candles” to me on my 16th birthday.
Also in the same photo album a poem/snippit of a poem by Gary Soto that I really liked when it was handed to me by Mrs. Brown, my awesome ninth grade English teacher. Thank goodness I kept it, because I can’t find it anywhere online.
