I shudder to think back to my high school picture-- I think I had glasses like that-- thanks for the memory :-)

I dreaded school photos...and now I have a fear they'll end up on someones blog...

Thanks for the ghost print suggestion, I had a feeling you would know! It's not quite a ghost print, but the 2nd one does work better than most 1st prints as the block's not so wet. It's partly a ghost but not quite!

Well, I didn't wear glasses and long hair wasn't yet the fashion when I was in school.

It's always a hoot to turn on the Wayback Machine! Now, of course, I want to see your picture so start digging and send me a jpeg.

Lucky Dip Lisa:
I doubt that there's any among us who would want our school pictures shown 'round. I don't even have mine anymore ... I wonder what mum did with all of those?

Thanks, Tonya, Vonnegut certainly had a way with quips like these. :)
