Janean, unless that cow had a name, I'm guessing you weren't one of those d__m hippy vegetarians!  Smiley Happy 

 


Actually, all of our cows (steers, to be technical) had names. And that is why I no longer eat meat. I always knew the name of whatever was in the freezer. Unsettling...

Janean, your smile is an instant give-away.  Yep, that is def. you.

@Virginia:

 

“Yes, Ravindra, I was once young and my now-white hair black - as I said, those were the days.”

 

Oh, come on, Virginia. That isn’t what I meant. Smiley Embarassed

 

I wasn’t sure if that was just a random picture from the hippie era.

 

Gosh, I see the resemblance now! Smiley Happy

 

And hey, white hair or not, you are still a great looker! Smiley Very Happy

 

BTW, tell me more about the okras.

 

ETA:

 

I wish I had my old photos.

 

Lost most of my prized possessions (photos, trophies, etc.) in a termite attack when I was in the US … but that is another story.

 

I regret having been so careless about my photographs.

 

Thank god, my daughter now has the few photos that didn’t get lost.

Not a clue where pics might be; I've moved too often.  Put imaginations to work -

 

Surfer girl thru and thru.  Long straight blonde - usually wet.  Very, very tan.  Way too young to have passed for even an approximation of an adult when I more or less ran off to San Francisco.  That is, had I been brave enough to go topless as was the norm.  The stuffing would have filled a Kleenex box. I was either too broke to have purchased a padded bra or lacked the foresight. 

 

I wore a lot of flower tiaras though ....

Virginia, a similar tale to the one Ravindra shared.  Not mugged or anything but the proverbial evil stepmother who trashed all my memories - scibblings, photos, memorablia, etc. - when I was in college.  

 

The many moves since then have meant I always have my daughter's memories packed and stored as FRAGILE. Do Not Touch -

Oh ... well that's just sad, Wendy.  Hard to believe anyone could be capable of doing that to someone's memories.

@ Virginia:

 

Did your post get zapped?

 

“Ah ... the okra. First I drew, colored and cut them out, putting little holes in the tops. I painted my face green, and fashioned a microphone out of an antique wooden spool. Needless to say it took a long time for anyone in my office (still in the B&M world then) to know who or what I was, because only one person recognized what the okra was, and after I ‘interviewed’ her, she put two and two together. Okra it's rather an unknown vegetable to a lot of people, lol.”

 

You have a fertile imagination and plenty of spunk.

 

Okra I do know very well. Thank heavens it was available at the supermarkets in the US. Okra and pita bread was a staple diet for me (in between the tater tots and pizzas).

 

ETA: Edited the post.
