All these photos were taken when I was around 17. The two in the strapless, floaty dress were taken just before I went to the prom. The others were taken by a family friend, Dr. K. Hirsch.
With the above ‘invitation’ to the Prom, I found a little note: “On Thursday, May 26, Mike Katz and I went to the Junior-Senior prom, the dinner was nice. I think I looked extremely good but my feet hurt. Mike liked Heidi at that time so danced with her mostly. Otherwise, I had fun.”
One thing about getting old, you can look back at yourself (via photos) and realise you weren’t at all unattractive! All during my childhood, and teen years I believed that I was ‘funny looking’. I obviously wasn’t ‘pretty pretty’ or ‘beautiful’ but I think I wasn’t really too bad!
And, by the way, my hair in the prom photos was held in that strange position by at least one full tin of hairspray!
