Throwback Thursday

This is me in 1989. Ken and I did a drive trip through southwestern France and we had stumbled upon the ruins of a gallo-roman amphitheater in the town of Saintes. I was in my first semester of graduate school at Berkeley and was really into roman ruins.

Me at 29, very close to 30. Not a grey hair on my head. Yet.

I still wear that shirt. And I still have that jacket. The jeans, not so much.

  1. Little did I anticipate in 1989 that I would become a roamin' ruin myself. Anyway, that's a nice portrait. Hold on to that jacket, it's just getting broken in.

  3. I still have a jerkin type jacket of my brother's which I love. He was killed in a car accident in 1958 and he lives on with his jerkin and great memories. Clothes bought nowadays will not last as long! Have a good day Diane
