Ritu over at But I Smile Anyway asked her readers to post an embarrassing photo last week. I told her that by the time you get to be my age, you’ve destroyed all the bad and embarrassing photos. Then I had to go look and I found at least one that I really dislike. (Well, I found more than one but I’m not sharing the REALLY embarrassing ones!) So I figured I would go ahead and post it but then I would post a couple of not so embarrassing ones to balance out the bad one!

First the embarrassing one that was taken at the beginning of my high school junior year so I was 16. I don’t like it because I am not smiling. The photographer snapped the picture at the wrong time and it looks like I am smirking so I don’t like it. Not to mention that bright orange was never my color!

Then the two “good” ones. The first was taken in December of 1973, just before my 18th birthday. It was at the end of the Junior Miss Pageant, hence the dress, gloves, and rose. The second one was taken just before high school graduation in June of 1974. I’m signing yearbooks outside of class and we were all laughing and goofing off. What I like about these two is that I’m happy in them.
