Wordful Wednesday - Yesteryear & Silly Faces.

I know several of you have done this already and I have to but I have never posted them.. Until now. Again, I was really excited about my Wordful Wednesday Post but I forgot my camera at school. This time I did actually grab my camera bag. It just didn't have my camera in it.. Great huh? Since I love to take part in these fun little linky things.. I searched and searched for a picture I wanted to use but couldn't find one that just jumped out at me . So I decided to yearbook myself. You guys should try it to. It is such fun and let me tell you .. a lot of laughing is involved. This would be me in 1960. And this is what I would've looked like in 62. These pictures crack me up. I look like my dad in a wig. I have got to post a picture of him back in 62 so you guys can see what I am talking about.. Of course he was sportin' a flat top and not a mop of curly hair.. but still..I just need a 5 o'clock shadow and that would so be him...


Although, looking back on yesteryear was much fun. I think I will head back into the here and now. Where people and technology have come a long way.. and pictures show a truer since of who one really was..

See what I mean..lol. One of my little guys took this of me at work last year. He said, "Teacher make a silly face", so I did. Afterwards when he looked at the picture he said, "I really wish you would've made a silly face, it would have been much funnier". I then asked him, "well what kind of face does this look like to you" he said, "Silly teacher, it looks like your face." Kids, you gotta love em!

Happy WordFUL Wednesday, and thanks for dropping by my WordLESS Wednesday (with a few words). Your link was typoed, so I had only a little bit of trouble finding you, but I made it then fixed your link. Blech... sorry about your salmonella experience last year. I've never actually had a food-borne illness, but I'm paranoid of them. That's why Erica gave me those Giant Microbes for my birthday. She's so funny. *smirk*

I had the same problem this morning, no picture to post. So then I tried to post a video of pictures that I made for my parents but it's taking a very long time to process on you tube. Luckily my BFF sent me an email with a pic. so that's what I used!

I wanna do the yearbook thing but I don't have a good shot of myself. Guess I should work on that!

Jamie @ Baldwin Bungalow said...

Those are hysterical! It looks like you actually did your hair that way and posed for the pictures!

I LOVED your story about the kid who walked into B&BW with his mom and said that he loved that place because it smelled like his teacher. How SWEET is that!? I have to tell you that I walked into an elevator as a couple of women walked out and I TOTALLY got a whif of my kindergarten teacher. I didn't even realize she had a smell until I smelled it! Then man I kind of wanted to cry.

Mrs. S said...

Mama Kat had these up and now they are everywhere. I may try to do that...maybe.

thanks for stopping by. I don't know what my husband thinks of me posting those pictures of him....he's not home. :) *shrug* He is a good sport, though, he won't mind.
