Ye Ol’ Then & Now
Here are some pictures of me showing my “progression” over the years.
high school yearbook age 18
aboard my first ship age 18 closing on 19
in Navy age 20 (that is Lucy in the corner, but she is covering the picture of my girlfriend who originally appeared there). This is an oil painting of a photo I posed for.
in Guam while in Navy age 29 (a few months before I got out)
at our wedding age 39
at Lakeside Park in my early 50s
Parkview employee I.D. age 57
age 63 or 64 (can’t remember when I joined)
in Grabill age 70
I thought you might find these last two pictures interesting. It is Lucy when she was 14 and me when I was 18. We didn’t know each other then. She was 28 when we became pen pals. We married when she was 29. I used to be taller than her, but I am shrinking in height as I age. I think Lucy was a good looking gal, but sadly she grew up thinking she was ugly because her older brother used to tell her she was. Kids sure can be cruel and words can do so much damage.
And here is our wedding picture.
me age 39, Lucy age 29
BTW, the reason I don’t care to go to high school class reunions is there are too many old people there. LOL
