With my sister, Judi
West Frankfort, Illinois
I appear to be distracted by something. Or, perhaps I was just practicing the ‘aloof-in-the-face-of-the-paparazzi’ attitude that I still hope may come in handy some day. The jaunty cap shows my sense of style was far ahead of its time; envisioning hip-hop fashions still more than half-century away.
It is impressive that I could stand with such nonchalance on the bumper of a car at age 16 months. I don’t know much about early childhood development but, to my impartial eye, there is something prodigy-like in that.
This would have been a couple of months before Judi’s 6th birthday. The saucy little minx always knew how to pull the focus in a photograph. She was clearly loving the effect of her Toni Home Perm.
