Once Upon a Time..

Oh wow.. I dug out this old photo and decided to hang it up.  I must be going thru a *remember when* phase!

The photo is of me when I was young, and my son Thom.. also young!  It was on the Star Trek Cruise where I first met DeForest and Carolyn Kelley.  Tom was dressed for a costume contest. (Thought I'd mention that so you didn't think my son normally looked like that ..heh)

The gown I have on was designed by me and one of the last gowns my brother made. I am happy to say it made an impression on the Kelleys!!

I keep looking at the photo lol..

I was young..

I was thin..

I had lots of hair..

and look at those fingernails!!!  (they were real!)

I guess I am going through a bit of "the old days" since the year is about to change once again.

debi.. sorry, but much as I hate it the bathroom does have a mirror! :o(

Kathleen: it was a grand time to be all good times, I wish I could live it over again

Pamela: I guess it was really a "cocktail dress" since it was knee length..isn't a gown floor length?? I never drew a gown before or after that was for the "captains dinner".. one of those memories you never forget

How cool that you designed your own stuff. Its a beautiful dress and this picture holds a lot of great memories obviously because of that and also your son. Very fun costume!
