My mother has posted some photos across on her blog in response to me saying that I wished there was a photo of me and Sushi. Here we are in about 1977. It is 8th grade graduation for me and Sushi. The line up is Sushi, me and Sally in our front garden in NE Minneapolis. I wished that I had more grace back then. I see that I still have braces on my teeth but the unfortunate perm that burnt my hair I had earlier in the year has mercifully grown out and been cut off.
When I look at Sally in this photo, all I can think of is her middle child Sam. You can plainly see where he got his sense of silliness and fun!
We really were such good girls. There were episodes of high-spiritedness but mostly we tried so hard to do the right thing and be good.
