Whoa! Check out the Jean De La Bruyere quote at the bottom of the page. Foreshadowing my move to France?
But to fully appreciate the photo you need to see it in the original color version, for only in full color can you appreciate the fashion trends of the time -- trends my parents obviously embraced whole-heartedly. Take time to admire the plaid overall-shorts, skillfully paired with knee-high white socks and red and white wingtip shoes. You might also notice how effortlessly I pull-off the white mock-turtleneck, a staple in any hip, two-year-old's wardrobe. Ah yes, the 1970s -- when fashion had a little, shall we say, flavor.
A big thanks to Ron Graybill for sending the photo to me. And a little shout-out to Adrian and Torsten who are in this picture with me.
