I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Remember Whensday - Prom 1970


I went to my first prom when I was a sophomore and boyfriend Paul was a senior. I remember that we’d had a little tiff the day before prom but we went anyway. I had my hair done, teased into a birds nest. Mom sewed my dress. At dinner I didn’t know whether to take my gloves off or which piece of silverware to use for what. Thank goodness a teacher at our table saw my dilemma and without saying a word provided the examples I desperately needed.

And this was Paul’s ride.

Sally from The (Mis) Adventures of Karl and Sally has started a new meme where the past is remembered through sharing old family photographs and this is #3. I love the idea and hope you will too. So join the fun by clicking here.

Gaelyn, isn't it lovely when we are young and naive, when someone notices our dilemma and silently helps us out? If you remember nothing else of note of the evening, surely that is a gem to store in your jewel box of memories.

Bummer, I must not have done something to save my earlier comment.

But I did say cool pictures. I don't even want to think about my prom, much less look at the picture. LOL.

I love your dress. You look lovely! It's so much fun to take a peak into the past!

Louise said...

I love this idea, too! (But I'll probably just watch instead of play due to not being able to add another thing.)

Love the prom photo, but really what I love the most is the teacher who helped you by example. How very kind!

What a great memory... and a neat meme theme (I might have to go check that one out)!
