Last Silly Post - I Promise!


But, hooray, I found my pictures. Oh, great, you say? Last one, I promise!

The Mallard Duck. My mother really did love me, but you'd never know it judging by some of these dance costumes! And check out those itty bitty bangs. What's with that? LOL

I remember in our recital, we were dancing in a V formation. We're ducks, remember. The lights were flashing and there was a thunder sound on stage to go with this mallard duck music. We all had to do these turns, and the hook on the end of my wing caught in the next dancer's tutu. Well, I froze and she twirled and twirled and twirled. And the rest of the performance I had her entire tutu flying around the stage off the end of my wing, and she was tutu-less. It all came off of her! LOL.
What you can't see in this picture is this ridiculous dark green satin cap that looks like a swimming cap, with a white thing that went around your throat. I guess it was supposed to look like a mallard's head. Yeah, right, a mallard with bangs!
Dad had an old movie camera and caught the whole thing for posterity. Mom was mortified. (hee-hee) Don had those old movies, but I guess they all burned in his house fire. Just as well. (rolls eyes here)

Okay, back to the present. Quack!

Did y'all have Miss Glenda for your dance instructor? The mental picture of her tutu on your wing is hilarious.

Oh no! WHAT? No more silly posts? No, no, no Vicky! You MUST have silly posts! I live for silly posts! Don't you go getting all serious on us now! Love the photo! I think the bangs may have been some Audrey Hepburn thing maybe. Hey, it could have been worse! You could have been a loon! Think about what we'd have to say then! LOL!

Thanks for posting the mallard duck photo. I think you look rather cute, especially those bangs.

That is too funny! Hey, if it makes you feel any better, my mom did my hair up in all sorts of weird ways too, and she still has the pictures! The worst was my fourth grade picture, she had set my hair on rollers, teased it up to the sky, with little tiny bangs, and then she put a bow right in the middle of my head like Rose Marie! Did I get a rash of teasing from my classmates that year!

Oh, that's really cute. The story is hilarious. Sounds about normal.
