Ksra..sera of the always informative blog, “You Learn Something New (Almost) Everyday” chose an uplifting word this week. She climbed “up” the ladder of blogging success with this one. The magical word for this week is “up”.
Speaking of Ksra, the two of us went to high school together – you know that right? Well if you didn’t, you’ve just been schooled. I was very, very fortunate enough to meet this crazy chick back when we were going to Lakewood High. We took some classes together including Folk Art Dancing, Spanish and of course..Gym. Ah, gym. I can still smell the gymnasium – a cross between teen sweat and whatever crap they used to wax the floors. Anyway, here are some photos:
I think this was taken from Ksra’s camera, so I can’t take the full credit of the photo. But that was us. We had tennis rackets and we were up for a tennis challenge. That’s me in the classy orange sweatshirt holding my racket up high to appease the tennis gods.
And on the same subject, this is me about to serve that ball. At the time, it must’ve been necessary for me to open my mouth while concentrating on a tennis serve. But whatever worked, right? Again, I think this was taken from Ksra’s camera.
That is all for this week’s word. It was fun finding these vintage photos of yesteryear. They turned up and I couldn’t ignore them.
