In honor of the first day of Spring - just for fun - let's upload a pic of us when we were teens or twenties or whatever. But, hey, no naked baby pics please LOL!!Laughing

To get the ball rolling, here's a pic of me from my mid 20s. A friend was studying photography and experimenting with those Sepia toned photos so I volunteered to be a guinea pig.

There I am around 1971 at age 12 or 13. Of course sitting at my model work bench. Funny thing is that I still have all the items at the back of the table!

Ernie, Love the hair, definitely 80's style, and from your avatar you still have it all, and there was me thinking it was a pic of some great chief.

OK Here's me circa 1988 as a "Sparkette" with my clunky safety glasses, tool pouch and oh so stylish coveralls troubleshooting a Lincoln welding control panel. I still have that tool pouch and most of those tools, too.

re: Springtime - Time to share our "springtime" youth pics!

Hi everyone;

I don't have any pics that I can scan, (my sister has them all). This was taken at a studio for
business card mugshots for professionals, in 1994 or so. I was about 50ish.

Image Not Found

I'll try to find some older ones after I unpack all this junk (I just moved into this apartment).

Just stayin' warm....

Not Sing Sing, but it sometimes sure felt like a prison in there when it got hot - welders throw off a ton of heat - whew!!! And the big resistance welders drew so much current that the 4/0 cables jumped and bucked when they fired. Sure glad I wasn't paying the electric bill!

The numbers are the sizes of the coveralls. We traded them in once or sometimes twice a day if you really got a nasty job. Welding areas are DIRTY! Ugh!

Oh how well I know, Theresa! I spent the first 12+ years out of high school as a welder/assembler. I still like to strike an arc when the need arises.

Brilliant thread, Theresa.

TPFKAMI (The Person Formerly Known As Mrs ikeyPikey) liked to threaten to show this one to the kids if I ever gave them a hard time about any of their choices.

c1972, only forty years ahead of my time on the hat.

Taken from a team photograph of the Blundell's School, Tiverton, cricket 2nd XI. I was 17, and did not do smiling in those days (nor polished shoes, by the looks of it).

Just one question, Bob.

In that bottom photo - the "Thinker" photo - what were you thinking?

"Why, oh why, didn't I take the BLUE pill?"

(For the uninitiated, that's a reference to the Matrix, not Viagra).

In the second police academy I went to we had a Marine Drill Sergeant as an instructor. He seemed pleasant enough to me, but he did toss us into a small building full of tear gas!
