  1. I quite fancy 1982. But I've always been a bit 'wrong'.

  4. That's very funny. But why doesn't the first one fit with the others?

  5. That first one looks like a backwoods yokel from the Arkansas hills or something.... yikes!

    1966 = talk show host.

    Love the big hair in 1984!

  6. [OT] Donn my main main, brother from winnipeg.

    Guess what... yesterday my flight from Shimla to Delhi was cancelled and we were stuck on a mountain wondering where to go. And I met this fine Canadian gentleman and we chatted about his travels and etc. He and his wife have trekked through Nepal and Bhutan for 10 days...and they are like 60 years old. And there I was whining about climbing stairs and all, when they have the determination to walk the Himalayas!

    And I told them I have buddy in Winipeg, much to their surprise. And they did confirm how cold a place u live in :P It seems in BBC...they mainly show the temperatures of 3 places in Canada and Winipeg is one of them.

    I felt so happy talking to them, reminded me of you. Hope to Ghost Canada one day and well do the rockies wohooo!

    Hugs and it feels so good that we connected on blogs, I love this life. :)

  8. I have never had a yearbook photo, ever. Seriously.

    Now's my chance!

  9. Yes big hair of 84 is the best.
    Great fun to do I bet.

  10. That was so much fun but man, am I ugly! 1974 suits you quite well. Why is that?

  11. I remember 1950, we all looked like mongs then but it was better than the 1920's when we walked about super fast in black and white, boy it was tiring.

  12. you look good every year. *sniggers*

    ReplyDelete
  13. and of course i love you.

    ReplyDelete
  14. !950 and 1998 are kind of hard to remove from the memory :-(

    ReplyDelete
  15. Were you painting happy little trees back in 1982?

    ReplyDelete
  16. You really look good over the years. What amazes me is the evolution of your hairstyle, hahaha.

    I agree with Beast: 1950 and 1998 are unforgettable and unbelievable, but we love you just the same, Donn. :)

  17. your 1984 picture looks like my cousin Tommy. only without the major zit factor or the sketchy, chinese-eyed permafry going on. or the olive complexion or the weak chin.

    in fact it looks nothing much like Tommy except for the hair, kind of, when you look at it in a certain way. and imagine a puka shell necklace. and maybe a colorful shirt.

    never mind.

    Oh yes, 84 is a very good year

    a year of big fuzzy hair

    and a loving forlorn stare

    disco is king

    flairs are back in..

    lots of love to share

    in the year of the hare...

    Where were you in '82?
    I get the feeling that the term Statutory might be applicable.

    Condi went by Candy back in the day. Good times.

    Now now...we've made a lot of progress in the last while let's not start poking the wasp nest again.

    I used a few different photos but soon realised that nobody would have been able to recognise me..
    I seem to be a tad too Zeligish!

    PONITA
    The first one is a little disturbing but all that I had to do was apply a face that was too big for the head. It actually saddens me to think about how different my life would have been if I had looked like that growing up in the wrong part of the world.

    Cool. It is amazing to have connections around the globe. Makes the world a little smaller and more manageable doesn't it?

    MJ
    Yes I look like I didn't miss too many burritos!

    ALLAN
    For heaven sake man...they will need one for your Wikipedia profile. Get 'er done!

    Welcome. We Baby Boomers LOVE nostalgia..even though we are supposed to have discovered living in the now.
    Those halcyon days of Beaver Cleaver were actually rife with strife but we seem to cling to the idea of Pleasantville.
    It's weird.

    ANDREA
    I know that you don't really want me to answer that. Your imprinting coming-into-your-own stage is omnipowerful. The music, events, styles and thingamabobs from those days are hard to scrub.
    Now show me!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!
    You are hilarious..really fast..perfect.

    DOTTEREL
    Welcome. Yes it wasn't. I know that I should have used a younger image but I am too lazy. Actually my real pictures are even funnier.

    MISTI
    You are very kind to say so and don't think that this lavish praise will go unrewarded.
    Now how much money do I owe you?

    BEAST
    In 1950 I was -7 and in '98 I was 41! Crap.
    I keep forgetting how old I am...cue Cher:

    If ah cud turn back Ti-Hime!

    ANNDI
    Bless you my child.

    I was hoping that somebody would give a a shout-out to my main man Bob Ross!

    I haven't aged a bit eh? Remind you of anyone..OK other than Dracula..
    how about a certain Highlander named Duncan McLeod?
    Tha deed saxy Highlander hoo dinna age won wee bit fer hunna 'o yeerz!
    OK not so much.

    NATIONS
    Puka shells are totally back in!
    Actually if I just said that it means that they were in but I just got it so now they are back out.

    One of the luxuries of aging is NOT needing to pay any attention to current styles. What a relief.
    Actually just keep your clothes separated by decade and haul them out every 20 years and presto you're totally in!

    Welcome here..I'd like to know where you're from if you still had Disco in 84. Didn't you get Frampton Comes Alive? That was the antidote.

    ANNDI
    No really, I mean it.

    a nerdy beauty queen reading a book does not make for a cute photo 35 years later
