The inimitable me in high school. The date suggests I was a junior. Being in orchestra uniform definitely confirms it since I wasn't in the orchestra till I was a junior. (String bass if you must know.) I believe at the time I literally weighed about half of what I did at my peak a couple of weeks ago. Maybe 140 pounds. Possibly 145 soaking wet. Dig that funky moustache (all the facial hair my Dad would allow until I graduated).
Posted because of Joe. So blame him if you swoon for that good-looking-if-70s-bespectacled hunk of hairy man.
Yeah, I dunno where the hair on top went. There is a theory that it migrated to my face, but I have other pictures that put the lie to that; I had facial hair AND a fine thick thatch covering my cranium at the same time after I was 18. Perhaps I should post that picture.
This was probably taken in late 1978. My wife never saw it until last year, when I finally got around to digitizing some old negatives. She took one look and said, "THAT'S MAH MAN!" LOL.
I was a conservative even then. I had a "Reagan in '80" bumpersticker on my car.
