When Nature Attacks

I was going through a box of very old photos the other day and came across these hilarious pictures. Most of my friends and family know I absolutely hate getting my picture taken. I am the least photogenic person in the world!

This is when a brown Christmas tree was attacking my head. The year - 1983 and I believe it was Spring. I know that because I didn't wear my hair like that the next year of school. Or ever again, for that matter. Except when we had an 80's party and I put my hair in hot rollers and it fell right back into place! It was like muscle memory, Dude!
This next photo I was being attacked twice at the same moment!
First, a big red shirt was attacking my torso! Then a bunch of lorikeets attacked me. One even tried to make a nest on my head! Though I don't think it had to make much of an effort to make a nest, it looks like it was pre-fabricated. Don't you miss banana clips?

Now the only thing in nature that is attacking me is age. It's getting harder to pull off 29.

I showed my teens these pictures and they both said, "You look the same. Just different hair." They were so nice to not say I looked heaps older or bigger! So, friends that have seen me within the last few years, do you think they look like me?

I love the tree hair. Why did you give it up? Clean ozone is overrated. It does look like you. You did the 80's well. :)

Let me try this again - I wish they had an 'edit' button.

You really did do the 80's well! I love the hair ;o) So that is what your natural color is . . .heehee
I could use a few of those red shirt - they'd cover a lot. Still the cute, infectious smile - you haven't changed!

Hey. How are ya? I just got back from Down Under and am looking forward to having the time to catch up on your doings. I wanted you to know that you made my list of top blogs, and I added a feed to you at the Rodeo. It shows a thumbnail pic and quick blip from your most recent post so my other readers can check in on you easily. I'll talk to you soon
