Flashback Friday


I'm the one on the bottom, doing the lugging. A wee 22 year old......ahhhh. Sigh...... Were any of you out there even born yet?? LOL

How cool! I clicked on the photo to see what year it was and how old I was, to discover that the date of the paper was my 14th birthday. What are the chances?

That's a great photo.

I was 9, and you just rated super cool in my book. I think miming would be really fun.

Ha Ha Ha!!! Cathy, how amazing! Just think, when you were having your 14th birthday party I was performing this crazy dance on the other side of the world. It just brings a big smile to my face to think of it. Happy belated birthday! LOL

Shannon, you youngster! You barely squeak in. Here is a funny fact about me - I was in a mime troupe for 3 years when I was a teenager. Ha ha ha!! Those were the days. Marcel Marcou here we come!

With this dance, Andrea and I made masks for the front and backs of our heads and then choreographed a piece around this back/front, two faced relationship. It was fun - one of my first pieces of choreography.

P.S. I've always wanted a print of this photo (not a newspaper clipping). I wonder if they keep archives that far back. Anyone know?

Great photo! And very cool that it was in the paper! Yep, I as 12 then.

PS. Some papers do, and some donate the photos to libraries. When I was doing an arts project in a nursing home, I managed to get a photo of one of the 80 participants when he was photographed for a paper in Bundeburg when he was 14. He only just described the photo to me and I found it, so fingers crossed, you should be able to get a copy.

Thanks Melanie, it's worth investigating this then. I will do that. Perhaps I can get a real copy. That would be neat. :-)
