Yearbook Challenge

I decided to take the challenge and post my yearbook picture. I also found a few other old pictures that I haven't seen in years. At the end of this, I have a little surprise.

C/O 1985



I realized from this picture, that I smile way too much.
This is me in the army, Summer 1987, San Antonio,TX.


This is an AKA line in either Greensboro, NC or Chapel Hill, NC.
I have the slightest idea who these girls are, but I was sort of digging
an AKA at the time, so I took the picture. This was March 1987.


Me, present day, a few extra pounds, a wife and a house full of kids.
Glad to be blessed to keep smiling.



This picture is of one of The Rich House regulars, who just celebrated a birthday on March 29th. Happy Belated Birthday, California Dove (don't kill me for posting). Don't ask how I got the picture, because I don't remember. I have a page full of bathing suit photo's of various young ladies that I went to college with, none of which I have any romantic stories to tell about. I guess I've always been a good guy. At least that's the story I'm sticking to.


My advice to my 17yr old high school self would be:

Have more confidence in yourself. You are better than you think.

Rich, you were a young cutie. The ruffles though. LOL.

I love to see a man with a beautiful smile. It shows he is open. Way too many men frown or have a smirk. Keep cheesing it brings out your beautiful spirit.

I knew you all would get a kick out of those. I was rolling over with laughter.

As far as the ruffles went, it was standard attire for the yearbook pictures, we didn't get to choose.

OMG! Yeah, that is me back in 1986-87. I will try to see if I can have a present day picture to post.

Just for laughs: back on the set @ UF, Rich was known for his "Cookie Grin". Rumor has it, he had a reason to smile.....and that's MY story and I'm sticking to it.
