A Foto For Friday

With my recent birthday and a lot of blogs with back to school related posts I decided on this photo for my “Foto for Friday”. Can’t believe my 1st year at school was 40 years ago!


Have a wonderful weekend and run safe!

What an absolutely smart looking suit. You ever notice we never dress our kids up anymore?

I think I know that kid ... didn't you throw pencils on the floor in front of the teacher's desk to look up under her skirt? ... no wait a second, that was the kid beside you. You were the kid that nobody could catch at recess.

Cute kid, how'd you grow up to from that to wear hat brims on the right side of your head?

Great photo Johann - funny how you wouldn't be able to see many children in a sportcoat and tie anymore.

Hi Johann,
You were such a cute little boy! I think that your son looks alot like you:) I was going through some of my old childhood pictures too....I also pulled out my first grade school picture:) It is fun to look back....it brings back special memories.

I hope that you have a fantastic weekend!

Congrats on the last terrific rail run. On that day I was enjoying thesun of Tunisi. Lucky you, my first day at school was 48 years ago!

OMGosh - the best photo ever. Look at that. Completely awesome.

The Green Girl said...

Okay, that photo does rock. Too freakin' adorable!

Loving that suit. You look so prim and proper.

Johann-

Kathleen was wondering if you speak Dutch, by chance? Her whole family is from Holland and supposedly many Dutch speaking people live in your area as well. Just curious...

Char said...

Was that your school blazer? And they made you wear it right from the beginning of school? My youngest has only just gotten his first blazer and he's in his last year of school

Natalia said...

Oh this brings back memories! Nice choice for a Friday pic.....so we wore uniforms too - stripey blazers and HATS...that was my end....but what to do, we had to suck it up and wear them.

Lesley said...

Thanks for sharing! How fun that you still have this picture!

misszippy said...

That is such a cute picture! And rest assured, you do not look a day older now...

Natalia said...

Johann, I could not resist posting this....when I first saw your pic, I immediately thought of a tv series - I am sure you know it too...but just in case you forgot, enjoy!
