A Haircut & Change 1980-1984


Can you see change when there is change? I think I've changed recently but I doubt it can be seen. My college IDs record a 22 year old freshman who weeks earlier was a sergeant in the Army. By senior year my plans to return to the Army were permanently put aside... I had changed and I could see it. I also needed a haircut.

The first one (yellow) is hilarious, but come on, no popped collars? All of my college ids are terrible; something about posing in front of strangers. I guess that's why I don't model.

Flager College? A beautiful campus in a cool town. I honeymooned there in 1993. Do you have any ghost stories?

Mac-
Popped briefly after college in NYC. Chicago cured me of that PDQ.

Mackintosh- I have loads of ghost stories. But the Lobby East stories are better.

You actually look younger and younger as the years progress in these.

I can't believe you still have all this stuff.

ME- Pizza w/ the boys and a good steamer.

Longwing- I can't believe you don't.

I have the same IDs - but with my own photos of course and 78-82! Love the tan as it gets darker each year! Hmm, only women allowed on lobby east . . . DMW

DMW- I couldn't believe it when Lobby East went Female. The excuse for men on both ground floors, back in the day, was to keep the women folk safe from the townies.

Of course, I remember a couple townies somehow made it up to Mary's Toga party on the 3rd floor.

tintin,
On the day you posted this I happened to be at Flagler touring the campus with our daughter who wants to go there. My only knowledge of the school came from your blogs, which I have been reading for a few years now. Interesting school to say the least. The guys dorm, Lewis House, is pretty bland compared to "Ponce" as the girls call it.
I even tried to place your room from the pictures you posted a few years ago.

Forgot to mention that we traveled to Flagler from Cary NC, right near Chapel Hill. Hmmm maybe we are following your trek from NC to Fl...

No wonder you saved them - they're very cute!

Mom on the Run, I think "woof!" or "yowza!" might be the words you're looking for. And I agree completely with the sentiment.

80 is the computer nerd I'd flirt with to get my homework done; '84 I'm offering to shine his shoes.

Definite and marked improvement over those few years, Tin. You really don't even look like the same guy.
