Off topic, but these were lurking a couple of pages later in the same photo album. Leningrad (nče and once again St. Petersburg) in 1985. The world is a little different now isn't it?

Most of the really funny times don't have photographic evidence to go with them.
You will have to settle for cute? DW and I, 1974.

1976, in my newly opened bookstore. Three years later I was broke -- but it was fun while it lasted.

Now those were GLASSES! Mine were pretty large in this 1982 photo, too... I loved that style because I had a larger field of vision with larger glasses. I liked the blue tint, too.

Oh, and I believe "Annie" had just come out - - HAD to have that perm.

My mom started giving me perms when I was 6 years old...that went on for a few years. I swear I can still smell the odor of that perm solution.
