Back In My Day, way way way back . . .
Pooker went out to the homecoming dance for a local school with a friend from youth group. My DH and I were very surprised at the elaborate plans that now go into the evening of the dance. I feel so old saying this but "back in my day . . ." when a young lady was picked up by her escort her mom and dad took pictures. It was understood that they had to share copies with his family as soon as that roll of film was used up and developed and that might not happen until Christmas. The couple might meet up with some friends for dinner and then everyone would head off to the dance. We would leave the dance when it was over and go home. If you get the idea that I was a real fuddy-dud you might be correct. (My favorite spot was Rich and Charlie's. . . it was an Italian Resturant. This was the type of place that we didn't look out of place being dressed up and yet it wasn't too fancy. mmmm... I can taste the Chicken Marsala now.)
Times have changed. I can not believe the drama that goes into the dances these days. There are so many details . . .the limo, photo shoots at a park, elaborate dinners, and numerous after parties. My goodness you would think it was the Oscars. We are glad that she has the opportunity to spend the evening with her friends and we will treasure the pictures. I must say that Pooker did look like a movie star! You looked beautiful Pooker Baby!
