Bacon’s Show and Tell

Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month.

This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting school.  Now I looked far and wide to come up with some pictures of mom/dad from their school days.  My goodness – we are talking dinosaur age here – snorts with piggy laughter.  But I did find some that I would share with you my friends.  Now trust me, these are good!


The first picture is of my dad.  I’ve talked about it before how he was a big football player in his school days.  He absolutely loves the game.  This is him in his football outfit around his senior year, sometime circa 1981.

Handsome and YOUNG huh?  That was his number – 72.  Of course, he made shoulder pads look fashionable – snorts!  He was what my mom called a jock in high school.  She was the exact opposite.  She was what the football players called a nerd – a smartie – the one the football players went to for help in their studies.  Yep, that was my mom.



This is her picture from graduation way back in 1987.  See that yellow cord?  She was an honor graduate.  Cool huh?  She still has that around the house here somewhere.

So there you go – two pictures from mom/dad’s school time.  Different schools and different times.  There’s no telling though in this small community how many times mom/dad crossed paths while growing up.  All I gotta say is thank goodness they finally did meet up and stay together!
