Fun Photo Friday [Part 4]

Friday's are for looking forward to the upcoming weekend...
They are also for looking back... 
Looking back at one of your favorite photographs and transport yourself to that moment. 
Here's what I would choose...

This is yours truly circa 1987... It was a big year for me... See the lips how they are glistening? That's right Mom let me wear lipstick on picture day... I may look sweet and innocent due to the turtleneck sweater combo but let me tell you I was pretty bad ass. 

This is the year I would be introduced to a band by the name of Bon Jovi...
I would get good grades this year... My reward for that Michael Jackson's "Bad" cassette tape to play in my very own boom box!!! 

I could walk like an Egyptian.

Madonna was my god.

And this year the New York Giants would win their first championship... My Grandpa some how talked my mom into letting me miss a day of school so he could take me to the ticker tape parade in the city... I thank her all the time for letting us do that together. I remember my tiny hand holding his rough wrinkly hand. I remembering him whispering in my ear every player that he saw. I remember him buying me a shirt. I still have it... 


I promise to let up on the posts about the Giants... But this was a memory that had to be shared. :)
Let's see what you got!!! Head over to Page Twenty-Two and play along!!!
