The Year Was 1973..

My Mom and Step-dad will be celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary in a couple weeks. I was 9 at the time, so no I wasn't born that year!!! It is interesting to look back and see how much I do rmember happening even though I was just a kid. For the PARTY.. I am in charge of putting a musical slide show together of pictures through the years. It has been fun to go through the pictures especially with Carley who has so many comments to make about "my fashion sense"-I inform her i was very hip, groovy, and dressed just like Marcia Brady!(Not sure about the knee socks though with shorts). I will add some of the better pics as I work on the show. I have been procrastinating...and have so many pics to scan. Once I get started I will be obsessive about it!! Just thought I would take some of you back to good old 1973-or introduce it to those who weren't born yet! Funny we were having oil issues then too-but gas was only .40 cents a gallon.
