Something To Cheer The Irish (And The Rest Of Us)


Given the state of the world, and because this is a long weekend with scarcely anyone around, this picture. It is Bubba Anderson, a (then) girl who went to the same high school as Yours Truly, though a couple of years behind me.

  1. Funny. I recently applied for a job there at the Catholic diocese. I’d never heard of the area before but it looks like a beautiful part of the world.

  2. She looks young. Somewhere mid-70’s, high schoolers stopped looking like adults and looked more like 12 years olds (I was under 20 at the time, so it’s not an age perspective thing). I often wonder why.

  3. She looks good. You not so much.

    I always thought bow ties made the man.
