Re: Dejavu book covers

There are times spotting the duplicate covers versus just the similar poses etc. reminds me of my favorite game from my PBS childhood: "one of these things is not like the other" - or one of those "find what is different in these two pictures" puzzles from family restaurant menus. :D I get a bit too...

Madeleine, there ya go. :)

Misfit, the one in red has a sharper and more upturned nose and mouth, both. The upward tilt of the lips is very different.

The trim is a riot; that's the ball fringe on my vintage (1970s) bedspread!

Re: Who remembers these clothes?

MLE, when I met my dear ex husband, he was in a band and onstage - wearing striped. spandex. pants. :shock: I believe he was wise enough never to wear them again, even without my hiding them.

Re: What's it doing outside your window?

It's been really lovely in the midatlantic for the past few days; certainly warm, but sufficiently breezy, skies blue instead of white and thick with July humidity. Loving it; I even had a meeting outside Wednesday. We hardly wanted to go back inside!

Re: Dejavu book covers

Mythica, I always sort of pictured the West in atmospherically faded sepia tones ...

Also ... WHAT is that pink acetate monstrosity dress? Civil War? Holy frijoles.
