For my 50th Birthday, one of my best friends in life, Amy, reminded me of how serious I've always been. I think these photo's show it. I can't remember where we were in the above photo, but I'm pretty sure we were at Itasca State Park below. I remember how beautiful the leaves were. It was about this time of year back in 1988.

I  believe the picture below was taken ..on a bus to New York City. I'm not positive...but I think it was a choir trip and I believe I was a Sophomore, so this should have been in 1983.

Ahhhh.....The fun we had running through the halls of Tamarack Hall at Bemidji State University. I still remember I was in room 513. How is that?  And why were we running with a rug through the halls? I have no idea.

The Judds....Oh how I loved the Judds. I blasted Judds music as loud as I could from my dorm room. My poor friends learned to hate or love them. Either way, Laurel and I did our best Album pose as Naomi (me) and Wynonna (Laurel) Judd below.

Amy reminded me how much I loved homework. I'm thinking this must have been one of my worst subjects for me to be so aggressively ready to gag myself. This photo must be fall of 1985.

My friend Beth pictured above, was always smiling as well, but leave the goofing to me.
