18 on the 18th

Do you remember what it felt like to be 18? Some of you are not that far from that age. I remember feeling like I could conquer the world. And in some ways....I have!

Other dreams...have gone by the wayside. Or have been replaced with new dreams. But for what it's worth.....here it is. Its a little grainy...since it was taken from a newspaper article. But it's me!

Angel, when I was 18, I knew I could conquer any anything that arose. on the night of 19 Dec 1953, I hit the deepest dispair that any man should ever experience and on that same day the highest elation any man could attain.

I should put in my blog and maybe someday I will.

Highpockets...you should put that in your blog....because now I'm curious!

Feel the same way angel! BTW you are gorgeous and look identical to my cousin Jennifer. If you were 5 years younger I would say BUSTED! LOL. The dimples the dark hair everything! Maybe we are related! LOL
Anyway love the pic

Wouldn't it be fun to find out we're related! But...no, I'm not Jennifer....actually I would be happy to be 5 years younger! lol

I like what I see there cutie, you know that your eyes are still the same as they were in your high school picture, I sure like the way they look.

And they say the eyes are the windows to the soul. I know that mine find it hard to hide the emotion that I'm feeling at the time!

When I was 18 I was invincible, but then I never grew up or out of that stage. No one has ever been able to convince me otherwise. lol

Hmmmm....not sure I recognize anything but the lips! A very pretty girl you were then, Angel, but then most women don't get really BEAUTIFUL and sexy until they pass that 40 something mark!

Have a GREAT weekend!


angelofmercy5 replies on 3/19/2006 11:56 am:
Thanks horny! I'm glad you think women get more beautiful as they mature! And...I feel kind of invincible too!

Question: How much hairspray did that take?

angelofmercy5 replies on 3/19/2006 11:59 am:
Till...I really hated hairspray! Still do really! But, I used to sleep in rollers every single night of my life! Ah...the things we do in the name of beauty! lol

Yes I agree with tillerbave you were adorable. I remember those days as well and yes though I could conquer the world. Again like you I have but in other ways let dreams slip. The funny part is I the other day found a picture of me when cleaning up of me in highschool. Oh man don't you wish you can forget those days sometimes.

Be Good to those around you!


angelofmercy5 replies on 3/19/2006 12:00 pm:
Blade...I don't know. Sometimes, I'd like to relive those days...other times to forget them! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

It's great to look back when we were 18. All that free spirit and no cares or worries. When I look at my senior high school picture, is/was that really me in that picture? Have I really changed?...that much? I need to spend more time with that care free spirit again.

angelofmercy5 replies on 3/19/2006 12:01 pm:
Luvpiano...I need to spend more time with that free spirit too! Maybe that should be our motto from here on out.

When I saw the pic I thought, "I bet she's just a few years younger than me." Yep. The flips from back then are better than carbon dating for timeline placement, lol.

And you were absolutely adorable, too.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

angelofmercy5 replies on 3/19/2006 12:21 pm:
1hotwahine...yes...the flips do date us, don't they? But they were so much fun! Hated sleeping in the rollers every night though! lol

Goddess...in some ways, I wish I could go back to those days and have a "do-over". But then I wouldn't be the person I am today...or have these beautiful kids and grandkids. I would LOVE to learn ballroom dancing!

Now you got us all thinking, and it seems we all had different memories and yet they have a string tying them all together like one same story.. Maybe we all have the same dreams and wishes when we turn 18?

Hugs N Kisses, and lots of Butterflies....

angelofmercy5 replies on 3/20/2006 4:09 pm:
My favorite ladies....I think that our dreams are maybe tied together. Kind of neat, huh?
