Wordless Wednesday - Circa 1986


Explanation in the first comment!

35 comments:

  1. This one needs an explanation ... taken sometime in 1986 (my feeble mind forgets exactly when) when my dispatch team was being broken up due to seniority bids in the Command Center at the Stockton Police Department.

    For those who read regularly, my good friend Miz Cyn is the one on the left in the snazzy sweater (she was pregnant with her third child) and I would be the one in the middle with the, er, 80's hair. The others are Chris with her arm around my shoulder, Kathy to my right, and Dianne down by the cake.

    We were quite the team and I hated going to another shift and leaving these people behind. Matter of fact, it was the beginning of the end for my time at SPD. Just goes to show that the old adage of "if it ain't broke don't fix it" really rings true.

    Oh, and for the record, I thought I was FAT in this picture. Sigh ... to be that size now!

  5. Before I opened the comments I was guessing which one was you and I was right! Yeah.. those bangs just scream 80's.

    I have a ton of pictures where I said I would never get fatter than THAT. Hah. :)

  9. Sigh-we were so young! "Indeed; the Last Ride of Linda/Cyn and OUR Immortals" (with apologies to Doc Holladay/Val Kilmer and to whomever wrote the dialog in "Tombstone").

    DISPATCHERS ROCK!

  18. I had the same hairdo in the 80's! It's strange how you look back at old photos and see you weren't fat at all!! Those were the days! Great photo.

  20. Isn't it funny how our ideas of "fat" change as we get older? (and heavier).

  27. Not participating in WW this week... You thought you were fat? Why do all of us women do that. You are not fat in the photograph. You look very skinny to me. What a nice shot of a group of friends. Too bad that had to mess with something that wasn't broken. They broke it!!! Have a happy WW. :)

  31. Great photo. It is great to see some pictures from the 80s. It is strange to think about how long ago that was.

  32. Great picture! I think it's funny when I look back at old pictures and wish I could be that size again, when at the time I thought I was fat.
