My 5th grade graduation dress

***Insert Music - - "Memmmoorieeeeees......light the corrrner of my miiiiiiiiind......."***

Up in the attic, among the owls, country blue geese and old china, we found it. Unstained, not too smelly, not ripped or worn out:

The year was 1971 but you could have probably guessed that :) I am the youngest of 4 kids and shopping with just me and mom was rare. And shopping at the mall was even rare-er!! But there we were, in the city, and it was all about me and my dress. Add a pair of white patent leather mary-janes and I was on top of the 5th grade world.

Good times.

Maybe some day, if I have a grand-daughter, I can convince her to wear it for a picture.
