This is the best friend in the world anyone can ever have. Her name is Karen and she is my best friend. Karen and I grew up together since the age of 5. My nickname for Karen for so many years now is "Old Bag". Her's for me is "Brat"!. Gee, I don't know why??? We tagged each other with these nicks so many years ago now that we answer to them if we hear them anywhere...Karen's other nickname is "Ms. Fix It". There is nothing she can't fix or make. Wanna make Karen a happy camper on her birthday or X-mas? Buy her a power tool! I think the only thing she doesn't have is a jackhammer...and she would probably find a use for it too. In her spare time you can always find her re-decorating, building something, or doing arts and crafts. She is amazing when it comes to murals and such on walls.
Well, here we are, the gruesome foursome! Karen's sisters and I. Debbie, Me, Karen, and Laurie (aka Lo). Aren't we just the cutest things???? We were around 7 years of age.
Granny and Tinisha (Peanut).
Karen at my mom's 71st birthday bash! 1996.
Clowning around! This pic was taken in about 1994. Karen was the clown that year at my annual b.b.q. What a riot. Only problem was, she was sensitive to the makeup. Geez, was she red and itchy after a whole day of this....
Look at Me!! I'm a STAR!! heheh, Karen in my towel and my wig! Taken in around 1976/77. We had been out in the rain jumping in puddles...We just never grew up.... Love the boots...(Now you can kill me, and probably will!)
Send in the clowns!!! I was laid up this particular Halloween with casts on both legs so Karen, her then husband (on the right) and bro-in-law came to entertain me. This was taken about 1976/77. Karen doesn't look the same now...but oddly enough, her ex still looks much the same!! lol hmmmm, do I see a theme starting in these pics..?? See below for just one more pic!
This is me actually, the one being entertained. Boy, was I ever big boned then!! And they made poor little defenseless me dress up like this. Tackled me, they did! Sick puppies! This one is for you kiddo...enjoy the laugh on me...ya old bag! Happy Birthday!!!! By the way, you will always be older than me....*snicker**snicker*
