    First Middle School Prom

     
    1969. I had alwaysbeen fashionable. My Maternal GrandMother made sure I was always clean and neat (I didn't own a pair of jeans until I could afford to buy them myself from the profits from three paper routes).
    When I got my first real job in the summer of '68, this is the kind of suits we wore to proms and parties. It cost the increadible sum of $22.00! I dressed straight out of "Blacksploitation" movies for the next two years until I became a "Hippie". Since I was a Bass player in a,believe it or not, Rock band "Smoker" I had a rep to maintain. Check out the shoes. Man, we were HOT!
