38 years of wedded bliss!
No this isn't me, but it may as well have been. Yes, today's my wedding anniversary. I searched this morning to find a wedding picture, but I guess the album is in Maryland. But, it won't take much imagination to envision what I looked like on my wedding day! I wore a double-knit, polyester, mini skirt with matching top that I had made myself ... and wedge heels. My hair was mid-way down the middle of my back, blonde, and kind of wavy. Jim wore some kind of sports jacket ... which I know was also polyester.
You youngsters won't understand when I tell you that polyester was a blessing ... it was like wearing upholstery fabric, though ... but it didn't need ironing! One of my jobs at home growing up was to iron the dress shirts my dad wore to work. You just don't know ... ignorance is definitely bliss in this case!
This was before that fabulous fabric, Quiana! Or, maybe Quiana was out and I just couldn't afford it! Now I'm doing your research for you!
I'm sure my polyester mini skirt still exists in some dump somewhere since the fibers never break down. I think it must have been a byproduct of the space program ... along with teflon, freeze-dried foods and Tang!
