Way Back When-sday


It's prom time and more limos are around than usual. Living in a town with a couple of destination restaurants in it, limos are not an unusual sight ... But this time of year, things really pick up between the weddings and proms.

For my senior prom, my parents rented my date and me a Buick Electra Park Avenue with a moon roof. We were styling -- despite my pink bow tie and cummerbund. The picture above was taken by her parents when I arrived to pick her up.

The prom was at the Hotel du Pont's Gold Ballroom, a little too fancy for my taste. But I guess it's supposed to be one of those memorable events in life. But to be honest, I don't remember much about the prom itself.

UPDATE: Check out these old prom photos from the St. Pete Times.

You guys looked great! How cool of your parents to rent you a car. That is quite the dress too - way to go for going along with the pink bow tie!

Cute...but when I read it the first time, I mentally added a period after..."My parents rented my date." Ha ha.

Mara ... Thanks for recognizing the sacrifices we guys make just so we can help you ladies look color coordinated to all your accessories.

TLC ... Luckily I was fortunate enough to have a date already. They only had to rent the car.

Speaking of way back when, Happy Birthday (a little early)!
