My Old Scrapbook

Hello, Bloggy friends. When I was about 19, I started a scrapbook. Going through it today, I found some amusing/interesting things I wanted to share with you.





HERE'S MY SCRAPBOOK. IT'S IN PRETTY BAD SHAPE, BUT HOLDS LOT OF MEMORIES.
I KEPT IT FROM THE LATE 60'S TO THE MID 1980'S

ONE OF MY PRIZED POSSESSIONS.


HIS REAL AUTOGRAPH. I WAS A BIG FAN BACK THEN.


DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER THE WINCHESTER MAN OF THE TV COMMERCIALS?

WELL I GOT TO MEET HIM AND HAVE MY PICTURE TAKEN WITH HIM. A BIG THRILL FOR ME BACK THEN. HEHEHEHE

AT THE FAIR IN THE 60'S,
 I GOT THIS CARD FROM A PENNY ARCADE MACHINE. I LOVED IT EVEN THOUGH IT HAD 1920'S PICTURES.  MY FUTURE HUSBAND WOULD BE A PRINCE! AND I WOULD HAVE ONE LITTLE PRINCE.


WHEN I WAS 19, I SAVED THIS PICTURE OUT OF A MAGAZINE.   THIS WAS WHAT I WANTED MY FUTURE HUSBAND TO REALLY LOOK LIKE. :)

HOWEVER, THIS WAS REALLY MY FUTURE HUSBAND, ALTHOUGH I DIDN'T KNOW IT AT THE TIME. I HAD GRADUATED WITH STEVE, BUT I HAD NEVER ACTUALLY MET HIM. I'D SEE HIM IN THE HALL ALL THE TIME AND MY GIRLFRIENDS WOULD TEASE ME ABOUT HIM BECAUSE THEY KNEW I LIKED HIM.   ONE DAY, I SAW HIS PICTURE IN THE PAPER AND I CUT IT OUT AND PUT IT IN MY SCRAPBOOK. THIS WAS SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE I ACTUALLY MET HIM.


WELL HERE WE ARE PROBABLY AROUND 1982. HOW FAST TIME FLIES. BUT I DO THINK I DID PRETTY GOOD AS FAR AS FULFILLING MY "FUTURE HUSBAND" DREAMS.

Thanks for stopping by to see me today. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.

That is so neat that you cut the article out about your husband before you knew him! and I kinda think he looks like the husband you were dreaming about with his feet up in the chair! Dreams do come true, good for you.

I love your scrapbook, Donna. The ticket stubs is awesome. The best part is the newspaper clipping of your future husband. Just wonderful. By the way-I do remember the Winchester Man.
