This is as good as she could do.....

By popular demand.....ok, actually not popular demand, just Michelle's demand, I am posting a picture of me with the bathing suit AND roller skates on that I referred to here. In fact, if you listen closely I think you will be able to hear the chorus of "Love in the First Degree" by Alabama playing in the background. ("Roll On" was a few years later)

My mom is the one who pulled this out of the old photo album and she apparently didn't find the photographic evidence of the Miss America/Roller Derby wear.

Because anyone can wear a bathing suit and roller skates, but it takes someone special to wear a bathing suit, roller skates, crown and sash.

Anyway.....here I am sans the royal wear and without an acceptance speech prepared:However, because I am sure that you guys want the 'real deal' and not some cheap, horizontal stripe, knee sock wearing imitation, I will keep looking.

I am sure that you all are wringing your hands while waiting.....................

Oh my Lord......I love it! You look like a little firecracker I must say.

I am inserting a whole host of music and seeing you practice your spins, twists and of course......your parade wave.

Thanks so much.

My day....no, my week.... is now complete!

Michelle-glad I could help.

MG-I will have to go look for myself.

Ruth-I am kind of afraid to ask what you DID think I looked like?
