February 5 - Banjo Babe

Here's one just for fun. This is me in 1968 or 69. I was working at the University of Alberta and did some moonlighting typing PhD theses for some students. I took the pay for one of these theses and bought myself a banjo, took two lessons, and then sold it. Too bad - I would have liked to be able to play it but just didn't have the discipline to practice and learn. It was good for a photo op though.

Look at that blouse - long sleeves and buttoned high on the neck. Oh to be that slim again. Sigh.

I've seen this photo a million times, but you've never told me the story.
