The Envelope Please

.

Or in our case the Rose. The 3 chosen by their peers. Yes, it made the paper. Again! This was big news in the day. Sadly (laughing now at what was so important--then-drama) I would not be the 1978/79 Ms. AmericaHomecoming Queen. But one of her two lowly loyal subjects who would serve the Queen in the event of her demise.(evil laugh) Good golly she could have fallen and broken a leg or worse a nail. We were there to eagerly step in. This was as you can imagine a coveted position. One held in the highest regard and sought after by even the toughest of girls. True. Did I have anyone fooled? I was flattered (especially being the new kid on the block) and it was a special time. Great memories, however but not something that I have ever included on my resume'! *snort*. I've got my eye on the big one now. "Blogger Queen"!

Song playing is Hot Stuff by Donna Summer a top 10 favorite in 1979.

I was my 9th grade homecoming princess and it still makes me feel good.... I hang on to it.... I could have been a contender... hehee
It should have been you baby! It should have been you.

nikki said...

Not too shabby for the new kid on the block...but as far as Blogger Queen goes -- you know you're gonna have to fight off Steffie for that coveted role!

Sophie's Mom said...

Wow, congrats! We knew... we all knew...

I never had a shot at it. 5'2" tall, with glasses. I was the quiet, smart kid. The boys never noticed. (sigh). Once I get my scanner hooked up (too many other projects I must finish first), I will show you all. LOL

I did get cute after high school...

How big a high school was this? There were 97 in my graduating class.

Diana said...

Blogger Queen wanna- be has to organize Blogger Bash in Vegas. Yes?

You did good, new kid.

Diana said...

Forgot to ask, which one won? My guess is the middle gal?

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

It was the middle gal and it was a small school. Only 197 in our graduating class. I moved here from a big city school which had a graduating class of 600!

I'm up for the campaign, are you Steffie b?! hee hee...

a&mg said...

You would've had my vote.

Julie said...

Love the feather wings! almost as good as some of your 80's dos!

also, congrats on the poop in the potty - that is an even BIGGER deal that Queen and her court!

A Special Family said...

I'm still laughing at how people thought this was important?! lol

Great pics!!!

Jeff and Valerie said...

Well heck it is about time you revealed who won. Congrats on the poop!

Salome's Mom said...

Definitely you should have won. I love this, seems so innocent.

jennifer said...

And blogger queen, you are!!

It is so funny to look back at those old pictures. I just found mine the other day. Boy does that seem like a lifetime ago!

kerri said...

I would have voted you the royal highness.
What, I thought you were the Blogging Queen?
I love you flashbacks, you are gorgeous, inside and out.
*wink* xo

secret agent said...

I have the exact same story... I moved to a new school middle of 11th grade and as the new kid... I too was nominated but was voted to be a subject rather than the queen.
Prom was a different story altogether.
I'll never forget my huge peach dress with beige lace, lace gloves, and a huge lace bow on the back of my head
ewwwwwww
must locate pics :)

Ms. Dragonfly said...

It is truly an honor to know you.

Lori said...

Oh yeah, but what is "Diane" doing today? Did SHE go on to become anyone?! I THINK NOT!


btw, Can I be one of your lowly loyal subjects when you're crowned Blogger Queen? I promise to serve you all the days....(evil laugh)

Beverly said...

People still think this is important at least in small town football schools. Just another generation. Love the fly back bangs.

Heather said...

You go girl!

redmaryjanes said...

It's an honor just to be in the paper!! Very fun. You guys look like Charlie's Angels.

averysmama said...

Thanks for visiting A's blog. Couple things:
1. Yes, she is very hard to say no to (but what kid isn't.. I may ask you the same question). You should hear what hubby and my therapist have to say about that. I'm not a push-over, but it's soooooooo hard to say NO at times.
2. Love your little ladies... they are way too adorable.
3. I've always visited your blog while at work (shhh!) and now I am at home visiting it and have volume on...HOT STUFF! LOL! Cracks me up! It'll be in my head all night, I think.

mommy24treasures said...

I think it was fixed ;) You are obviously homecoming queen material!

Julie said...

Okay - last night I did not have the sound on my computer or somehow I missed the song! It makes this post even better!

Dying to turn up the sound and dance but will not risk waking up princess #2!

Julie

LaLa said...

It is an honor to be nominated...ha ha... Come on you are still one hot mama!!!

Mr.Brian said...

Way to show em!!!!!You will always be a queen in my eyes.
The song says it all.....You ARE HOT STUFF!!!
I still think there should be a recount because I think you should have been queen.

Steffie B. said...

Hey my little sex kitten.....when is the par-tay in Vegas? Or maybe we need to go vist Sen? Love the new bloggy.....who did it?

shelley said...

Love the new look, please tell me you didn't do this a long time ago and I have been that unobservant??

MississippiZen said...

Gosh..... congrats ... 20 years late LOL! I am loving your flashbacks!

Steffie B. said...

Good morning...have a great weekend!

redmaryjanes said...

Are you UP?? We're having Saturday Morning Live Chats, so come on over HOT STUFF!

kris said...

You are such a trip!

Damn your site for making my computer go all whacka-doo. Must have a thing for you. Cuz you're, like, hot. (wink wink)

kris said...

And oh hell. The new look is awesome.

Two Kayaks said...

Love the new look! And by the way, you are a queen in my eyes. :)

redmaryjanes said...

Love the new look.

Mr.Brian said...

New hot look to go with the hot women.Brings back memories of years back.
Guess since it was top ten in my days I remember disco dancin to it thinking I was also hot stuff.
It is always fun looking back at the hair and clothes from high school days.OMG the leisure suit I wore for Sr. pictures. Not to mention my permed hair.
I may need to see if I can get them posted some day.

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

Did Mr. Brian say he had "permed" hair?! I'm snickering over here....

Thank you all for the kind words on my "new" look. I've had a bit of work done and as you can clearly see it was much, much (gasp) needed. A little nip here and a little tuck there. I do believe the good "Dr" did a fine job. So, who can tell me whose talent this is???

Nancy said...

Love the new layout.
The song goes perfect with this post.

Sophie's Mom said...

The new look is real purdy, Ayuh...

Will there be a prize for guessing right? I like prizes...

Ms. Dragonfly said...

What the hell?!?!
Did i make a wrong turn?
Snazzy digs you got...

barkfoot said...

You were robbed, my vote was for you!
What DID happen to Diane Buchanan? She just disappeared, but you were at home all evening...right?!

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

Barkfoot, I got out of that one horse town as fast as my then little butt would run.... I believe the person you speak of is still there and easy to find....... I move around... Always have.
