Old pictures.

Dan Hoffman uses a picture of me to illustrate a post about the relationship between lawprofs and law students. That's me, back in the days when I was a law student, when big magenta glasses were an "Annie Hall"-inspired craze, and when I thought I was pretty good at cutting my own hair. Now my student-lawprof relationships can be affected by seeing what a serious/deranged law student I was.

And as long as we're doing old pictures, here's one I like of me -- and my older sister -- from back in 1953, when professional photographers took crisp black and white shots and then painted them for permanent color:

1953

And, yes, of course, I would wear the larger-sized dress when I got older.

I think my great grandmother had that couch. Was it kind of fuzzy? Or felty, but not as soft? I used to like to run my fingertips along the 'grain'.

The little sister always wore the dress twice as long didn't she? My little sister always hated that. I did too, with my favorite dresses that I could no longer wear, but she could...
