Alphabe-Thursday

For the letter Z, I chose zero, zilch skills because that's what I'd say my Mom and me had when it came to fixing my hair for school pictures.  

Exhibit A - Mom fixing my hair - Actually except for the bangs being rather short this isn't too bad.

Exhibit B - What was mom thinking?  Looks kind of zany to me.


Exhibit C -  Again Mom fixed my hair.  If this whole hairdo doesn't scream zigzag, I don't know what does.


Exhibit D - Unfortunately, this was probably all my doing, ha.  I look a little zozzled here but I'm not.




P.S.  I think there must have been something on my scanner that I have that big black mark on my face, trust me I wasn't trying to me an old time movie star, ha, ha, ha. 

Thank goodness Alphabe-Thursday is done for now, I think I've embarrassed myself quite enough.  Alphabe-Thursday seemed to just grow and grow which is a testament to the teacher's fun idea.

Now, go over to see what others came up with for the letter Z   http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/  
I'm posting this a little early so alphabe-thursday won't be up until around 9 p.m. or so

Viki,

What an endearing and amusing stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's Letter "Z".

I think your pictures are adorable. Perhaps it is the zany hair but they are so sweet.

And so are you to share yourself with us during this meme.

It has been wonderful getting to know you better each week!

Thank you for linking!

A+

WOw! You are so funny, it is not as bad as you you think! Remember when this was, nobody's hair looked good! I think you are darling. Thanks for all the wonderful posts during Alphabe, so glad to have "met" you.

lissa said...

you looked quite adorable in the first two shots -I don't quite know what to make of the third hairstyle - it does seem to be zigzaging to some degree. the last looked like a bob - sort of remind me of Shirley from Laverne and Shirley

and I had to smile when I see photos like those - they certainly makes me think of childhood so thanks for the smile

I have interesting hair in several of my early pictures from before my mom took us to a department store for haircuts.

Terra said...

This was really fun! I wonder if it was zero skills or over zealous hair?

Sarah said...

Darling school photos. I think all of mine show my hair in a pony tail. :-)

I have lots of zany school pics! I remember cutting my bangs in my kindergarten year. Oops.... This was great. Thanks for sharing with us today! Anne

What a fun post, I love old school pictures. I hope you plan on being in summer color school too! Kat

Gayle said...

This made me laugh. :-)

Christy said...

i don't think these are too bad at all...i think they are fetching hair styles...it is much better than having a mom who shows up to school on picture day with a can of hair spray, and an arsenal of beauty products (not mine, but my friend's mom)...now that is embarrassing!

Short and Sweet said...

Cute pictures and a wonderful post. We all have school pictures that make us smile a little.

Tina said...

Oooh! Love the new header! And I think you look adorable in each and every one of those pictures. Thanks for sharing them with us!

Tracy said...

Viki what fun reminders of how much your Mom loved you. she wanted the best reminder of her little girl.
Hope we stay in touch

Nora Johnson said...

Super ‘Z’ post – such cute pics!

Have a great weekend,

LOLA:)

PS Mine this time is HERE. Hope you can join me!

Mary said...

I think your pictures are adorable, zilch hair skills or not :-)

My name is PJ. said...

So many of us can identify with this!!

You sure were a cutie!!

Julie Schuler said...

Your poor hair! Lol. I have a few of those.

Mumsy said...

Those are cute pictures anyway, Viki..You should have seen mine back then..

Pondside said...

Those old school pictures......not much I can say as I have a collection too. My mum had some strange ideas about hair, and I (as firstborn) bore the brunt of her imagination when it came to coiffure.

LemonyRenee' said...

Cute and fun post. I just cringe when I look at some of mine --uuuck!

laterg8r said...

gotta love mom hairdo's LOL :D

Snappy Di said...

Hee hee... I think we all had zig zag looking hair back in the early 60's when it seems that ALL MOTHERS did our hair. Mine even used Butch Wax on my hair to make it behave.

Theresa said...

So fun seeing your pics! Happy Z day to you!

Laura Lofgreen said...

This is hilarious. I remember my mom doing my hair in a braid in the morning before school. By the time I got home from school the braid was no more. All that was left in my hair was a loose-hanging piece of elastic. Lots of laughs.

Sue said...

Love this post. Love the photos.

I even love the hair!

=)

easternsparkle said...

Thank you for being brave and sharing these photos with us!! I'm sure most of us have soemthing very similar hidden away!!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

LOL - I have school pics just like that! My Mom was also hair dressing impaired.

Sweetums5 said...

Actually, I think your pictures (and hairstyles) of Exhibits B & D are very nice. And exhibits A & C aren't bad -- it's your smile that makes the pics. Thanks for sharing.

A 2 Z said...

Hi Viki,

You are a very courageous lady. My mom really did not have the time to curl my hair. I was always in a pony tail with no bangs either. Now that my kids are older I'm being criticized for the way their hair looked. You just cant win LOL. Thanks for sharing.

Lourie said...

I love the first picture. Mine was a similar style and my bang were even shorter. I tried to play beauty salon!

Jo said...

Exhibit C .... ummm i think i had one just like that ... but all through these pictures your little face is just adorable!!! like pinch your cheeks cute!

Cheryl said...

You're far braver than I! My school pictures are um, erm, ew, ah, jeez, so much more embarrassing than these. Still giggling!

The Muse said...

Adore, yes adore this post for Z day!
So cute, just so cute :)
I am sure we would have been recess buddies! :)

LOL (poor mom)

Becca said...

OMG I have some amazingly bad school photos...

H said...

I have some equally embarrassing photos of myself in school days! Sorry - I like taking photos, but I hate being in them, so I'm not going to share :)

Melinda Cornish said...

I gotta tell you, I think they all are just adorable.......

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Love the school photos! I recently put up one of mine on my blog. (I don't know how my mom could have let me leave the house looking that way.) I sent it to Ellen for consideration. She's looking for old school photos. You might want to send one of your pictures too. :)

Life@Cee said...

Thanks for sharing your school pictures. My grandmother used to display all of her grandkids' school pictures on a big peg board. I think I had one picture up there (out of 17!) that didn't make me want to hide from embarassment.

Natasha said...

That last hairstyle is my favourite! You have a very sweet smile.

Best wishes for a wonderful week,
Natasha.
