For Throwback Thursday: This is my first-grade picture taken in Sanderson, Texas, early fall of 1961, when I was six. We had been taken to the auditorium for photos, set up on the small stage. I was told sternly to not turn my head, but something interesting was going on in the wings so I was determined to get a look at whatever it was. And the shot was taken at that moment. My mother was furious with me at first. The dress was shades of brown and quite pretty with my coloring. Last black-and-white school photo I had.

Darling, that is adorable. I imagine Mama got over her fury.
