Take Me Back Tuesday 1987

My friend Kari of A Giveaway Addicted Mommy
decided to start a meme that would focus on getting all those non-digital photos computerised while having a wee bit of fun on Tuesdays.

Welcome to Take Me Back Tuesday!

My future DH "jamming" at his High School Graduation, 1987.

You may want to double click to see his "styling" guitar.

I was asked if DH was wearing red leggings. Since I did not know him back then the following conversation occurred.

"Honey, Kari wants to know if you are wearing red leggings?"
"No, those are red socks!"
"Were your pants short?"
"no, I wore shorts."

Seriously, who wears long red socks with shorts?????

So, I must share that those are red socks that he is wearing and that he had shorts on underneath his gown.
I will give you a second to visualize this...
Yes, shorts and red socks with black shoes. If there really were fashion police, he would be serving some hard time!
I love you Jennifer's hubby!

This is so funny - sorry I didn't catch the words earlier - my hubby was distracting me LOL. Now I've had a chance to look it over...boy, he sounds just like a man. I think it is a red dress and red tights LOL. Great guitar steve-o!

That guitar is truly outrageous. Truly truly truly outrageous.


What color were the shorts btw?

Kristin said...

It was so cool for back then though! How cool to look back.

Angus would be quite proud of him, I love it!

Aren't you glad his style has changed a bit? What if the boys take note of Dad's freewheelin' ways?

Too funny, but the socks matched the gowns! My hubby used to do the long socks with shorts thing too, I have since fixed him.
This one takes me back too, I graduated from High School in 1987!

So you married a rocker? Nice! Long songs and shorts of any color never go together! ;-)

I'm thinking this picture has "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" written all over it. Party on, dude!

MommaYoung said...

LOL, he was styling....

Liz said...

OMg, how funny, and cute! I totally heart the 80's! Love it!

He probably needed the red socks to go with his red polo shirt with a contrasting color underneath to roll up the sleeves and show... shudder.

Pink Monkey said...

LOL! That's too funny! Kind of like wearing socks with sandals, I guess. I'm also class of '87.

great picture and throwback to yester year does he love picture as much as you?

Denise said...

LOL!! Very cute. I think that my Hubby was wearing shorts with his dress shirt & tie under his gown too.

AAGHH!! I was rolling at what he said about the red socks. I noticed those before I even read the rest of the post. Your kids must crack up at that.

Does hubby still play guitar?

Tim said...

I graduated in 86 so Im remember those days well. I actually sang the school song and senior class song at my graduation. There were 1218 people in my class.

I gotta know. What the heck is he wearing under his gown? Leggings, tights, really tight pants? I mean this has me totally confused. Diggin on the guitar. The flying V was so the times then.

Love and Prayers,
