Welcome to my Surprise 15th Birthday Party!
I have no idea what is going on in these photos, but yes, that’s me, in the Red shirt, being attacked on the couch, by no less than five people! Maybe they were trying to prevent me from leaving?!
Pictured here is Karin Gardner, Mark Merrill (I think), Chris Cullitan, Kevin Fritsche and Linda Steigerwaldt (my friend, who had the pool stick aimed at my jugular!)
My good friend and neighbor, Val White, threw this “Surprise” party for me, so I have her to thank for all that happened that night. (Wish I would have known about it so I didn’t dress like such a dork for it!)
These were all kids we’d been in school with, since the 7th Grade at least, and it made for one interesting get together (apparently!)
I also remember that my best friend Ann and I liked these two older guys and I have a vague memory of them showing up later that night, and it seemed so out of place, yet cool in a way. I also seem to remember some sort of make-out session, with that older boy, in a back store room, while the rest of the party carried on without me!
Enjoy the Photos!
