Excerpts from a Life

I have been posting entries from my journal on Saturdays. In 1975, Mango and I were best of friends, teenagers and just a bit boy-crazy. I still had that crush on Chevy. Mango, my sister Rlynne and I formed a band called Trilogy. We were the singers. Unfortunately, there were no musicians. Mango and I did have a creative imagination however and created a magazine called Outrageous that chronicled Trilogy's success story.


For $5.00 CND, come on...




I trust that you know how to enlarge these pics! Notice the t-shirts that Mango and I are wearing.








Here is a poster of Chevy and I!!

sophie said...

What a hoot! Thanks for sharing your walk down memory lane.

utenzi said...

Michele sent me to see you, Carol.

My sympathy goes to you, Carol. Losing a grandmother can be very difficult. Both of mine are gone.

I'm still not used to the new look of your blog, Carol. The t-shirts are... interesting but a little short on detail. LOL Any chance the 3 of you are going to get the "band" back together? Perhaps one or more of you can play something now...

That was a real blast from the past!

Michele sent me here.

Danielle said...

Great drawings, and memories! Those are so fun! Here via Michele's.

colleen said...

Ah...the memories. This reminds me of signs and clubs my friends and I were always trying to start. The setting up was as far as most of it ever got. Hi from michele's.

Mango Lane said...

Sigh...what could have been...

kenju said...

Carol, these are great pictures! I have been posting a few of my drawings from way back when too.

As to Friday's - I just don't seem to have the time. I'm sorry.

Carol said...

Hi to all the friends of Michele's.

Utenzi,
The idea of being in a band never dies once it is planted!

Come on, Mango. We can really be serious about it, this time!

Kenju,
Sob! I will take your name off the band's rollcall.

I forgot to answer your question!--I played the trombone in the UofArkansas marching band 100 years ago - I played the baritone in the concert band -- I still play the piano, guitar and the bagpipes -- I once worked at a instrument repair shop, so I can fix anything and play a little on them, too

Hey Zeb!

J. Andrew,
I am very glad to get your reply and to have such a wide variety of choices :)

utenzi said...

Michele sent me to see you, Carol, but you're not answering your door. :-(

Since you've not discard the idea of creating a band, what have you done lately to make it a reality, Carol? Come on--I want details!

Carol said...

Utenzi
Details, huh?

Pearl said...

Never to late to do music. Even "non-professionally" touring seniors homes with a song is always appreciated by residents. My aunt does that.

Great that you kept all those papers. I kept a bunch but my handwriting is pretty illegible.

You drew the faces really well.

Patry Francis said...

Loved this! I was never in a band, but it has always been my ultimate fantasy. So glad that you visited my blog and led me to yours.

Carol said...

Pearl,
Yeah, but seniors probably wouldn't care for Kiki Dee or at least not yet...

Paltry,
How about a marching band?
