THROWBACK THURSDAY

From my high school yearbook, my 1958 Senior picture.


My 7-year-older brother had earned the nickname, Tiger, for his ferocious play in sports.

I used to tag after him as he went to practices. One of his coaches nicknamed me "Little Tiger", which became "Little Tige" and eventually morphed to "Cougar".

I was "Cougar" from then on and was startled at my 10th high school reunion by hearing someone call me by that forgotten name.

And I have no memory of being a Prom Waiter!

You look better now. More worldly.

Wow. Cougar the Prom Waiter is now etched in my mind.

Stephen Hayes said...

Cougar is a much better nickname than the one I was saddled with, which I'll keep to myself.

Tom Cochrun said...

You were a handsome lad. A Clark Kent type!

I agree with Mr. Cochrun, but I'd suggest a young Marlon Brando.

Cougar takes on a whole different meaning today. I'm seeing Clark.

Gawd! Doesn't anyone see Robert Redford?

Val said...

Heh, heh. First offender!

I'm guessing that Prom Waiter was an honor.
