Cards At The Esquivel Home

1953 Comet

1953 Comet

I purchased a yearbook this weekend at an estate sale and discovered that the owner had written words all over the images.

For example, this junior student was not only ugly, but “Granny Ugly.” Several girls held that distinguished title.


This boy with glasses was labeled blind, as were about a half dozen other boys.


Blind to what, I wonder? Her charms?

It may not be an insult today, but this gal was “Skinny Bones.”


But lest you think she had no kind words to ink her page, she did find Judy the pretty one here.


Or maybe it was Judy’s yearbook?


Trust In Me

In keeping with yesterday’s eyeglasses post, we continue with the theme.

Is it me, or does Mr. Gibson have Jungle Book snake eyes?

He’s like one of those cats with two colors of eyes.


And check out Mr. Curry down below. While Richard’s pipe and Donald’s head of nails are interesting features, Paul has the intoxicating eyes. You can’t turn away.


Maybe it was something in the water. Even some of the professors at Western New Mexico University had crazy eyes.


Professor Morton looks like he just hid the body and is biting his tongue to keep quiet.

I almost cropped Professor Habeeb out of this image but I did not want to deny you his amazing salt ‘n’ pepper hair, valiantly defying gravity as it swirls about his skull like a kudzu vine.

Well, I Can’t Make That My Title

The Republican Party--Smith

The Republican Party–Smith

Dick Nixon did much of the 1956 campaigning for the Eisenhower-Nixon ticket. Here he and wife Pat ride through a snowy Evanston, Illinois.

Eisenhower defeated Democratic presidential nominee Adlai Stevenson II (there are actually four) in both the 1952 and 1956 elections, due to attitudes like this.


And snappy hats such as this.
