Let Me Show You The Door

Cactus 1979

I found this little nugget in a new-to-me yearbook (that reeks of cigarette smoke and has little torn football ticket halves inside) this morning. Every bit of it makes me smile. The dark-bearded fellow in the floral shirt evokes the (not-then-yet released) movie Urban Cowboy. The fellow in crimson and cream is clearly the aggressor, perhaps Bud-induced, and his failure to don a belt makes me cringe. Beltless jeans make me crazy.

The towheaded guy in orange reminds me of a younger (perhaps more Appalachian) Terry Bradshaw.

Bradshaw Fun Fact: Dallas Cowboys’ linebacker “Hollywood Henderson” infamously said Bradshaw “couldn’t spell ‘cat’ if you spotted him the ‘c’ and the ‘t.'” OUCH.

    1. In Austin, there are many Half Price Books, which I’ve scoured since about 1983. They have Nostalgia/Americana/Texana and sometimes clearance sections with yearbooks. I also go to estate sales and antique stores to find them. In this economy, I’m only getting clearance ones (under $5). Many are $50+ but I can’t afford that. Feel free to convert to Canadian amounts… 🙂
