As We Were January 2014


Fire Island, late 1990's, early 2000?

Tony and I.

Not much of a back story here, just another summer vacation with Larry.

Reading, grilling, laughing, the occasional acrimonious game of Scrabble.

There would have been raucous lunches on the deck, naps on the beach afterwards.

 I would have been the first one up in the morning and armed with an iced coffee I'd patrol the beach, eyes downcast looking for beach glass.

Larry and Tony would go for a run and I'd do Yoga by waters edge.

Dinner was always eaten by candlelight.

Sleep came early.

All this loveliness aside, the reason I selected this picture?

It's the only time in my life, on film or in person where I appear to have breasts.


No wonder I'm smirking. Document that!

    1. You can come back whenever you find the time....there is no end to Mr. Linky.

  2. Wait till you reach middle age - bosoms you never knew you were capable of just appear! (and aren't always welcome either......)

    Interesting post; what a colourful life you've led, Jane. Great idea, this new game! Off to do my own post now, and so are the cats....

    1. Um pretty sure I hit that age with a bang. Didn't you hear it?

      Love your post. I think you led the interesting life.

      I just went to the beach a lot.

  4. I do believe you invented iced coffee. Great picture busty lady. Sounds like an idyllic time but Fire Island will do that.

    1. I remember my first one, in Montclair, at an old lunchroom. As I watched the milk flow prettily over the ice into the coffee I was enchanted. And quickly addicted.

      my longest relationship me thinks...

  5. Love your mischievous pretty smile!
    You're killing me with the Fire Island memories! An easy walk from bay to ocean, no cars, red wagons...(obviously I've forgotten the mosquitoes and deer ticks).

    1. It seems like I'll never have Paris, but yes, cheelbones :-)

    2. Or maybe the correct word is cheekbones. Pays to wear your glasses...

  7. Looking good, Girl, but Rachel is correct ... be careful what you wish for! Sorry, I'm so late to the party.

  11. What a wonderful idea this was, Jane. Husband smiled at the photo and said the mowing is all mine now. Since I was very experienced.

  12. This was so fun. Had a tough time choosing only one photo so I may keep it up on my blog once a week or something.
    You look lovely in your red bikini. Your comment reminded me that our Thanksgiving dinner conversation somehow always gets around to my cousin's lack of boobage.

  15. I am visiting via Southern Fascinations.

    Love the concept of your link party and love your story. Having breasts is never an issue with me. My daughter frequently comments that she is so glad she did not inherit my breasts.

  17. It is so funny, how the late 90's look so late 80's. Also in the movies!

    My link is a photo that dates back to 1975. I am sitting on the sofa, fidlding with mummy's autoharp. We still own the sofa. Now my feet reach the ground :-)
