My Mother found this while cleaning out some junk at my Grandparents place. I am guessing i was around 4-5 or so at the time of the picture. I can't say I am overly impressed with the pants though. My Mother made them more than likely. "Store bought" clothes weren't really a thing for us back then. They were all Hand me Downs or made from scratch.

I think you should try to find some pants like that and wear them to the next convention. I didn't know they had muskrats that big in Minnesota.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

I don't know, man...I had an eerily similar pair of pants from about that same era. and strangely enough, I was about the same age as you in the pic. (I was maybe a couple years older.)

your Mom shop at K-Mart back in the day?

Nope I don't think we got a K Mart here until probably 1980 or so but they could have been a hand me down from some rich kid who's Mom shopped at the K Mart. smile
