Actually, that is quite possible. My Maternal Grandmother worked at Sears. She may have used her employee discount to buy me a Christmas gift of GOOD pants......to wear trapping rats!


I have nothing clever to put here.

Early 70's. I had a pair of pants like that for game days. We were required to wear our good clothes with a tie on days we had games(football or basketball). Mine were also bell bottoms.

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?

My mom bought our pants like that at a store called Twin Fair

I would guess that was 1975 or 1976 but that is just a guess. I believe it was taken on the "Little Field on the Creek" behind my Grandparents place but I am not sure.

Looking good Rob. Nice to see a kid with a muskrat in his hand rather than a computer toy.

That is probably a very recent picture of you. Nice muskrat.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!
