Kalyn, you haven't changed a bit!

Besides being Kalyn's blog design consultant, confidant, listening ear, tech support, occasional substitute blogger, and wonderful friend, one of my other jobs as her little brother is to embarrass her on her birthday. This is a picture of Kalyn probably about the time she was named Betty Crocker Homemaker of the Year. If there had been blogs back then she certainly would have had one. (I was probably somewhere in that same room wearing one of Kalyn's bikinis and her gigantic sunglasses. She and my sisters had a thing for dressing me up.) Have a wonderful birthday Kalyn. I love you. Rand.

  2. Very funny Rand. I don't even remember this photo, but notice the blue eyeshadow.

    Thanks Elise! In spite of this trick I'd have to say he's a very great brother.

  6. The tilt of the head, a slice of copper highlights, and light-blue eyeshadow - there's nothing not to love. Who knew this young hipster would become such a blogebrity?

    Happy Birthday Kalyn.

  8. Oh I am soooo totally on the floor laughing. You DO look just the same, Kalyn! And Rand's timing is entirely perfect. (And I'm immediately removing my sister's access to my blog RIGHT NOW.)

  12. Just one of the many reasons I will never give anyone my Blogger password!

    Just kidding, Kalyn: the photo is adorable. What a fun brother you have. But perhaps you can find a photo of him dressed in one of your bikinis and exact some revenge. ;-)

    Happy Birthday!

  22. Hello Kalyn,

    happy birthday, but sorry to say, that you changed a bit. You are wearing ear rings now ;-)

  23. Wow, I am a bit awed by so many nice birthday wishes. For all those who are wondering, I do have that same family CD where Rand got this photo, and I'll be looking for that picture of Rand in the bikini. His birthday is December 28, so I think a little payback may be in order.

    Reading your comments about the photo, it's nice to realize that there are quite a few of you out there who are at least close to my age. "I'm Telling You Now", Leslie Gore, and people remembering when we set our hair. It's fun to know that I'm not the only one on the internet who screamed at the Beatles and wondered whether Paul was really dead.
