Ruby Tuesday


Do I have something special for you guys today, Ruby Tuesday!

Take a look at the photo below. Who's the person in the RED sweater?


Yup, you guessed right! It's me at the World's Fair in N.Y. in 1964-65. I'm standing in front of the Winston Churchill pavillion. I wasn't married yet - I would be in 1966. Vinny always said it was that RED sweater that blew him away! Not too much of a beehive hairdo, right?

And here's another photo of me in 1963 when I pledged a sorority at Queens College. These were the costumes we wore for our pledge skit based on Oliver, the play. That's me on your left:

When I started looking through these pix I couldn't believe I had these two RED pix! Just to let you know Queens College doesn't have sororities or fraternities anymore...

I loved looking at these pix (which I edited a bit for color, brightness, and contrast) and I hope you do too!

Teach Mary,
You was and are swell.
Outstanding in a positive way.
No wonder your husband fell for you, beehive and that sweater.
Wouldn't it be nice to hear you singing once again.
Anything you can upload on You Tube?
A happy Ruby Tuesday to you and all your visitors.

Annie said...

omigosh. I had that haircut. It's hanging in my hallway right now next to my hubs when he had hair. Thanks for a humorous reminder of a time long past.

Hmmm, the verification word is Missing. I wonder if I'm being told something. LOL

The Cunning Runt said...

So, Vinny knew what was good when he saw it - lucky guy!

Great look back, Mary, thanks for sharing these. :)

Tink *~*~* said...

I remember lots of the World's Fair considering I was 4-5 years old at the time. We lived very close by in Queens Village, and visited often. Of course, I remember the Disney stuff the best! Carousel of Progress, Small World and some version of Universe of Energy were all there. Ah, the memories!

Oh Mary, I totally love your photos. You look adorable in both. I went to that fair with my best friend and shot my VERY FIRST roll of film with my new brownie camera there. And you know, it had some pretty neat shots! Thanks for the stroll down memory lane.

@nemonen said...

You look gorgeous in red. That´s my favorite colour! I can understand that your husband fell for you. I rekognize the hair style. I had the same. I am an old hair dresser so I have done a lot of thoose hair styles in -65-66 and I think it´s still a nice style. Have a nice day.

Very cute red pics. Love the hats!

anne said...

you look stunning especially with the first picture

Rita said...

First chance I've had to check out Ruby Tuesday in quite a while. Picked a good one to come back to. I graduated high school in 1964 and my graduation gift from one of my Aunts was a trip to New York and the Worlds Fair. Only time I have been there.

I also noticed that we were married in the same year, 1966.

What a small world.

Ambika said...

Great pics! I've joined in too..
