Rod, age 10
Great Bend, Kansas (1978)
I was a sensitive boy with a flair for fashion. In grade school, my friend Kelly told me I shouldn't be wearing my mother's jewelry to school. As a baby, I wanted a Raggedy Anne doll to play with in the pool, but had to settle for Mickey Mouse.
Looking at this pic, I have a few thoughts: God bless Jimmy Connors' tennis clothing. They made the cutest short-shorts and matching shirts - which made my thighs look so thin. And thank you Izod, for the beautifully matched socks.
As you can see, I loved being really matched up (note the socks in the sandals). And I loved that my shorts resembled a cheerleader skirt.

...um, what elementry school did you go to? I went to Eisenhower from 73-79.
I went to Jefferson 1980 - 1981 and then to Harrison and GBHS, class of 1987.
Do you remember or know any of these guys? I had such a crush on them in elementry school. They were all cute when we were 12!

and Rob Beutenbaugh (?) I think he was killed in a car wreck in 85. He was really cute at 12.
