Look what I found on Facebook!
That's my friend, Matt (known for ALWAYS having a guitar with him...see the strap?  My mom referred to him lovingly as "The Bard.")  But what is that in the background?  Oh yes, that would be 11th grade JoAnna knitting what I am pretty sure was a hideous striped scarf that Erin requested before realizing that I would make her a ridiculous monstrosity that she would be forced to wear all winter.
And here is a bonus pick just because it was taken at what I am pretty sure is either an IHOP or a classy local version of IHOP known as Nick's Patio (famously known for requiring you to buy at least $3 worth of food or be forced to leave).
 Ahhhh, high school.
