ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

"But they're cousins, identical cousins. . ."

Cousins Lynn Shaddock, me, David Shaddock and Laurie Shaddock in front of Magy and Grandad's house on Iroquois Street in Freeport, Illinois. This snapshot was taken in 1958.
See? Even then I dressed with little thought as to the prevailing fashion. Blue was obviously the color of choice, but don't I look pretty in pink?
And David's Keds are swell.
