Navy size

I have been going through my "stuff" getting ready for a yard sale, hopefully next week-end if the weather holds out. I found my old Navy uniform, and gosh did it look small! The pants have a 24 inch waist, which means I was actually no larger than 23. I find that hard to believe!~ I think I was wearing a size 8 or 10, but they are smaller than today's 8 or 10. I weighed 117 at 5' 7" so I was thinner than I should have been. I need to dig out some pictures and scan them. I am finding all kinds of stuff I hadn't seen in years. My homecoming dress from senior year, homemade by Mom. Satin Japanese box with pajamas and slippers that Dad sent from Okinawa in 1962. Somewhere there is a picture of Denise and I in our Pajamas. I need to dig that out too.

When I find the pictures I will add them to this post.

Who needed to be reminded to eat her protein & enough calories back then, eh? Wish I could be there to help with your yard sale.......if you wait a week, then you'd have me, but also 90 degrees.
