Mystery photo

JB, a dear old friend from Michigan, sent me a link to this photo the other day. She offered no annotations or comments, only the photo.

Well, there are things I know and things I don’t know about it. For starters, I have no recollection of where or when this might have been taken. However, I can safely infer from what I’m wearing that it dates from about 1986, and well, y’see… there’s a lot of stuff I don’t remember from the mid-80s, OK? I look as if I was pretty happy at the moment this shot was snapped, which is no mystery at all IMHO.

It does look as if this was snapped at a Ren Fest or feast, but the puzzling part to me is that this was a time in my life when I invariably attended such events in costume, though it does appear as if I might be holding a program in my hand. If anyone has any brilliant insights/guesses, please pass them along. In any case, I thought folks might get a kick out of seeing this. Hmmm… maybe I should have a Photo Captioning Contest…

Anyone for jousting ?

Re: Caption

If I'd have been a jouster on that day, I would certainly have been using my Lancelot.

I find the woman on the left's gaze to be sizing things up, so to speak.

Well, I was probably glancing down in her direction as well, so I guess that makes us even!

Yes, you were at the Michigan Renn Festival. It is I believe 1987. We ran into you and snapped a couple photo's of you since you seemed very popular that year! I just had to share.

Re: photo

OK, that jogged my memory of a few things -- 1987 was the year after I'd been the Assistant Entertainment Director at the MI RenFest. When I went there that year, I didn't want to be too prominent so I decided to forego a costume, though a lot of folks did recognize me and greeted me warmly. While I don't remember this specific photo, I do remember that I was on very friendly terms with one of the women pictured. Thank you!

Bead on the fly!

Hey! What is that cleavaged chick looking at?

Friendly terms?

1986? Very friendly terms? Ahem! CC

Re: Friendly terms?

Yes, I can see where you might wonder about that! All right, to be more specific, she would have been quite happy to have received more attention from me and was always extremely happy to see me. For my part, I made it clear that there were clear limits to those possibilities, though I maintained a cordial relationship w/her, particularly as I was technically one of her supervisors. OK?
