Day 163 — The hair, the hair
12-January-1972 (Mittwoch–Wed.)

John 1971 Student ID




1972. In Vienna, ditto. Normal school day.

2008. It’s Day 2 of my 2008 “catch-up” blogging. Recently, I have gone through even more old boxes and found additional interesting items from my year in Vienna. Here is one of them.

1971 Student ID. Holy cow! (I say that, a lot, when I’m surprised.) Look at my hair. Holy cow! It’s long. Almost hippie-like. Well, I don’t look too bad, I think.

It’s funny how I decided not to throw away these little items from that year. How many times have I gone through old boxes of stuff when going to school, or moving—and threw things away (like most of Anjali’s letters)? I’m glad I saved these mementoes.

My advice: if you’re going through interesting times in your life, save a couple of items of interest to remind you of your life at this time. When you look back, you will have a good laugh.
