You've come a long way baby

I had an absolutely awesome night last night, catching up with the two schoolfriends mentioned here. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. And then finding we had friends in common just blew me away. The one who lives out of town spent the night at my place - we sat up until 2.30am talking. I can't remember when I last did that! Then this morning we picked up right where we'd left off, and talked ourselves dry.
It was after 2pm by the time she left.
While at the pub last night we managed to talk an obliging young man into taking some photos. I've added a couple of photos from 1973 for comparison.

Third - me. I don't recall when this one was taken (but I remember the two-tone cords!)

Even after all these years I still felt as comfortable with these two as I used to, as if the intervening years never happened.
PS I can't wait to play blind cricket....
