Old high-school girlfriend looms over New Girlfriend.
Friends and girlfriends, old and new
At the top of the picture are Ed Morgan and Jack Skammels, long-time cronies of Richard. It was at this swanky Westport, Mass party that Richard consummated his budding relationship with “C”, who is seen here at the far right seated on a fake Grecian style bench. She is wearing one of those cute little kerchiefs so popular in the ’70’s.
“C” was a former majorette, a special education teacher, and a modern dancer, all of which Richard found quite alluring. He may have also been attracted to “C” because her parents owned a fine burger and beer joint that overlooked the Atlantic ocean.
Standing over “C” is Richard‘s ex-girlfriend from high school, also “C”. Not very long ago, he and she got tangled up on the Internets. This happened right after Richard and she met up at Richard‘s father’s funeral.
Richard‘s fling with Miss “C” was short lived. Because Richard is used to be a hopeless romantic of the first order, he took being dumped hard. He thought he had a future with Miss “C” which is completely crazy. Richard‘s photo never appeared in his high-school yearbook and no baton twirling majorette would ever stand at the altar with a man like that.
There may or may not be pictures from this short stint back home in Massachusetts. At the moment, Richard cannot find any but he will keep looking.
