I spent the weekend at my Mothers house the week before last and was digging around looking for photographs of myself when I was the same age as my son. I found a few… a few I wouldn’t share with anyone else but my son! What was I thinking with the baggy trousers and platform shoes…!
I also found some old Army pictures including these two taken during my basic training, which did an excellent job of shaking me out of my baggy trousers and platform shoes! Also provided me with the most tenuous link yet into the translation environment because I wanted to write about clean and unclean files. I don’t know who came up with this terminology, but if I think about it, the description probably fits quite well. But the first time I heard it I’m sure something like these photos would have been closer to mind!
