I was flipping through a photo album on Facebook one night on a page full of awesome old Ashland photos when I bumped into this:
That's my brother Dewey in the Ernie costume. Small world! This was taken at Beaser School in May 1985 on the day of the spring music program...they're standing in the school library, and if you drive down Beaser Avenue today, you'll see the houses in the background are all still there.
Here's a few more from my mother's files...those Sesame Street costumes are pretty sweet, especially for homemade stuff.
