Fashion Triumphs and Tragedies Survey

Extras from the Spring 2013 issue of Franciscan Way Magazine

When I arrived in January 1987 as a 40-year-old grad student, I bought a pair of earmuffs to combat the cold winds swirling around the top of the hill. I remember being laughed at; I’m sure the younger students thought I was an old fuddy-duddy. However, within a year, there were numerous pairs of muffs being worn on campus, so I like to think I started the trend. I’m not sure how long it lasted, but I’m still an earmuff wearer.

The main trend I saw at Franciscan was off-brand Birkenstocks from Austria, with jeans and a T-shirt.

There was, however, one girl named Claire, who always “wowed” me when I saw her. She made any combination work really well, even her blue bolt ear brings.

Mike-Smith-pictureIt wasn’t my scuffed construction boots, nor even the tar and grit under my nails from fixing roofs to support myself at Franciscan University. No, it was that I couldn’t do a thing with my hair!

But none of that stopped this wonderful lady, Linda, singer and former star of stage and screen, from marrying me some years later, July 21, 2007—to be exact.
