Joy is the one in the middle in dark glasses. You almost have to have lived with her - as I did for two years - to understand how ubiquitous those glasses are. Joy wore contact lenses but was always too tired to keep them in long. And she didn't have regular glasses - so she was always wearing her prescription sunglasses!!
(During high school, she was forever losing a contact - once in a swimming pool - and we actually found it!!)
Maybe you have to take my word for it, but this photo just captures a moment in time that was a great, happy time - one I treasure.
And I treasure the friendship we share - and want to wish her a very happy day!!
Here's to birthdays, and friendship, and late-night clowning in the dorms!!
