It’s almost costume time for those who partake in halloween and related autumn events. So I dug up this early 80’s glimpse into a night of alter-ego shenanigans for my cousin Tracy (Chapman) and her squeeze, making his official wisepics debut in fine form here, Neal Stoll. They are sitting atop that suitable-for-harvest-time brown-orange couch (oh how I miss that one) in the Evergreen living room.
I’m noticing the mismatched boots, the dirty cheeks, the Mark Twain-like pipe, the brown-bagged bottle of spirits, the suspenders, the Mary Poppins-esque hat.
I wonder if they would recall the party/event this was for?
As for dating, I’m estimating around 1981 — with Tracy 18yo and Neal 17yo.
- What was the occasion?
- What’s in the brown paper bag?
