Sassmaster and Bros., Inc.

My dear aunt stuck this picture in with her Christmas letter:



It is Sassmaster and her siblings on an Easter morning in Grandma's backyard. I do remember that coat, with its candy-like buttons. Please also note the gloves, hat, and purse, which were modeled at Easter. Those two faux-prep-school red jackets made the rounds among all the boys. My youngest brother was not in the picture, literally or figuratively, so this must be what? 1969? 1970? Also, Sassmaster must have flinched when her bangs were being cut. Either that, or Mom was going for near baldness for the whole lot.

Little Sass is so cute! This picture does help to answer some questions I've had about your formative years.

Sassmaster! You look so funny and old-fashioned. Why don't you have an outfit like that now?

Because I have no taste. If my mom were still dressing me, it'd be another story.
