I had those exact same glasses frames. I think my optometrist at the time referred to them as "the cat's meow".

Mark - And now they fetch $4,000 in upscale eye glass shops.

hey I had glasses like that too circa 1965 - however, I was so embarrassed by them I only pulled them out for quick glances to the chalkboard....

I'm impressed you are still in touch with some of your buds from 1969!

Mouse - The one in the middle went on to become a leading set designer for operas in Germany. The one on the left quit his practice as a family law attorney to become an Episcopal priest. I lost track of the two in the back years ago.

Mouse - PS, I was soon embarrassed by these glasses and replaced them in the new year with John Lennon-style wire frames. We cheered in the year 1969 singing along to my 45 of "Hey Jude" on my parents Motorola French Provencial home entertainment center.

America was very Caucasian then.

WAT - I did become friends with the only African American kid in our school the following year. However, the excess of blond hair at that party is disturbing.

This is just precious. You ought to use it for your next party invitation!

Jill - Or for our reunion. At least one is a Facebook friend. They should all come to the next blogger meet up.
