Hippity Hoppity


This photo was taken of me and my bestest cousin Jubal around 1977-1978, maybe? I don't remember the event at all (Jubal...do you?), but I do know that we were at the Lloyd Center. Nowadays it's just a regular, encolsed, everyday mall, but back then it looked like this. Oh, if only they had embraced its open-air Mid Century coolness and left it alone, just think of the fun we'd have!

Anyway, Happy Easter and Happy Spring! Here's yet another photo of the mantle, now fancied up with tissue paper finery from this place, the most addictive store in town.



And I'll leave you with this little blast from the past, a commercial my brother and I absolutely loved. Thanks Easter Bunny, Bawk, Bawk!

Hi Meegan!

Thanks so much for the link to Malls of America in this post! I really appreciate it, and I also love this photo. :D

Hey, would you mind if I posted it on MOA--since it was taken inside a vintage Lloyd Center, it would be perfect there. I'll credit and link back to you here, of course. Please let me know, and thanks again.

Happy Easter!

hey,is your cousin Jubal a professional violinist, by chance? (I'm acquainted with just such a gentleman) The name is so distinctive - there cannot be all THAT many guys running around (about that age) named Jubal.
best,
