In My Room

Posted on Monday, October 16th, 2017

Dave!The first bedroom I had of my own (meaning it wasn't shared with my brother) was when my family moved into a new house that my parents had built. Personal space was a luxury I hadn't known, which made it even more special to me than I suppose it would have normally have been.

I remember very little about what my room was like in my childhood home. I do know that in later years it was painted a bright blue. I also know that I picked that color to match my Star Wars bedsheets in 1977...

Star Wars Sheets 1977

The color looked better on the sheets than my walls, but... Star Wars.

My carpet was a pukey green that could only have come from the 1960's. Other than that? Memories lost in time. Like tears in rain.

Until I found a photo in my latest batch of scans...

Young Dave's Bedroom

Hot Wheels! And the walls are white, which means that this pre-dates 1977 and my Star Wars obsession.

The only thing that looks familiar is the scary clown light on my nightstand. I remember it well. It had a happy-faced clown on one side and a sad-faced clown on the other. My aunt had made it, or else there's no way I would have had a murderous clown in my bedroom. There looks to be some other kind of ceramic creation next to it, but I can't recall what it was. If I had to guess, I'm thinking piggy bank.

So... unless other photos show up in future scans, I'm guessing this is it.

I'm not overly-sentimental when it comes to things like this, but I do regret that I didn't document my first bedroom better than this.

I would have liked to have seen those bright blue walls one more time.
