Throwback Thursday: Scary Witch Tongue

Jeannie M. Bushnell at five years old with Halloween witch mask.

Miley Cyrus has nothing on the five year old version of Jeannie. I dropped the scary witch mask and decided to stick out my tongue. Apparently, this was a more terrifying image to me than the mask. I find that mask disturbing today, and I cannot imagine what would make me choose it as a child. I do have an affection for a bushy eyebrow; perhaps this was the inception.

I love that my hair blends in with the field behind me.

Throwback Thursday: Halloween as Dolly Parton

JMBushnell as Dolly Parton

I was raised in a house of country music. I can sing along to all the “vintage” tunes of the likes of Dolly, Conway Twitty, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Jeannie C. Riley, and the rest of the musical brat pack of their day.

For my first ever “Throwback Thursday,” I give you me, age 9, as Dolly Parton, complete with wig and false eyelashes. This is one of the few times I’ve ever been photographed with dangling earrings. I have always preferred studs–stud earrings.

This was taken at my elementary school, Toler Elementary in Garland, Texas. I believe the school held a Halloween party for the students.
