So ... one summer during college I contracted the measles. Since I couldn't go to work, I decided to learn how to silk screen. As I read books from the local library on the subject, an idea came to me. My parents were to be out-of-town for a weekend, so what if
we have a party! I designed a logo, silk screened it on to tee shirts, and then sold them for five dollars each ... the shirt served as the "ticket."
It just so happens that I was reading "Lord Of The Rings" that summer for the first time. The theme of "A Mid-Summer's Eve" came from the birthday party held for Bilbo and Frodo. There you have it! Please forgive the quality of the photographs! After thirty years, I could not get them out of the photo album—hence the layer of plastic over the photograph!
