Girls Write Out
Friday, February 03, 2006

Have you seen that Ameritech commercial where they're showing old clips from the sixties and playing "our" music? I LOVE that commercial! They say something about "a generation as unique as yours" and when that music starts playing, I slip back a few years. Okay, more than a few. I slip so far back it's like falling down a mountain. I was in my twenties 30 years ago. How scary is that?

Anyway, here's a picture of me when I was about 21. See the long hair clear to my waist? My husband went into mourning when I cut it off. What IS it about men and long hair. Even now with me in my fifties, Dave would like me to wear long, stringy stuff like that. I'd look like that blonde woman on the religious channel. LOL I tell him, "the older I get, the shorter it goes." The hair, NOT the skirt length. LOL

Oh my goodness, I can so relate! I can't believe how much you and your daughter look alike! WOW!

As Bob Hope would say, thanks for the memories.

Oh man, that makes me feel old . . .

You look darling, Colleen!

Oh, wow, the memories.
"Little surfer, little one
Make my heart come all undone
Do you love me, do you,
Surfer Girl? My Little Surfer Girl!"

That was my favorite song, back when I had the long hair and the bellbottoms--my whole novel takes place in the '60s and do I love it when editors said "We don't want an historical." I beg your pardon! LOL I also loved "Sukiyaki," and "Hey, Girl," and "Just One Look." *sigh*

Didn't you love the Beach Boys?

How precious you look! Um, is that Dave or Kara?

The little guy I'm holding is my son Dave. Look at those curls! He's still got 'em.
