    1. Mine are much bigger. They didn't stop until they reached 11. :) Nice to hear from you, Kittie.

    1. Not dresses usually, but I do wear skirts in the summer. I love the comfort of a long skirt

  6. Can so relate to the hair ... mine was Janice Joplin ... long wild frizzy and very very black ... would sleep on rollers the size of a coke can to make it straight ... walk outside and total frizz all over again when everyone else had long staight beautiful flowing hair ... how I hated them!

  7. So, that was a perm eh?
    I'd forgotten about how our mother used to give us those when we were little. Her little projects. Ha.

    1. I had an early "afro." Yet another perm that went horribly awry.

  8. And she loved cats, too. :)
    Sweet picture! I wondered if it was a perm, too. We all got them when I was a girl. Horrible smelly process and the entire house reeked! LOL!

    1. Oh, I certainly did. Adored them. Still do, but Buddy won the drawing and I'm not a bit sorry. Would love to have a cat again, though. Perhaps some day I'll give it a try.

      We actually went to a hairdresser, aka The Torturer. It's all there, in an early post: "Home Hair salons and the Geneva Conventions." really.
