Me on the football field Homecoming game October 1969. I wish I knew then what I know now. Famous words. Forest Park Senior Highschool in Forest Park, Georgia. The ROTC did the escorting. My Mom made the dress. Red velveteen with a sliver and bead trim at the empire waist. I think she still has the dress hanging in a closet. I still have the gloves. I am sure the shoes were dyed to match probably from Baker's shoes. Remember the cloth shoes we all had dyed to match and sometimes even a clutch purse. I remember smoothing out that hair and then going out in the humidity and it would start poofing out. We did not have much to tame the hair with back then. A little dippity doo, hot rollers, hairspray, and that was just about it. I also had this lanolin by Breck that came in a spray can. It worked pretty good on my coarse hair. Thanks Sally for letting me remember.
