Flying high....

This picture with my sis and her baby (who will be 19 this month) gives new meaning to " We love to fly and it shows"! It took me nothing short of 1.5 hours of assiduous love to nail this beauteous coiffed bouffant. That and a can of aqua net! I would slither out of my coma induced state each and every morning at the beastly hour of *gasp* 3:45 a.m. to pull this look off for my devoted passengers. Some morning difficult as just crawled in hours before. Those were the days.

Note: haven't worn stockings since then!

That is too funny! I don't have many pictures of myself between high school and babies. I am sad that I don't. Love to see "the good old days" through yours. I am sure your passengers appreciated every minute it took you to get that hair just perfect. lol!

That's great. And, it's good to know that in the event of a water landing, your shoulder pads would single-handedly keep the plane afloat. I'm sure the designers had that in mind while creating such a comfortable, and sexy uniform! Just wondering, did you ever tell a passenger to get their own damn coffee?

Love the big hair, you're a doll! Now & then.
How do you find time to do this each week? What great memories.

What would you have done with the no aerosol rules on the plane? Somehow I think you would have convinced them to allow you to bring it on.

The skirt is much longer than I expected. With legs like yours, why would they cover them up?

Your waist was the size of my my... um... leg?

I'm going to get my scanner hooked up soon and I'll join you on this wonderful adventure you call 'retro Friday'!

Holy Shite! You are one gorgeous babe! Those stockings are dead sexy! I need to find some good retro to post. These are great memories and to think we thought we were the cat's ass in those shoulder pads.
