I don't believe my hair...ha..ha..ha

Glen & I '67'




Glen had asked me out
In the fall of '67'
We were in homeroom together
That is where we met

In October our school
Had its homecoming dance
He asked me to go
It would be my first time going

Got my shoes, my dress
Hair done, makeup
Ready to go-
He picked me up

On our way
To the dance
We get there
No dance...

Dear Glen-
Had a big mouth
Made a comment to one
Of the male teacher's... 

Who was chaperoning
Yes, we got turned away
However, we went to dinner
My last dance

Deb,
I love the dress, the hair, but the boy, he is hilarious..standing there all proud and manly..lol

At atny rate perhaps this was a wake up call for you...first and last dance, too bad though you missed your proms, those are too funny also...

I totally was brought right back to my first dance, (first date for me and my ex-husband). My cousin's band was playing and it was so exciting I had on new shoes and a brightly floral "tent" dress...funny stuff. It's amazing what we do remember and what we choose to forget...
Memorable poem, capturing a truly innnocent time in our lives.

Thank you so much for sharing this, I needed this boost this morning.

Much peace, love and light,
Amber

Dad gave me the car for junior prom. We got 8 inches of new snow that May 8. Can't remember my date or the dance, but I got a lot of girls angry at me when I refused to take them 15 miles out of town to the County Park at 3 AM in all that snow.

And then there was that senior prom where my date refused to leave town. I just happened to live 9 miles out of town at that time.

Nice hair!
