me and my FRO



(Gary Rith in 1986 and 1987)
My pal's Ben and Cheri were joking about my big hair in the 80s. Not sure what they find so funny...... ;^) Cheri, that darling, says I have a rather hawt Isaac Mizrahi thing going, SO THERE! And NO Ben, it wasn't aquanet, it was benign neglect--no comb, let it GO.
(AND YES, I had bunnies when I was in college, I love pets!)


(me in 1987)

And I was trying to remember that SONG from the 70s when I was chatting with Lynda, a scmaltzy mess that catches you 'lalala we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun lalala...'
Terry Jacks, Seasons in the sun 1974.

Your hair was cool, Gary. Bunny is cute too!

Put a pair of blue jean bell bottoms and buffalo sandals on that guy leaning on the shelves and you look like the type of guys I used to date back in the late 60's, early 70's. ha!

MusicMan's hair grows like that and so does his uncle's. We were just teasing him (MM, not my brother) at supper tonight because he's starting to channel Napoleon Dynamite. But hey, it's HIS hair, so he can grow it if he wants to...

No bunny's here, cute though they are!

Even *I* had big hair in the '80s. See what mousse and a ton of hairspray do?

Ah we had joy, we had fun.... So sweet and innocent. And I still have big, curly hair, all natural..., but unlike Gary I'm a woman so that's my excuse.... :-)

I was BORN with this hair and if I let it grow, this is what it does.
And this song by Terry Jacks is horrible, but it keeps rolling through my head...

Speak to me of elliphants and afros. ;)

That Terry Jacks song always makes me think of another terrible song... Billy Don't Be a Hero!
