about things we ladies from the "groovy far-out"
Its been alot of fun looking back and reminiscing with all
the readers and remembering our old styles,
favorite perfumes and beauty products, and the like.
On late night tv the other night I happened upon this
"Time Life" commercial featuring alot of our music
from back in the day. It was the middle of the night,
I was wide awake and my trusty camera was right
near-by..........so I started photographing
I sure enjoyed seeing and hearing all these old groups!

Does anyone remember when Elton John looked like this?
Gosh I do! I still can sing all his songs by heart especially
Yellow Brick Road
. I remember when he would wear all these big
and flashy glasses at his concerts.
What is your favorite Elton
John song? I loved "Your Song" and
"goodby norma jean" even
before he turned it into
"English Rose" for Princess Diana's memory song.
Did y'all love Linda? I loved her pretty voice.
EVERYBODY can probably sing along with this song,
