I had one of those Fuzzy Wuzzy soaps that grew fur.  Still don't know exactly how that worked.

Also, I loved Crazy Foam soap that came in an aerosol can.  I had the one with a parrot head.

Now I would be asking alot from elastic lol!!  I graduated high school in 1972 it was a hot year with outfits called Sizzlers, it was a little dress with panties to match because it was so short!

David Cassidy, My bell bottoms were never wide enough so I sewed a triangle of material down the side below the knee. They were extra cool if you walked on them so they frayed on the bottom. Earth shoes, Farrah Fawcett hairstyle, silly string, a Mateus Bottle of wine and after we drank it we had to put a candle in it and let the wax run down the sides....it went well with our black-light velevt posters. Such lovely room decor!

Bras after surgery

I have been reading about you ladies having a hard time finding a bra after surger.

If you have ins., you hosp should have a womens gift shop that has those.

Or in my case, I went to the mall in Alpharetta, ga. to a store called"Wet Seal" and they have a little bra that just slips on , its cotten, it $6.50 and it has very small pads in it, but if you have

prothesis, they fit in it perfect, if you are like a 32 to 36 B or C cup

I found this to be really comfortable, and the other day I found one at Walmart for $1.00 clearance.  there are no snaps and really small straps.

Just wanted to let you ladies know.

How about the flavored lip gloss, I think it was called Lip Smackers.  Okay a little before Farrah, there was Dorothy Hammill haircuts.  I loved driving my 65 Mustang to school.  And how about the Pat Benitar look?

Pot O' Gloss lipstick.  All the Yardley and Mary Quandt make-up in the Mod 60's--the eye shadow that came twelve colors in a watercolor paint tray.  My friend's mom had that and we got into it, unauthorized, of course.  I loved Yardley Oh! de London cologne.  I saw a website that claimed to sell the original formulation of it, and when I bought some it was nothing like the original.  Bummer!
