    Ha Ha here is my lovely little family. Think I was about 24 or 25. Wow look how long my hubby's hair was! The little one my hubby is holding is our son and the one w/ me is our daughter. Man that was a long time ago.
    Threw in one (20yrs old)when at our after marriage party doing bad, bad things.........well it's legal here now so guess they can't come after me right?
    We listened to Dylan,The Doors, Cream, Iron Butterfly etc.

    Wow, you guys have been busy. JW - you don't look too happy in that picture - I think back to my 20's and I had the world by the a$$, just didn't know it at the time.

    Just saw KISS not that long ago. They put on a great show - the Pyrotechnics really got me. They were about 100 feet away from us and we could feel the heat from the flames. Can't imagine Gene Simmons and the rest on stage with the Flames.

    Don't think I can come up with a picture from my 20's, I can come up with 30's, 40's and 50's -

    Capewind - I like long hair. I will never cut my hair, so I am with you on that. Too much versatility....

    30s work:)

    Exactly, although I do need to trim the split ends .. no effort at all ... normal day ... echo safety glasses to hold it back ... simple to throw into a ponytail or twist into a bun (with a scrunchie or a PEN) ... after the curling iron stage, and the PERMS (ohhh remembering the smell) ... I like EASY:)

    Ok - I found one in an old collage my Mom made a long time ago. This is probably circa 1982ish - I did do the big hair thing, but not in this picture - I believe that was later in the 80's. I was 23, (I think).

    I am not sure what was with that beer, as it was not available in Canada... I must have brought some back from a trip across the border. Funny how the hair goes... you reach your teen years, smoking, drinking rock and roll, it grows long... then you grow up and cut it off, just for the rest of it too fall out.

    I'll look for a pic. Since we've gone digital, not even sure where my old pics are. If "30's" is OK, it may have to be a wedding pic -- at least I know where THAT album is :)

    It was the thing to do back then... I think it all came down to the price. It’s still that way, as a 24 of Molson Canadian is currently $40.95 !!!

    I'm not even sure I have any pictures of when I was 20, but I do happen to have some from when I was 18 already online, and only because they have some nostalgic significance to one of my favorite past times and I already posted them in another forum.
