None of us wore pants only to remove them. We did have to thaw out our red legs before homeroom. We wore knee socks or tall boots (which we removed for classes, and changed into flats). We looked pretty funny with a strip of chapped, red leg showing where the socks or boots ended, and our skirt hems started. One of my favorite Christmas gifts was a tapestry shoe bag with a strap to carry my shoes that matched my outfit of the day. I had to walk a mile from home to school from Kindergarten on up. Three different school buildings…K-6, JH, HS.
Dyed green hair (with or without green glitter in it) was the norm for St. Patrick’s day, and everyone looked forward to that. I think it was forbidden for us about the time I was a HS Junior. 1964.
Being a 60’s teen, I love telling the young crowd today what it was like way back then. We couldn’t wear pants, no one wore leggings (then it was considered “dance wear”), we froze walking to school in the winter.
Our rural school used to get the first day of licensed deer hunting season off. For everyone!
A type of binder (note book) that has locking metal rings, so you can remove your papers, and return them to the binder, with the push of a button to close the rings. The note paper had holes punched in it to fit the rings. The rings really snapped shut fast, so you learned to keep your hands free and clear.
She probably has, but Rerun is sworn to silence.
Only if you promise to never make him ride in the back seat of a bicycle!
I hope this doesn’t have anything to do with “memory” on Irving’s beloved devices.
A very SHORT mini skirt. I remember my DH’s niece complaining that her skirts had to be no shorter than to the tips of her fingers when her arms were held at her side. She had long arms!
