The Higher The Hair, The Closer To Jesus, Part I

However, Blinda’s Leaning Tower of Pisa is probably closer in proximity to The Pope. She’s certainly giving Deb a run for her money.

Teasing was involved on both of these Mary(s), and it appears as though a hairpiece or extension was haphazardly lobbed at their heads, with no regard for rhyme nor reason.

Donnita’s lithe neck can barely support the combined weight of coif and hardened Aqua Net.  Any minute now, it could snap like a twig.

I don’t know what to say about Kathy.  All I know is she’s in this yearbook twice.  Same name, same pic, so it’s no misprint, people.  Kathy with a K.  Moving on…

From the saucy smirks of the Nix Twins to Dennis’s kind eyes (which seem more 48 than 18 years old), to the barrel of whiskey hidden beneath the teased bleached locks of Regina, this pic does not disappoint.

I hate it when people say they gave 110% effort, because there is no such thing as more than the absolute total that exists.  Having said that, Linda gave 110%.  Have you ever seen a waterfall after a hard freeze?

Clearly they try harder.

But Travis.  Sigh.  Travis Isom, Travis Eyesore, old boy–what were you thinking with that unibrow? Read the page; Seniors Try Harder!  You should try harder with some tweezers.  Or a razor.  This is unacceptable, Travis.  Shame on you.  Why couldn’t you have copied the simple brows of J.C. and Mike (who BTW, look pretty retro 50s greaser for a 1967 yearbook, if you ask me)?

And the winner of the most interesting hairdo is…Beverly’s ratty flattened mess, complimented by insanely dark arched caterpillar brows!  You can bet David wouldn’t touch her with a ten foot pole!  She smells like cigarettes and Binaca breath spray, and that scares the pee out of him.  Does someone have a ladder so we can climb up there and crown her?

  1. Damn girl…Where did you find my year book? Oh..FYI Bev and Dave got married right after High School and had a right nice family “chemical business” in Texarkana; until they retired in 2006. “Go Panthers” !

    • I thought of you when I saw this yearbook; you would have been a senior. You should totally relate. I didn’t think Dave could handle Bev, but you know better than I do, so go Panthers!

  2. Beverly Franks kind of reminds me of the “Leave It to Beaver” episode featuring Wally Cleaver and his “bad date,” a slutty, cigarette-smoking blonde played by Diane Sayer. Fortunately, Wally caught on pretty fast, and went home a little wiser.

    • That’s nice to hear a man’s perspective, the way you worded that. I think we called it crunchy mall hair in the 80s, but I can’t IMAGINE how crazy it would have been with all that 60s hairspray. I can see how you wouldn’t like the feel of that. How did they even WASH that? Flowy 70s hair would have been a revelation.
