Kathy's Family Memories

prom2.jpg

The story about my prom picture:  As you can see, my prom photo is pretty hilarious.  Boyfriend with the amazing name of Fred Fricker with his arm in a "formal sling" and my hair teased up about as tall as Marge Simpson's.
 
About 3 years ago, an author named Elissa Stein, found this photo on my site and asked for permission to use it in her upcoming book called Prom Night.  I gave her permission and the photo eventually appeared in the book.
 
Once the book came out, The Cincinnati Enquirer called and they ran an article about prom experiences and they featured my prom photo and the whole story of me and Fred at the Milford 1970 prom.
 
I had insisted that my hair be up on top of my head because that was what "everyone" was doing that year.  It took about a gallon of hairspray and a gross of bobby pins to achieve this and when the hairdresser got done, it was so damp from the spray, she put me under the drier and then after it dried, had to cut me loose -- the hair was like cotton candy.  It was a full 3 weeks before my hair even resembled normal afterward.
 
The prom was not the great event that I would've wished for.  Fred's arm was in a cast, he smuggled a bottle of screwdriver into the prom in this sling and spent the better part of the evening in the men's room consuming same.  The one dance we danced was less than satisfactory because his cast caught on the lace of my dress and we had to get someone else to remove it.
 
There were some fun times -- the theme song was "Raindrops keep falling on my  head" and I sang it backwards for all my friends... call me anytime and I'll sing it for you.
 
Fred took me to Frisch's in Milford for supper before the prom and I tried to put a good face on it.  During the evening it came out that he and the girl he'd taken to his own Indian Hill prom the week before had dined at the Madeira Manor and then I was less pleased but too big a wimp to say anything.

Here we'll show you some views of Kathy's family snapshots from the past... (remember, I was the first child, so everyone took LOTS of pictures!)

Me, Uncle B. Langford, Grandma Langford, Julie Wilson and Grandpa Langford. This was the last picture ever taken of Grandma, about a week before she died in July, 1966 of cancer. I adored my grandma and it took me YEARS to get over losing her.

Me and Grandpa Allen A. Fry (believe it or not, I remember this dress, it had roses on it!)

Me with Ikey and Penny... my first pets, believe it or not, they were dogs and the only ones I've ever owned. I didn't know at first that Ikey was a dog, I thought he was a kitty and his name came from me calling him "Hi Kitty" and it sounded like "Ikey". Everyone thought we named him after Eisenhower, but we didn't!

Reading with Janice

Reading with Aunt Janice, my youngest aunt, 13 years older than me. Later, I nicknamed her "Ecinaj" (Janice backwards) and I still call her that.
