Flashback Friday

On the way to school this morning, a local radio station was doing a "Flashback Friday" song. This got me thinking. How about a Flashback Friday post?

For my initial one, I'll keep it simple. It's just two words...

banana clip


Remember those? In the 80's when I had long blonde hair, I'd sweep it up in some cute, plastic, neon banana clip. Well, dare I say it? That trendy, girly, accessory store in the mall that we all love SELLS THEM NOW! My niece and I (she's just a few years younger than me) nearly DIED when we spotted them!!! Maybe they've been selling them for awhile. Who knows? I haven't been in the market for one since 1987!

How's THAT for a flashback?

Next Friday...Michael Jackson. YIKES!

***photos are from G*ogle Images...not from our family album!

HAAA!!! That's so funny...I love it. Yes, I remember banana clips well, though they never really worked that great in my hair. I was always envious of the girls who wore them so "beautifully."

Flash Back Friday...that's fun. I'll have to think on that...hmmmm. How about parachute pants?

I loved those days it was so easy to fix your hair.

I do remember them, when I had long hair I tried to use them but my hair was too thin so they would fall out. So I think they've been aroung longer then you think. Do ever remember seeing me in long hair?
