Sadly it did not arrive in time, so I couldn't celebrate the fifties in the Chase pool, by doing some fine strokes in my pink cap. After all, the Chase swimming pool was where they did the live broadcast of the 1956 Miss America Pageant!
What a hoot it would have been to swim in my cap, where those lovely babes strutted years ago. This photo was taken at home (freezing) in my cap. In truth, I hate swim caps, after years of mandatory ones in the 1960's. This will be my last pose in a swim cap... or probably bathing suit...ever!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
