I Don't Know What Mary's Doing. . .

. . . and I don't want to know. Supposedly this took place at a slumber party in 1954 after the party animals were chased out of Groesbeck. Girls Gone Wild!

Whose Butts Are These?

I knew those slumber parties were wild. I just didn't know they were this wild.

Genie Schuh sent me this link to a site devoted to the '50s. Have a look.

Homecoming Float, 1958

If I'm remembering correctly (always doubtful), this float was a rocketship. We stuffed napkins for hour at McKenzie Motor Company. I believe it won a prize, however.

That's Homecoming Duchess Pat Smith Wood sitting atop the rocketship. Click the pic for a nice enlargement.

Three Amigos

This photo of Noan New, Joe Edd New, and Joe Owens is dated October 1958. I don't know where it was taken or who took it. Looks as if Joe Edd is holding a portable radio, though.
