found while packing


Some years ago, my Mormon cousins - the Worsleys - sent us a Christmas card featuring all the daughters in the family. It was 1991 on the East Coast, meaning it was still 1986 in Utah - so the sheer volume of hair care products was something to behold. The next Christmas, Sean, Michelle and I sent a card back to them.

I include both here because some things are too good not to share.


Merry Christmas, Everybody!

Interestingly enough, I just went to a shower for a now twenty-something and pregnant Melissa (Worsley girls, front row, left) who now has waist-length very dark brown hair. She was the only one of the Worsley girls at the baby shower, mostly because the rest were in Utah, but here's an update: Buffy (aka Elizabeth, front row R) long ago grew all her front teeth in, is twenty or so, longlegged, and gorgeous, still blond. (L-R top row) Jennifer has two adopted kids and lives (in her natural brunette hair) in (Lordy!) Lancaster, California, with her artist husband; Janna has four kids and is pregnant; Michelle has five kids and is blond again; Wendy, dark brunette, has a new baby (her first). All the girls presently have very straight Jennifer Garner (or Aniston) hair. Wait, I take that back. I think Janna still has Utah bangs to heaven, but then I haven't seen her for awhile. But (note your sister's hair in the bottom picture) that moment in time was ruled by long, wild, Renaissance Angel curls.
Even *I* had a waist length spiral perm that year, if you remember. Ah, the late 80s... All that synthesized curly hair and all that synthesized music. What were we THINKING?

Round One of the Battle of the Bangs goes to Utah!

I dunno, maybe if you got matching outfits... but the sheer power of all that *HAIR*.

I mean...

Wow. Comedy gold.

Something about both groups seems to say "we can sing in harmony together", be it the no-frizz sextuplets on an obviously not-too-humid day or the trainfully teased trio in photo-rebuttal. Look out all Osmonds far and wide. By the by, what year does that make it in Utah now?

It is 1987 in Utah now.

One other issue is when you are in a scenario where you will not have a cosigner then you may genuinely wish to try to wear out all of your money for college options. You could find many grants and other scholarships that will offer you finances to help with institution expenses. Thank you for the post.

Thanks for your article. It is quite unfortunate that over the last one decade, the travel industry has already been able to to handle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, influenza, swine flu, along with the first ever true global recession. Through all this the industry has really proven to be powerful, resilient plus dynamic, discovering new strategies to deal with misfortune. There are often fresh challenges and chance to which the field must again adapt and behave.
