Whadya Think This Is, The Waldorf??

Actually, yes. From left to right; my Uncle Roger, Aunt Vera, my mother and my father.

This was November 13, 1970 and they were in the Empire Room at The Waldorf Astoria to see Johnny Mathis.

I can see my father's "thick and thins", that's what they used to call the socks he is wearing, the ones that are sheer, with solid striped throughout. They were all the rage at the time and all the best dressed guys owned a pair; I think it was a New York thing.

My mother is wearing a chocolate satin hot pants outfit that she made, with a sequined scarf that hung to her waist.

I think my mother just inspired my next hairdo. I'm going to grow it all out and go retro; back to the seventies - white eyeshadow included!

We even got dressed up to go to concerts up here in the woods back in the day! No jeans and tees! Couldn't tell you if it was the Waldorf as I never got past the lobby. Another great picture of your beautiful mother...

GIL: I know - everyone "dressed" back in the day. Everyone's gotten so lazy and so casual. I remember when I first moved to AZ, I was COMPLETELY overdressed everywhere I went. And the first time I went to Vegas (I was 16), people dressed up for everything, even just going to dinner. Now, everyone is in shorts and t-shirts and casual and sloppy. I hate it. Mommy was quite the looker. Lucky her!
