Norwegian Farmer’s Son…September 18th

September 18th…“WHAT WAS FASHION LIKE WHEN YOU WERE IN HIGH SCHOOL AT BATTLE GROUND, WASHINGTON IN THE LATE 1960’S?”

POEM – “What We Dared To Wear!”  by N. Elliott Noorlun

The only limit was your imagination. 😉

What we dared to wear, When we all had hair,

Those days were lax, So we didn’t care,

What moms or dads, Or society thought,

Let’s give it a try, And maybe get caught.

A mini-skirt in 1969.

Letting our hair grow, Long and low,

It was the hippie, Way to go.

Tie dye bell bottoms.

Tie dyed Tshirts, Bell bottomed pants,

That usually scared, The uncles n aunts!

And ohhh the mini skirts, That caught the eye,

Of every wild, Red-blooded guy.

Elliott yearned to have some “Beatle Boots”….. just like were worn by the 1960’s rock group called, “The Beatles”.  😉

And who could resist, Some Beatle Boots,

Or the early rock group’s, Special suits.

Cause there in school, Back in those fun days,

You’d dress just like, The latest craze.

High, white “Hullabaloo” boots were the craze.

For the girls, Their boots were “Hullabaloo”,

White and tall, As they’d dance for you.

NFS 9.18e
The courage to be different.

It all depended, If you were brave,

To wear those styles, Or be a knave.

Were we silly kids?, Maybe so,

But those were the fashions, In the long ago.
