Does this place look familiar to any of you Fresno people?I use to get my hair cut here back in the 1960s!
My mom would take me and my 3 sisters here. For some reason, which I don't understand, it use to take us the better part of a day. Lots of waiting back then, lots of visiting.
Betty Freeman would cut our hair.
She had twins a few years before my mom had twins, in the very early 60s I think. I can still picture the twins in the stroller right by her while she would cut our hair. Turns out one of the twins, Terry, is in the ward right next to ours. He married Debbie, who use to be one of my Beehives in the Young Womens group in our church back in the 70s. And no, it doesn't stop there. One of Terry and Debbie's daughters went to the prom with one of my sons a few years back. Not sure you can follow all that. :)
That little baby in the stroller, Terry? He and Debbie have 2 of their children married now! Their daughter Stacey is in our ward now so I get to see her often. Stacey is a real sweetheart and everyone just LOVES her.
I went back there this week to get my hair done by Betty's daughter Brenda. I wanted to get a picture of Betty but she was in the adjoining house (where she lives) unfortunately not feeling very well. She is in her 80s now.
They still have the SAME COUCH that I use to sit on in the 60s.
It must have been recovered through the years, but Brenda did say it is indeed the same one!
Didn't mean to, but I seem to leave my mark wherever I go.
Notice my purse and pink sweater draped over that chair.
And my blue water cup to the left.
I did NOT like my hair cut growing up.
It wasn't Betty's fault though.
I'm sure my Mom requested it always be this short.
My bangs were so short, why did they even give them to me at all?
I never realized Richard's legs were even skinnier then mine.
Me, Heidi, and Robin. Don't know where Peggy is.
This one's for Robin (see her comment)
Here I am showing off the gold head band Betty gave me one day.
I'm wearing the nightgown and robe I refer to in my diary below.
Like I thought I could come up with a good hair style on my own? (below)
I did make my own dress though.
I made the one above too.
That was about the extent of my sewing career.
Scott has hardly changed through the years.
I was just about to finally throw away this diary from 1966,
but I first had to snag this page out being I wrote about going to Betty's.
I was 12.
