The Sock Hop was a great success..everyone had a great time and me especially. The gents loved wearing the black motor cycle jacket and had a great time pretending the candy cigarettes was the real thing. I kept rolling them up in their sleeves asking them if they did that when they were young..only a couple did..I said good, now you get the relive the childhood you never had. We had malteds, I made pink scarves(ran out) and used some other material for the lady's...put Joe and Louis's hair in duck tails and with the candy cigarette and the jacket they looked really cool..We had pink lipstick and nail polish but most of the ladies didn't want their hair touched and they already had their nails done. I was at it from 7a.m. till 5 p.m. I'm still recouping ..wore me out..Have leg cramps you wouldn't believe..But it was worth it...I read some of the stats of stuff that happened in the 50's. The cost of new houses, wages etc. and told them that in the 50's the life expectancy of men was 61 and women was 65..told them to give them selves a hand ..they beat the record and they were still here and going strong. I'll post pictures tomorrow..tonight?I'm too pooped...have a great weekend...
