The Latest in Helmet Fashion


Remember that old commercial, I think probably from the '70's that had the tag line: "Curlers in your hair...shame on you!"? It was in reference to those ladies who went outside their homes with curlers in their hair. Well last week we were singing "Curlers in Mom's hair, we thank you!". My 76 year old mom was out in her back yard with curlers in her hair. I have no idea what she was doing, but one of her bird houses that hang from a tree fell down and conked her on the noggin. Her comment: "Thank goodness I had curlers in my hair." Apparently, those curlers acted like a helmet of sorts, and that old bird house just bounced right off. Hmmm, she may be onto something here. Maybe I can somehow patent the idea and start marketing it. I mean, if it's okay for Mona and Mom, it could be the next big trend!

LOL! If I start to see ladies on motorcycles with curlers in, I'll know where they got the idea.

So cute! I can see those pink and green curlers now...if they are the same ones that my grandmother wears.

What fun Susanne! I used to sleep on rollers the size of o.j. cans! I can't imagine how I did it.

Goodness! I'm glad she wasn't hurt!

You just might be on to something here.....an added bonus would be that after protecting your head all day, your hair is pretty for your date that night!
