Farrah

Back in the day...
She, along with the other Angels, was pretty much all we 18 year olds had, long before the days of rapid media. There was an innocence, believe me.
She had that wonderful wonderful smile. And the hair, of course. I still have all her posters somewhere - "the swimsuit," where the trick was to find the word 'sex' in her wild feathered mane, the door-length dressed in a blue snug outfit on a bike, the leggy nude paisley shot, and more - just smiling. Innocent enough that snuck-in-thru-the-window coeds didn't seem offended when they saw them tacked on the wall of my dorm. They just smiled back at Ms. Fawcett it seems. But it might've made them a wee bit more self-conscience and they'd start brushing their hair.

Yet...my favorite pinup was always this one simply titled 'Farrah Flower.' It just made me smile.

Lovely tribute, Phil.

WT announced her death on the evening she died. My youngest son and his girlfriend had blank faces. They didn't know who she was. Now, that made me feel old.
