Much of what is fad or fashion is a take off on what all the hot movie stars are doing or wearing. In the late 70's, Farrah Fawcett was the hot female star. Her hair was long with loose curls. She wore tight jeans and tight shirts. John Travolta was the famous male star. He had medium length hair, wore tight jeans and boots. Stars like these were the trend setters in the 70's and early 80's. Today's kids are doing the same thing with the newer, famous pie. Farrah and John are out and are even made fun of. The time's rock stars were also. trend setters. The music has changed considerably over the years. Disco was big with the Bee Gee's, Olivia Newton John, Rolling Stones, Bob Seager. Now the hot groups are Def Leppard, Inxs, and U-2, although every once in a while you do hear those classic rock songs of days of ol& E verything has changed over the years. Fashion comes and it goes. I have grown up with society's youth and have seen and heard most everything. Some of it I understand and some of it I don't. What amazes me most are the students of Perkins-Tryon High School. They're great. Have you ever just stood around and observ- ed people? That's what I do for s living, just hang around here and watch and listen. A lot of people don't appreciate me. So next time you walk under my branches, think about what you are saying. Because someone is always hanging around.
