    Hilarious!! This pic was taken about 20 years ago (1986). I am sitting on the fenced windowsill to
    the right. Good heavens! I spent a couple of years with this all-girl band and we rocked the butts off the guys!

    We were doing pretty good, but I left after a while to play with some guys in the home arena. The band split shortly after I left.

    I thought you guys might find this old pic fun, especially those of you who were my age back then.

    Great picture! Gotta love the 80's, that was one of my favorite decades. I'm a little older than you, and I was never in a band, but there were some fun things going on back then. Thanks for sharing!

    Just curious, what did you play in the band. Are you still musical? I have my flute from when I was a kid....it is now an antique!

    looking group. What was the name of this sexy ensemble?

    I used to play the flute too, HL. I was in the H.S. band, despite the fact that I was lousy as a flautist. Haven't the faintest where my old flute is.

    Fun! I played base guitar. I had to stop about 8 years ago when my neuropathy started. I was pretty good, a studio musician as well, jazz, traditional, blues, trash metal (yeah!). The name of this group was Anashi (female goddess).

    Mind you- this was 20 years ago, those years and 3 pregnancies have done a number on me, not to mention this DD! I am a bleak shadow of back then. But good heavens, the 80's were good times! Pretty harmless era, won't you say?

    As for the girls- I met with them before I moved to the US, I heard the guitarist (the blond on the floor to the right) went to the US for a while. I haven't been home, but when I do go back I may try to find them! The guitarist was a guru, I still get chills down my spine when I hear her solos- nobody would believe it was a "gal! There were still some pregidous (spelling?) thoughts about women on stage back then, but that seems to be a thing of the past now.

    Am I the only one in the world waiting for the 80's hair to come back???

    I miss it and figure since they're bringin back skinny jeans and leggings, the hair is only one step behind.

    Great pic, you looked wonderful!

    I read your profile. I feel for you, I hope you find some support here, it can be a lonely path. I do the same (isolate), but I'm probably in better shape than you right now, although I might flare anytime.

    I clicked on your Pic and my iMac started to SMOKE!!

    You girls looked so great that your voices were most

    likely secondary to the "stage scenery"!!!

    Can you do an Encore?

    Oh, even farther, Walla Walla! 280 miles away. Rheumy's don't like the state medical coupons (medicaid), that's why! Shitty. A Rheumy stops by my docs office every other week but won't see me! Money, money money, like Mr Crabs says in Spongebob.

    I gotta say I loved the 80s. The picture is awesome and all of you ladies are very pretty. I have to show this pic to my husband because ya know all that 80s stuff is coming back and everytime my daughter dresses like that he just laughs. The old times are coming back to get him! He is much older than I am so I can say that.

    It is great to see such a great pic, it brings back old memmories!

    God Bless!

    My hair would break off, got a colic from wearing it like a ski hill to one side. Yeah hated washing my hair too. After all for that big hair you have to spend hours right? LOL, thanks for the memories!
