Title Kid-Curlers
Description picked something. He came back to where I was waiting and wondering, and handed me a bouquet of the most gorgeous sweet-smelling wild roses you could ever imagine. It was more beautiful and meant more to me than any expensive corsage he could have purchased at a floral shop. It was his quiet way of showing his love for me. Every year for almost half a century, some time around the seventeenth of June, I would detect that sweet fragrance in the house, and there, sure enough, on the table would be the proverbial bouquet of wild roses without any ceremony or words attached, but the sentiment was there. KID-CURLERS Nellie Bjerregaard Gribble Logan, Utah Senior Division Second Place Anecdote How well I remember my first kid-curlers. When they came into being, there were a lot of happy kids--girls of course. Today, perhaps, some of the boys would have tried them because their name is suggestive of an early days Western character. We were so proud to have our hair tightly rolled in the latest style, store-bought curlers instead of having to sleep on those hard knots our mothers so laboriously tied in our hair with damp, frayed rags. When the curlers were removed, our hair hung in long strings like cork-screws - but after it was brushed out, we threw our heads about feeling as gay and frisky as colts with long, glossy manes. Of course we didn't know why curlers were so named. Being made from the skin of young goats sewed over a pliable wire gave us no plausible clue. To us, "kid-curlers" were just that--for kids. -90-
