Manikin
(490 items)

For Amber who has watched my strange hair . This is the days of Flower children and wall paper :-) I didn't have my headband on or I was set to go to woodstock :-) A tie dye shirt and jeans lol . I remembered this one when I saw recent posts of those horse's photo's with tails to ground and manes on ground .
I was a RN on here and worked with Nam vets still . They dressed funky so I did too . I worked in Psychiatric care at this time . Was a hard time to see the guys coming back with serious drug problems and heroin addiction . Not to say all the Nam guys did it but this was a draft War and many were not cut out for what they would see . It left terrible affects on them and they used drugs in Nam to ease the trauma they saw . I do believe the drug crisis in USA started with Nam . That is only my opinion but we hardly ever heard of heroin or opiates till then . To this day I remember so many of their faces and the pain of what was a war they did not want to go to and were not supported when they got home . I love them all for serving our country

    Priceless! Brilliant! I laughed till I cried. Thank you sweet Mani, it's perfect in every way.
  2. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    I will just keep you guessing Amber what is next , In this one just tie me up with the horses for the circus exhibit :-)
  3. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    How did you not keep sitting on your hair?
  4. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    I put it on top of my head or pushed it aside to sit :-) I had to wear it up at work as a nurse during day .
  5. flowerrose, 2 years ago
    This is great Manikin. Better than the circus pony - Legendary. You could have donated your locks and made on awesome wig! p.s Loving the curtains contrasting with the wallpaper!!
  6. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    Good golly, I thought you were about 10 in this picture! Not old enough to be a nurse.
  7. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago


    They'll be ga ga at the go go ...... Give me a head with hair!

    Did you ever cut it, Mani, or have I missed that part?


  8. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you Amber :-) I was a very young nurse . I was a RN on here and worked with Nam vets still . They dressed funky so I did too . I worked in Psychiatric care at this time . Was a hard time to see the guys coming back with serious drug problems and heroin addiction . Not to say all the Nam guys did it but this was a draft War and many were not cut out for what they would see . It left terrible affects on them and they used drugs in Nam to ease the trauma they saw . I do believe the drug crisis in USA started with Nam . That is only my opinion but we hardly ever heard of heroin or opiates till then .

  9. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    Well thank you for your compassion and dedication dear Mani.
  10. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you vetraio50 ! :-) Glad to see you
  11. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    LOL Flowerrose :-) I hate to say it but I will confess I never cut it off so when I need a wig I have some hair to make one :-) Don't you love the oh so 70's curtains and wallpaper . And we thought it looked good . I wonder why we didn't get dizzy from all the yellow flowers .
  12. flowerrose, 2 years ago
    wow you never cut it!! that's incredible!!!!!!
    Is that Guinness Book of Records material?
  13. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    No I think the horse wins by a tail :-) Flowerrose lol
  14. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you mustang :-)

    Manikin, I love you hair!
  17. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago
    How did I miss this yesterday?
    What a cutie, you where a blessing to those returning vets I'm sure. I'm sure your humour, compassion & kindness must have helped many of them.
  18. Bruce99 Bruce99, 2 years ago
    Horse? No, no, no...Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair! :)
  19. toolate2 toolate2, 2 years ago
    I think I my have dated you..lol.. How long is your hair now? My daughter's 5th grade teacher had hair she could walk on. I think it's beautiful...but a lot of work!!
  20. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    LOL toolate you better post a photo of you I can see you and if we dated:-)
  21. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you Bruce . I thought it looked like the horse tails but Rapunzel is better but not sure I would want to be locked up in a tower and if toolate came to get me for a date I hope my hair was long enough to be rescued :-)
  22. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you mrmaj :-)
  23. Militarist Militarist, 2 years ago
    Wow! Some whig maker would have been real happy to get that when you cut it off.
  24. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thanks Militarist . But I might need it too :-) This was doing time I was still working as a Nurse for Nam . I was transferred to a hospital for Psychiatric care of returning soldiers .
  25. Militarist Militarist, 2 years ago
    I can't even begin to imagine what that must have been like but it sounds like it was enough to make you want to pull your own hair out. In any event I salute you for your service.
  26. lisa lisa, 2 years ago
    Wow. People think my hair is long, and you've got a good two feet on me. I don't think I could afford that much conditioner!
  27. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    I actually got back more from the guys than I ever could ever give Militarist . I learned about the value of life and survival . Thank you for nice comments and I would not change my Vietnam time I wish it never happened but again I loved every guy ever took care and they always treated me good .
  28. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thanks Lisa :-) Helps to have a friend that works in sales of hair products :-)
  29. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you packrat !!!!!
  30. packrat-place packrat-place, 2 years ago
    You are most welcome.
    I remember those times well. Where did the time go?
  31. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    It was gone it what seems like a blink of the eye packrat :-(
  32. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you AR(Kevin) I won't tell when I cut mine ok :-) Thanks for stopping always happy to see you . Did your wife grow it back for you ? :-)
  33. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Kevin I can relate to your girls :-) I had a boy pulling my ponytail all the time in 3rd grade who sat behind me . One day I had enough and got up and punched him square in the mouth and knocked out his front tooth . His name was Danny A red headed kid I can still see him anyway I got sent home and he went to a dentist . he never pulled my hair again . I didn't know about the family jewel place yet as I had no brothers and didn't know about that yet but I could pack a pretty good right blow . You were right in telling the girls about boys liking to pull hair . I think now it was because they liked you :-) Gray hair is beautiful . I am not grey and may never be as genetics are in my favor to not get grey . But my sister is and it beautiful on her as I am sure your wife's hair is . I was a Navy brat remember and my Dad was in a few scuffles that I saw so I learned about the punch and I also lived in Navy land San Diego . Oh I just remembered Danny boy the hair puller is on one of my posts :-) I have to see if his tooth is still in when photo's were taken .
  34. Bruce99 Bruce99, 2 years ago
    Manikin, you're awesome! Thank you for taking care of American Vets who needed it most!

    Kevin, you kind of remind me of the movie "Witness", where Harrison Ford gets a little out of Amish character right after he hears "“Hey watch it Frank, he’s gonna hit you with his bible.” LOL! Sounds like you did some smiting of bullies in your time. Good for you.
  35. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you Bellin !
  36. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Bruce it was my honor to care for the Vietnam troops . As I said I loved them all
    Thank you for the kind words
  37. ThriftyGypsy ThriftyGypsy, 2 years ago
    Manikin, I am speechless ! Your hair was awesome !!!! I can't imagine how much time you spent on it. It was time well spent because it was beautiful, ( and I am sure it still is! ). Talk to you later, TG

    Hey Mani you're #2 this week and #9 in the month!
    Congratulations!
  44. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Wow thanks Vetraio50 for letting me know . It shows that the good people of CW do support all our Vietnam soldiers . Hats off to them it was long overdo . Hey I made a statement that rings true my long hair can signify how long overdo the story of Nam has been talked about more . I love love your glassware . I went to garage today to look at some things left over from when we had antique mall and what did I do unpacked one box and broke the first piece of glassware in it :-( I am just afraid of doing just that with all your beautiful pieces do you ever have any oh no I broke it moments ? Thanks again !
  45. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Don't remind me! There was the Berlage Ovata vase that went missing when I moved home ten years back ...... a thousand tears back too. Collateral damage! It comes from being tired and being in a hurry. Festina lente!
  46. mikielikesigns2 mikielikesigns2, 2 years ago
    WOW!! wonna donate some of that? Mines gettin alittle thin on top!
  47. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Gee Mikie I was thinking I might need it myself but maybe I could spare a bit for you ? Is Auburn a good color for you :-) Thanks for coming by always enjoy seeing you :-)
  48. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Vet I hope I didn't bring back a memory you wanted to forget :-( I would have been sick about it too . Lucky the one I broke today was a fairly inexpensive fenton, nothing as fantastic as your Berlage Ovata vase . If your at the Opera House please say Hi to my good friend Lynda will you :-) Do you ever go there ?
  49. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    I do go down every once in a while tho my friend Yvonne works there as I mentioned. Recently she took me around behind stage doors on a tour of the bowels of the place. What I intend to do is a photo with the tee shirt in the area either on the ferry or from the bridge. Waiting for the right moment!

    Love it, reminds me of my wife before I met her, those were the days.
    I wish she had never cut it, she did get many compliments on her hair.
    She said it was very hard to take care of, and it took too long to get ready for work.
  76. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you collector4 :-) It is harder to take care of than short . I know what your wife means. So glad to have you stop at my post .
