When Farrah Fawcett Ruled the World

Farrah Fawcett-Majors. The name that all boys drooled over back in the late 70s and early 80s. Seems like you couldn't go to the mall, school, or a ball game without seeing a t-shirt with Farrah or Charlie's Angels on it. As a kid, there was no woman in the world but Farrah. I had a small collection of Farrah stuff when I was a kid including Charlie's Angels trading cards, a t-shirt (which I still have), puzzles, posters, pillow, mug, etc.

Here is a mug I found for $5 a few years ago in an antique store in Oklahoma. I snatched it up immediately because I had this exact one as a kid. I used to fill it up with milk, mix in the Nesquik, and drink away. Mine is long gone, but now I have this one in its place. I also had a puzzle and poster which I proudly hung on my wall of this same photograph on the mug.

Here is my pillow from when I was a kid. I remember buying it at a garage sale for something like 50 cents. Yes, even back when I was a kid we used to go to garage sales. I also had a poster with this picture as well.

Those were the days. But, since this time, what in the world has happened to my Farrah? So disappointing. But, I choose to remember her from back in the day.

I love Charlie's Angels! I have the dolls, cards and some eps on tape. Farrah was cool, but I was a Kelly fan. But I never thought the doll or glamour head incarnations of Farrah ever did her justice. They were all so...ugly. She was so radiant and beautiful in the 70s and that's how I'll always remember her too.

Kelly was pretty high up there on the list too! Heck, even Sabrina was up there. Guess that's why they were the Angels.
