Good locks with that

Hudson laughs…

The little peregrine eyas is back on the roof as of this afternoon,  drenched by Glenn so he would preen rather than blindly flee at his release; he has seen his brothers and they have looked up and seen him. Dude! Where ya been!

I took a ride in the Radio Flyer wagon! You’ll never believe it!

(Actually, he rode back up in the elevator in the traditional peregrine-baby-rescue apple box. Don’t know why it’s always an apple box. But it’s always an apple box.)


The area where they shaved my scalp for skin cancer surgery, July two years ago: I’ve been waiting a long time for that hair to grow back in, wearing it pulled back from my face in combs so the gaps wouldn’t show.And then there was that time last August where we had to whack a bit nice and close to free me from the back of the hair dryer when we were defrosting the freezer. (You might want to check to see if there’s a protective screen covering yours. The hair dryer, I mean. I’ve heard from half a dozen people now who’ve had the same thing happen.)

It was time. My friend Nina’s daughter Gwyneth is a gifted stylist, the only person I would ever go to for as long as she may live around here, and I made an appointment for last Friday, showed her how things were at this point, and asked her help.

It’s still a little below the shoulders in back–I gotta do my earth mother/artiste thing–but it’s a lot shorter; she did a fabulous job and I am very very happy with how it came out. I keep looking at this one spot (and that one and that one), thinking, how did you DO that? How did you get that to behave exactly perfectly in the pattern it was going to curl into once it was shorter?

All of this is of no real importance to anybody but me, but I wanted to record it so I could go back later and see when that cut was. Also because I know how hard it is to find someone you absolutely trust with your hair, and if anyone around here is looking, everybody I know who’s ever gone to her has had the same reaction: Gwyn is absolutely the best.

Oh let’s not go there! I had the best hairdresser for about 8 or 9 years and then she had to go and get married and have kids! How dare she have a life! LOL! I wandered through the world for the next 15 years looking for someone who would actually listen carefully to my requests. I finally put on my big girl panties and picked up the scissors and cut my own hair short and layered and loved it! Did that for quite a few years until I decided to let my hair grow long again. I desperately needed shaping and took a chance at a new local shop and I was tickled pink with the results! She’s young so I run the risk of losing her to marriage and children but for now…

Let’s see. What comes first? Ah, yes. Why the apple box? Perhaps because it smells good.

Hudson is adorable.

You actually RODE in one of those wagons? They look pretty small. Which model? Sure looked like a bunch. When I was growing up, there was a wagon called the Flexible Flyer. We called them ‘Flexxies’.

And finally, when do we get a photo of your new hairdo?

I will echo the “show us your new do!” sentiments, and also that it is a blessed thing to have a good hairdresser…my DH doesn’t understand why I tip the girls very well, but then he has a buzz cut…that he does himself, once a week…how could he understand?

Hunter is amazing! I lovelovelove the littles when they laugh (and when they don’t)!
