That was then....

Hello Saturday night. Well, almost night. It was a great day at work. It started with a new client who found me by searching the web for salons/hairdressers who specialize in cutting curly hair. I've gotten quite a few new clients from that website and am really glad to be developing a niche market for curly hair. I feel a bond to my sisters, ya know? Anyway, she was great and loved her hair. The rest of the day was smooth sailing. I had a client return to me after a year's absence. She came back a few months ago and tried a few other stylists, but now she's back home with me. She said she learned her lesson. I'm glad to know she appreciates me more now than she did before. And I'm thankful for each and every client that I have, even the ones who challenge my patience. And I have lots of patience!

Rob is in town tonight. Have I mentioned he lives about an hour away? We're going to a mutual friend's house tonight for Chinese food and games. Board games. Should be fun.

I've been playing with my scanner. I'll post old pics from time to time. This one was taken in the 70's. My hairdresser boyfriend bought me this dress in Hawaii. I don't remember the brand, but it was the real thing. I went to J.C. Penny's with the next boyfriend to have my portrait taken. We bought the whole package. Look at the hair! Look at the nails! Look at the young me! Wow. The boyfriend at the time was 18 and I was 23. He was a wild thing, and I was me. I lived an unauthentic life with him that lasted for years. By the time he left, I was in debt, something that took a long time to recover from. I have a few regrets, but a lot of good memories too. Anyway...this was me, then.

OMG...look at that GORGEOUS hair!!! And to think you hated it at one time! You're a real looker kiddo and you haven't changed that much....honest! Do you have any idea whatever happened to your old boyfriends? None of mine ever became millionaires so I have no regrets. LOLOLOLOL

I run into the hairdresser boyfriend every few years at a craft show I go to. I don't think he ever got over me :) The young bad boy contacted me last year after 20 years. We corresponded for a few months then he disappeared. It was good to hear from him and know that he made a success of his life.
