I had a great time reading it; seeing if I recognized any one I knew or remembered any of the places written about (I did.) I have also taken it to my neighbor who is a great local history buff.
Then I went to hairdresser yesterday and in walks an old friend I haven't seen in a couple years, Catherine Pate. She like I had gone to a "strange" hairdresser, while Susan Mullis was recuperating with her broken arm. Now we were both in the shop for repair work. So while Susan's daughter Tonya worked on our hair we got caught up on family and friends we have in common.
For the benefit of Gabby, one of my three readers, I will report that Rhonda and Marty's daughter Bracy is a Sophomore at Clemson on full scholarship majoring in architecture. Their son, whose name I've forgotten, has finished Ringling School of Art and is a video game inventor in Troy, New York.
It was such fun and exactly what I love about living in a small town.
Oh, and Monday at the library two former students came in and I got to get caught up on their lives. I was a proud librarian bragging about how MY former students are STILL readers :)
They even checked books in and out.....no videos...."no siree, Bob Tail Jack" as my Grandmother in law used to say.
And below you will see the result of the hair repair. Of course, if I stay with this color, I will have to change my whole huge wardrobe to autumn colors......hmmmmmmm.
What do you think....is this a keeper?
