Well, I know I have been absent for awhile. Work and family have kept me extremely busy. Both my mom and mother-in-law have had health problems. We have had a death in the family, our dear Aunt Emily, who was 93 years old and as sharp as a whip!! On the positive side, our son has graduated from his law school program at Ohio State University (see photo).

We are planning our first vacation in about 5 years. We are going to Scottsdale, AZ. I know it will be hot, but I just can't wait to get away. Our daughter will be joining us. We are planning to get full body massages, go horse back riding and just sit at the pool with a book. Oh yeah, I plan to take a nap or two in the middle of the day.

Well since this is a blog about hair, let me talk about that for a minute. I am sooooo happy with my hair. It is the hair that I used to see on others and admire. I have length, body and the right amount of fullness. I have been getting so many compliments and I am loving it!!!! I sort of want color, but my last experience was not positive. My hair became hard and brittle. I have been using a rinse, but want something with a little more pizazz. My only compliant about my hair is that several locks have lint embedded and this is discouraging. I tie my hair up about 90% of the time. I wonder if clothing, ie necklines don't also contribute. Any hints for getting the lint out? I have heard of folks talking about the use of markers to cover the lint. I did try teasing it out, but was instead interrupting the integrity of the lock. But once again, I must say, "I love my locks!!!"
