Back...to...Black...

Oh...my...
Back....
to Black...
What can I say...
I don't know...What gets into me...about my hair...
{I do....come from Generations...of Beauticians...}
{and...they would ALL have a FIT...seeing...This...
and...not just the Color...
They'd have the Shears Out...as Well!!!}
I wrote...all about Yesterday's Journey....today...
However...
I left out...
the 'Back to Black'...chapter...: )
I... for the Most Part...
prefer...
Red...
Craaaaazy...Red!
but...this time of year...always...Tempts me...to go...
Back...to Black...
{yeah...I'm Crazy....: ) }
As I was coloring my hair...
{now...with Soooo Much Gray....it takes...35 minutes...}....
I was scoping out Auctions....while waiting....
I ran across...an Auction...that was going to start....just a few hours...away...
and..it was an hour...and a half...drive from Home....
There was an interesting...Cupboard...on it...
So...I called the Clerk...
after...I got my hair...dry...
{oh... my...it is...B L A C K.... }
{oh...dear...}...
She told me...at their Auction...they sell Furniture...First...
I knew...time was going to be...tight...
I told her what I was looking at...and...if I wasn't there...Please....wait...
and I'd be there...
She said...to let her know...as soon as I arrived...
I said..."Honey...You are gonna know me...when I Blow Through the Door...
I look like a Very {very}...PLUMP...and...Elderly...
Amy Winehouse...
or...
Gene Simmons...on Hormone Therapy!!!!"
{she... Roared...: ) }
{I told her...I had...Just...Colored my Hair...and...it was...Scary!}
I made the Auction..well...before it started...
The Clerk....knew me...right off...: )
{Black...Bouffant...Hair...Tall...Turquoise...Cowboy Boots...
ahhhh...yeah...}
{not to mention...the tattered...Blue Jeans...OLD...Flannel Shirt...and..Gnarly...Denim...Jacket...
oh..my...a...Mess...}
{we...won't even...Think...about the Patchouli...Stink...oh my...}
oh..my...
Sometimes...I wonder... why...I can't...Simply...
 be..'Normal'...
I try...
I truly...do...
but...
'Crazy'...
always...wins....
yep...it always....always...wins....
Love...to ya...

My...Auction...Attire....oh...dear...
I Hate...taking my picture... but...wanted to prepare...folks... for my New...Doooo...
{I had some...strange...looks...today...from Folks...
and... I shared the 'Gene Simmons...Amy'...comparison...
It's...always good...for a Laugh!
{I told ya......It's Gonna Be a "FUN"...Year..: ) }
yeah...they know...
I'm...Crazy...: )
But Then...
all the Best People...
are...: )
My Gift...for the Day... Sweet...Pegadoo...and...Her..Babe...
on their way Home...from Mayo...
It was Sooo Good seeing them...
Peg...looks...Better...than...EVER!!!
Peg said...my hair didn't look...'bad'..."I can see...some Red Highlights!"...she said...
Seriously...after All of The Red...I have Coating My Hair...
there is No Way...Black...could EVER... Cover it!!!!
{see...this... is Why...I Love Her So! oh my...}
Then...another friend...popped in...and about fell over...
I shared with her...what Peg..had said...about the red...
Her reply..." It Looks...Frickin' BLACK...to me..."...
ahhh...yep...
It Is...What It Is!
: )
 
This...is a Great...Old Cupboard....John will have ready...for The Anamosa Show...on the 20th...
It's...a Sweet Heart!
Straight..off the Farm!
{There will be some...Very...Very...'Fun'...Stuff...at Anamosa! Be There!!!
 Mark and I...are Loaded For Bear!!!}
{and...John...he hasn't said...One...Single Word...about...the HAIR.....: ) }
That...is What I Love...about him...
Tho...he Never...says...I look good... ever...
He...also...never says...
I look...Bad...ever...
I Take That...
as a HUGE....Compliment...

{I want to say... I LOVE...this Amy Winehouse...Video...and...Loved...her too...
what a ...Tragic...Loss....
She...soooo Reminds...me of my...Best Friend....when...I was Young...
Doreen...
 She was 17...when killed...in an accident....
I was...one of her...Pallbearers...
{I...was 15...}
I remember Doreen...sharing one of her beautiful...sketches...with me...shortly...before she died...
{she...was also...like...Amy...an Amazing...Artist...}
{She...Truly...Was...So...Full...of...Life...and...Talent...}
 It was of a Girl... with her back...facing...out...
 The Girl...was Astride... a Horse....
Overlooking...a Cemetery....
It wasn't long...after that...
I...was...looking...over her...Grave....
so...similar...to this video....}
{Doreen...and I...made the the Millersberg...Ride... on Horseback....{a 60 mile...trip...} one year...
While riding....past this...house..
she said...to me...
"I'm Gonna...Live There...some day...."...
{It looked like a nice place...but...I never gave it a thought...}
I...have lived here...now...over 30... years...
oh...my....
The...Journey....
Some...day...I'll...write a Book...just about...Mine...and Doreen's...brief....Journey...
{tho...it seemed...like...a Life Time...
at...the time....
To her...
I...guess...it...was....}
oh my...
oh...my...
