Goodwill $1.99 grandma made me stop and go in and I found it!
As you know, Wednesday is Beauty shop day for my Grandmother. This week iv deiced im going to write a best selling book titled "Confessions from the chair" and the cover art will be some little old lady underneath a hair dryer. I'm telling you some of the Gossip and Confessions are OUT OF THIS WORLD! haha. There's one lady I particularity like, shes a character! She seems like a harsh little lady but shes got a heart of gold... she just says what ever pops into her mind though. Example : When I had my beard grown out for Jesus Christ Superstar she says "young man you could stand to lose some weight... or you could bleach that (beard) and Play Santa Clause..." to which I reply "Oh Ruth, you PEACH!" haha
I must admit Fanny Flagg got it right when she wrote...
"Texas Is big, DANG BIG....
We got BIG cars,
and BIG, BIG, Hair...."
Some of those blue haired belles can bat their hair up so high it almost doubles their height! If the ladies didn't fuss about me taking pictures while they were in curlers I could have gotten some artsy ones! This Beauty Shop is very much in the style of "Steel Magnolias". A whole line of Cokes with lipstick stained straws. Every now and then I'll take my record player and the "good" 45's up there and play them while my grandma get her hair and nails "done". I love seeing how they react to different songs, some they haven't heard in years. I also enjoy the stories they share, both nostalgic and scandalous!
