Wild Hair

      Dan and I generally stay in close contact during the day. After a fast paced weekend I was expecting him to be wiped out Monday night. He checked in to say he would be home within the hour. Two hours later he had not arrived and was not answering his phone. Just as I was about to panic and start looking for him, he arrived.

      Surprisingly he was all smiles and full of energy. He asks, “How does my hair look?” Of course it looked the same as always, plastered with extra hold hair spray that defies gale force winds. “Why do you ask?” He explained on the way home he discovered a Ford convertible for sale and decided to take it for a test drive. Even at 70 miles per hour, every hair was in place. He found the ride to be surprisingly quite. He could even hear the radio with the top down. Maybe that’s why the cell phone was not answered?

       Not exactly my litmus test for a convertible, but rates high on Dan’s list. To me a convertible represents freedom and wind blowing through your hair. A young man once asked, “Mr. Dan, how do you get your hair to look like a sun visor?” His parents were mortified. We thought it was hysterical. The obvious simply cannot be denied.

     He is now even more excited about our fall cross country trip. “I just can’t wait!” he says. Warmer months are totally out of the question. The heat might melt his hair. We wouldn’t want anything to hamper the fun our much anticipated trip!

      If therefore the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36

A good cut allows hair to blow all around and still fall into place. You Dan sounds like a neat guy with great taste for cars!

Yes, Dan is a God send, literally. Are you still in San Diego? We are leaving, Lord willing, on Oct 30 for eight days.

I am trying to wean myself off hairspray, which is really hard for me to do because hair touching my face drives me nuts!

A convertible without a hat - I couldn't imagine that!

Yes...we are still addicted to super hold hairspray in our household...he too cannot stand hair to touch his face!
