Signs of Fall

I know it is fall because there is a pumpkin outside my door. It called my name over and over again until I picked it out of the big pumpkin box at the grocery store. At first I thought I'd cook it, but then I saw my trusty spider all alone in the flower bed and thought they might enjoy a season together.

Other fall things are occuring too. In the last two weeks I have baked three lemon pies, two apple pies and one chocolate pie. I've also started cooking stew.
Oh, the leaves are starting to fall too.

News Item

O J is back in the news. What struck me was that he had to give up his passport. First thought: What if your bail depended on your being able to find you passport to give up? Could I find mine? Could you find yours? Ok, so most of you are organized and can find it. Go look. Is it still valid? If not, you'd better see about getting it renewed. I renewed mine last year...on line. Very simple. Only the cost hurt.

Everyone needs a valid passport. You can never tell when your grandmother is going to get on "The Price is Right" and win a trip for two to some exotic place. If she invites you, you'd have to have a passport. Then there is the possibility that you would be invited to participate in the international video game championship to be held in Norway next summer. Without a passport, you'd have to drop out of the contest. What a shame. Worst would be to miss a date with George Clooney in Italy. And on a more practical level, you do need that passport to give to the authorities when you are arrested for that exceptionally bad hair day that offends the whole world. I know you would be so embarrassed that you'd want to flee the country. I know that; the FBI knows that.

Order your new passport now and be prepared.

New Hairdresser

Finding a new hairdresser is tough. I started out asking for recommendations. First requirement is a location close to home. A lady and Curves recommended one really close. I went. Once was enough. My second attempt was to try my friend Margie Nichta's hairdresser. Her location is near Mom's house, so that is good.

You can see the result. She got more bounce out of me than I have seen in a long while, and I really liked the color job. The pictures are from the day of the appointment. Now, will I be able to produce the same effect?

Missing Hairdresser

Jo Starr has been my hairdresser for 22 years...ever since moving to San Antonio. She is my husband's cousin, and I dearly love our visits. The only drawback is that she lives and works in San Marcus. I have to drive a long way. Worse, she decided to get a new life. Sold her business and ran away to Alaska with an exciting dude!
