payroll tax increase?

P-shaw. I’ll just get my hair

cut out of a barn.

.

Well, not literally out of a barn. I just liked the way that sounded and it made my country life seem all that more country. I’ve actually gotten the name of a woman who cuts hair out of her basement and she charges a third of what my hairdresser (who is fabulous) usually charges. I feel bad to discontinue with my present hairdresser because he is the nicest guy, he charges a reasonable rate and he does great work. But it’s time for me to make a change.

my troubled heart and grey roots –

In two hours I’m changed.

I let my gray hair grow in?

Spring passes quickly.

to sleep. I stroke his hair and
