So now I'm your Tuesday morning entertainment? Kinda like the Sunday funnies?

I wasn't going to write this article. I talked myself out of it a few times, but it had to be written because wild columbine was/is an important plant. Embarrassing, though...

I left out the worst part. My head got hot beneath all that lard and the scarf/turban. The lard melted. I spent the entire day wiping lard off my face and neck and the rest of it made its way down my back. Lard doesn't have a very pleasant odor, it was November and the house was quite warm. I reckon I could have called it a hot oil treatment.

Thanks for another fabby Aunt Bett story Shar. My long curlaceous hair is still collecting twigs and cats and blossoms. Once I was serving appies in the garden and when I leaned over a caterpiller fell out ofmy hair onto the tray. I said "O Bonus. Extra Protein" Thankfully my guests were dear gardening buds so thought it was funny.

"Serving Protein: DNut's Caterpillar Story"

See, you could easily write you own, Dahlia. Great apple story.

Though my hair is not as long as it once was, it does still wave in the wind and catch a few things along the way...seeds, leaves...hummers...

Thank you, Dahlia.

Thanks, Linny!

You live in one of my favorite states, which has nothing to do with the article, but does have to do with some wonderful memories of vacations when I was growing up.
