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.
