Back in 1969 my mother gave me a hair dryer for Christmas.  Yeah, the 60's, so my hair was very long.  My dad not only didn't appreciate the hair and clothing of the 60's, but especially hated seeing me dry my hair like a girl, his words, not my own.  He thought it was too feminine.  Of course, now most men use them, at least those who still have some hair to blow dry, LOL!

Guess what?  34 years later I'm still using the same hair dryer after each shower.  Pretty amazing, huh?  Want to know the brand name?    

I appreciate you all, Merry Christmas, folks

God bless!

(by the way, a true story)

Hi Michael...Hair dryers can be used for all kinds of things...My old one is at the flower shop being used to blow the paint dry on funeral banners.  It is sure good to see you here!

Chris, didn't you mean an everlasting gobstopper?

LOL, see what you started Michael? Now I'm singing the HAIR tune, the BRYLCREAM jingle, and the I WANT IT NOW theme from the Wonka Factory!


Have a great day with sunshine and laughter.

What a great story Michael, and it is wonderful to see you here.  I think we all have some little "treasure" that has stayed with us for years, and mine strangely enough is a turkey roasting pan!  I would not part with it for anything.  A very Merry Christmas to you, and I sincerely hope that the angels continue to keep you held up with their wings.  God bless.

                    
Let there be peace on earth,
and let it begin with me.
