Making (Hair) Do: The “Quarantine Coif”

Wayne, an essential worker, still leaves home Monday through Friday while I only venture off our property to walk around the neighborhood. Like everywhere else barber and salon visits are out. According to headlines, home hair coloring and grooming supplies are selling out. I’ve read many comments about how awful it is that one can’t cover up their gray hair.

They needed a good cleaning but other than a smattering of cracks and pops they sound great! Continue reading “Saturday Morning Picking at Yard Sales & Arundel Flea Market”
