!Here is an excerpt of "Faith, Family, Friends, and Fried Chicken 2";  from the Chapter titled

"I Have Learned....Or Have I? "

I have learned…never to let your girls play “salon diva’s” and color your hair.  I remember once, when we were having a mother/daughter day (we did this one day a month, all four of us for over a year.)  I always, always wanted us to be close, to share memories and experiences together – the 4 Musketeers! Anyway, I remember one month for our mother/daughter day, the girls decided we were going to do our own “spa day”.  We did facials for each other, and neck/shoulder massages and then the girls decided to give me some “highlights” in my hair (I had never had highlights before)..... My hair was a disaster and came out ORANGE!

And Jimmie and I had a car show to attend that night.  I was in total shock.  The girls reply to my “Oh My Gosh! What have you done to me?” was a very quiet “well Mom, you shouldn’t have let us do it, we didn’t know what we were doing.” I am laughing out loud as I write this, remembering that great day!

When I returned home, Jimmie just shook his head and said, “Why do you do stuff  like that?” " I don’t know.", I replied,

" We were just having a “spa day” for goodness sakes!"

 The “fix” for my hair that night at the car show…I wore a baseball cap!
