AAARGH! I had an opportunity to come up and attend the opening, but I couldn't free up the time.

Sounds like a terrific event.

I heard what they were paying. I'm surprised you did the gig.

I thought Lee Redmond cut her nails off last fall.

Lee may have done that, but if she did, they grow mighty fast.

She must have been using Lee (Redmond) Press-On nails.

A couple years ago I cut my 3 foot long dreadlocks off. I keep them stuck in a foam wig head, each lock in place where it was on my head. With todays advancements in hair weaving, I could have them back any day.

Nip, when I cut my hair 10 years ago (it was below my a$#). My Mother made a piece of folk art out of it. Have you ever seen the old Victorian hair art displays? You should make something out of them!!

I was planning on making a wig from it, then I would wear it. When people ask "Is that really your hair?" I could say "Yep!"
