Good morning.
I'm pleased to announce, my back is back!   :-)
There was no aching yesterday morning.  I will continue to do the exercises, at least for a while and will  try to do them semi regularly to keep my back in shape.
In other news....
I've got a customer I've done for many years. She's divorced and lives alone. Her one daughter lives in Dallas. She comes in every 4 weeks for cut and color. Occasionally, she asks to post date a check for a week as she is sometimes low on cash. She has been helping support her daughter in Dallas while she was in law school. She's been helping her daughter for years. I think she's coddling her too much. Any time she calls, her mom sends her money.  I'm thinking, come on! she's 38! She should be supporting herself! Anyway, yesterday she comes in, say she too poor to get the haircut. And could she post date a check. She's been sending a lot of money to her daughter. I find out her daughter has just gotten a divorce after just 10 months of marriage where the husband never had a job. I also find out my customer sent her money for an abortion too. I'm thinking, this girl woman is a mess! So I say when do you want the check deposited. She say could you hold it until Nov 9th? I'm thinking 2 weeks? Really? I say "sure. That will be fine".
 I know, I'm such a nice guy.  :-)
It's been a busy week in the Salon, and today I'm  working later than usual which is fine as our short warm spell has ended and we may even get some of that icky white stuff before the weekend is over.
And here's a few pics from the yard I took last weekend...

Pretty late fall colors.
And surprisingly, as late as it is, grass coming in nicely in the second flower bed reduction area.
After work today, I've got another person coming out to take a look at the water heater issue. We decided to try the guy that put in the new water heater at the Salon. He seems very knowledgeable and very reasonable.  I'll let you know what we decide to do.
Have a great weekend!


  1. What we have found is grass loves to sprout in cooler areas. We reseeded the back yard, and all the shady spots sprouted and were growing.
    Thought we'd have to redo the rest, but it cooled off and sprouted everywhere.

    Don't overdo it, but you could probably finish the rest that you're wanting to do, too.

    Thanks, Wayne!

  2. I was at the lake all day yesterday, people running around with no shirts it was so warm, woke up today...brrrrrr we need a parka :)

    have a great weekend

  3. I absolutely love your yard! So gorgeous.

    Too bad on the lady with the spongy daughter. I hear lots of stories from my banking customers. Sad.
