"In the Pink!" Hair that is.......and My Elizabeth Taylor Connection..tee-hee...

Too fun! I got my "Hairdid" today! I'm lovin' the Fushia! ........I even match my Shower Curtain!

Strollin' through my usual Grocery store this afternoon, I got lots of comments! Hey, this gal may have Two Chins now, but she's not going to settle lightly into Middle age! (If you'd seen me today, after "getting Pinked"  you might have noticed a slight jump in my step!) I'm liking this!

Not quite done though,,,,headed tomorrow to  see Tim at Aphroditie's Salon for a bit of "Bling" as well.........Life is short!

I thought it somewhat ironic that Today, of all days, I had scheduled to "Go Pink."  The Bios this morning of Liz Taylor's life and her attitude of not really caring what other people thought of her, just doing her "own thing" struck a cord. I kind of felt like my "Pink rebellion" was my own little tribute to her. But it also reminded me of a great man I dated years ago..............

This is fun to recall and share! I briefly dated a man  back in the early 90's, that was THE Best Man at Elizabeth Taylor 1st Wedding,,,,,to Nicky Hilton. This morning's news reminded me of the gentleman, bazillionaire, encouraging, unpretentious and extremely handsome man (He looked a LOT like Robert Mitchum- cleft in the chin and all). Leon went to school with the Hilton brothers. As far as I know he Never married,,,,and I met him when he was about 60----yep, a couple of decades older than Moi at the time.
But again, I reiterate, he was a gentlemen, and while he was building Highways, bridges and Dams across the US?? He'd encourage me, at the time in my little advertising business in my partner's basement. 

So hats off today! And my pink hair swinging in the Sunshine......(for we had some once again today here!)
Smiles for Liz,,,and my former Beau, Leon.

(Someday I'll have to tell you all about "Paddie," the little Italian Private Eye who introduced me to Leon. Think "Pirate Shirting"-crisp white cotton with HUGE billowing sleeves and long buttoned cuffs extending to nearly the elbow. Think gesticulating hands and arms,,,,,a head of wiry, curly grey hair. Think a Fine Chianti.  He is/was a Mystery novel waiting to happen.)

Great Day,,,,,Pink hair,,,,,,memories of a former "Beau," Liz Taylor,  eccentric "Paddie" and Sunshine! It doesn't get much better than THAT!

Enjoy your Week!
Hugs, Love and a Couple Degrees of Separation Bus on the Cheek!
