Thanks, all. Yes, E, I will save time!! I will also save elbow grease, 'cuz my hair is very dry, and when long, keeping it brushed and de-tangled is hard work, and takes a chunk of time. It will also be so lovely to be able to stick it under the shower when I feel like it, rather than when I have time to deal with it. (Thank God it doesn't grease up, or I would have been dead long since!)
Rob Jr was funny tonight. He came over for dinner, as he often does on Friday night. The roast was out and resting, and I came back downstairs until he arrived. When I heard footsteps upstairs, I knew he was here and went up. He was decanting the wine in the dining room, and I went into the kitchen to zap the veg and carve the meat, and while I was doing that, the two Robs arrived in the doorway, continuing the conversation that was in progress. Jr was saying something or other and suddenly interrupted himself with "Oh, my, that's different" (
it's important to note the propensity for understatement in that family
) However, he did express his approval.
It's true, it does take years off. Now I look like my mother (this is not a bad thing), rather than HER mother.
