I lost a good buddy this week...

I took this in Newport Beach when I was visiting during my autumn trip last year.  I had ridden my bike over to The Wedge, and looked out towards the jetty, and there was one of Carl's designs!  Somehow he keeps surprising me when I least expect it!

But the buddy I'm talking about now...was with me for a long time...(well not as long as Carl - 28 years).  I believe it was 10-15 years.  We went through thick and thin. We spent time arguing about the benefits and/or detriments of  long and short.  Did I like things hot, warm, or cool?  Fast or slow? Was I in a hurry? (when wasn't I?)

But it was over.  Something didn't feel right about it.  Everything it did, just felt so cold!  The last time this happened, it just stopped. Nothing. Nada.  Ka-put.

But first I needed to find a new one.  Ugh.  If you've read this for even a little while, you know I do not like shopping.  I went over to the local drug store.  Prices have come down, over the years, I thought.  I decided to buy the most expensive device.  It was $34 plus tax.  It had two controls: fast, medium, slow.  And hot, medium and cool.  That was one more switch than my old buddy had.

And color!  This has some great color.  And bigger! It hardly fits inside the drawer!

I'm talking about my hair dryer.  It was so faithful...lying in the bathroom drawer, each day waiting for me to fire it up.  But alas, it didn't have the heat any more.  I gave it a decent burial, in the carriage house recycle bin for electrical items.

Now that I've whacked off my silver bobbed hair...(it's been two weeks) this beast is hard to handle. I'm not sure if it is creating a windstorm for my head..or if there is a way to tame it, and I can learn to love it.

I'll figure it out.  Or I won't.

Live richly, marilyn


  1. Your hairdryer has certainly served you well. Time to get a new one!:) There's one hair dryer that I highly recommend. It's light (weighs just as heavy as your cellphone), has positive and negative ion switch and extremely quite. It won't turn your hair into a bird's nest because it's so gentle! It's called "Karmin G3 Salon Pro Professional hair dryer". It has ceramic heat, adjustable settings, cool shot button, dual voltage and all the works. best one I've used! :) Your hair is going to look amazing with this one. I know mine does!
