This is a nice, long post! In some ways we're the same actually. Happy 100th post Tina! I'm glad I get to know you. You sound like one hairdresser that I can trust to touch my hair! (I am always scared going to one, since they always spoil the style).

hi Tina Louise,

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I came over here and WOW! All kinds of stuff to learn about you right off the bat.

I enjoy your exuberance! You should have had on there that you are very optimistic and good natured, that seems to show through.

I have a grandmother named Louise also. Actually, my grandmothers are both alive, and they are (REALLY, TRULY): Thelma and Louise. But not at all like the movie, I can promise you that.

See you soon!
