A white haired old lady

At 15 a beautician cutting my hair said, "You have some gray hairs." For many years I did my part to support the bottom line of Clairol and L'Oreal. At 40 my hair was very salt and pepper-y. It's been truly white for a good while. I like it that way!

In the past week two clerks in two stores where I would never think of asking offered me a "senior discount." I don't know if such discounts are particularly prevalent in this part of the country, if it's a result of the recession to encourage return visits or if it's becoming the rule in general. I like it!

Beautiful photo. Beautiful hair. If my gray were coming in as nicely as yours, I'd go with it, but it's very mousey.

I hated it when clerks started offering me senior discounts BEFORE I qualified, but now I revel in it. There has to be SOME benefit, right?

June, my hair was a beautful white. Then my children suggested I go back to my years of being a blonde. So now being blonde I kind of like it but it is a pain to keep it up. However, I did notice that clerks never offer me a discount now? Can it be the hair?
