I read The Hobbit so many times when I was young the spine on the book was cracking! I wasn't too into the Lord of the Rings but LOVED The Hobbit!

I believe you are old enough now that you can choose your own hair color and to heck with everyone else.

Babe I let myself go all gray. Now it is all white. I wish it would hurry up and finish being all white. My natural color was red. So if I were to continue coloring it, it would still come out red.

We have a tenant here that is 92. She has a full head of blonde hair, wears makeup done very tastly, and all her jewels. And she makes her monthly trip to the hairdressers. It makes her feel good also. So go for it.

I dyed mine blonde, too...now I want it to grow out as I am tired of the upkeep. So I have about two inches of gray and two of blonde, I guess I should just get a rinse. Don't really want to get it cut now.

Mother nature used to color my hair but she has apparently gotten tired of doing that so now it's grey.

My niece read all the Hobbit books. She loves them And of course she has read them so many times. So one year her mother bought her a beautiful bound set of the books. They are the treasure of her life.
