Okay I did it, I accompanied my wife and daughter to the Peddler show that was in Abilene Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Wow, you can find just about anything in the world at this show. I was doing as any good husband does is, following behind taking in the sights when all of a sudden my daughter the princess hits the brakes and hollers mom stop, look they've got them here, hair feathers. Please momma please, can I have at least just one hair feather put in? Hearing all this I knew I would be in for an eventful ride with these two. It was decided that the best color of feather to put in her hair was a school color purple. All the while I'm racking my brain trying to figure out why "a feather in her hair" in the first place, but then the thought hit me. What bird has feathers this color? Needless to say the feathers were bought, installed and explicit instructions on how to care for this new addendum were given. Which I might add, I once saw hippies of the 70's with similar feathers dangling from their ears, but that's for another blog.
