Locks of Love

I had the opportunity to complete a 3 year long project this week, i participated in a bet with a friend of mine from North Carolina, Dave and the whole Rogers Family. i don’t remember what the bet was about but if Dave grew his hair long, his kids would complete a task. I jokingly said, “I will do it too”, they held me to it.

After about 6-8 months the “Task” was complete and Dave had cut his hair. Well i live in Vegas and he neglected to tell me that happened, so after about a year i found out. at this point i said i am going to donate my tail to the Locks of Love Program. I found out they they need it at least 10 ” long pony tail and mine was not quite there plus had a bad case of the split ends, i told the stylist to trim it and i would wait a few more months. well she trimmed it back to a short hair cut so i was back at step 1. well not being a quitter and wanting to do this i let it grow again which brings us to yesterday almost 3 years from the original bet date. it was long enough and off it came! i also found out a few months ago that my mother had made several donations over the years and never said much about it. She passed away a few years ago, so it was a nice re connection as well.

i would like to thank Fantastic Sams as they participate in the program and make it easy to donate and get the hair to Locks Of Love. and a special thanks to Frieda from the Fantastic Sams on Craig Road in North Las Vegas for putting up with me, we had a lot of fun and and made it a even more special experience.

i would encourage any of you long haired hippies reading this to do the same. when you read and hear the stories it makes for a warm fuzzy that your just cant experience any other way.

Locks of love is a great organization and i am proud to donate to make what they do possible.
