If two wives are good ...

My half-third cousin who has been collaborating with me to sort out my great-grandfather's family thinks that he has found the elusive Anne Thomas, while I think that I may have unearthed Mary Morgan, from whom my cousin is probably descended. However, since the only concrete evidence we have as to Anne's existence is the possibly doubtful memory of my great-great aunt Charlotte, or Charlotta as she appeared to prefer, listing her half-brothers (gone missing; possibly dead) and their mother (Anne Thomas) on her father's death certificate we have a long way to go to actually verify them and that is not going to be easy as none of them is where they should be.

As my cousin remarked "They must have hated their descendants.".

And it is official ... I have healthy hair! I was complaining to my hairdresser that my hair was growing too quickly. He said that it takes something like 23 enzymes to grow happy hair and that only happy hair grows fast. Nice to know - I guess. A rather useless piece of trivia.

There was a terribly bad hair day yesterday at COTA. I had been notified on 7th July that I had three clients booked for yesterday and that Himself had two. As we received no further information we both turned up before 10.00am only to be told that Himself's clients had both cancelled and two of my three had done the same thing; my only client was booked for 1.30pm. Himself went home and I hung around until 1.40, decided that my only client had decided not to come and left. She turned up about 10 minutes after I left, according to an email I received from a very sympathetic receptionist, with the excuse that her bus was late. Twenty minutes late??

A bit of cat trivia from I book which I received for my birthday:

"Everything I know I learned from my cat: When you're hungry, eat. When you're tired, nap in a sunbeam. When you go to the vet's, pee on your owner", - Gary Smith
