Yesterday was my monthly appointment at my hairdresser Winnie, owner of “Une Belle-Vous” in Krugersdorp (Gauteng, South Africa), for a trim and, most importantly, some ‘hilites’, to lighten my hair.
.
I was born blond and spent all my life as a blonde, until my late fifties, when my hair inexplicably started getting darker and darker and the only solution was the hairdresser! All my life I’ve been the butt of blond jokes, but now I can quote Dolly Parton, “I’m not offended by all the dumb-blonde jokes because I know that I’m not dumb.  I also know I’m not blonde!”
.
Isn’t it amazing how our whole being of who we are is somehow tied up with what’s ON our head (instead of what’s IN it?) I mean, we all know ‘blondes have more fun!’, but how absurd can that be, it’s like ‘judging a book by its cover’, isn’t it? Then there’s the down-turn of being blond – Anita Loos said, “Gentlemen prefer blondes… but gentlemen marry brunettes” – well, seeing as I’m married already, I think I’ll settle for the blond! 
.
Now that actually brings me to what this post is really about – having my daily fix of a Latté! ‘Une Belle-Vous’ sports a lovely little restaurant and coffee bar, “Bistrot de Paris”, and they serve the most delectable meals and coffees in a gorgeous up-market setting with a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Nothing better than going blond and enjoying a Latté in the process!

Way too much coffee.  But if it weren’t for the coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever!*
