got-melanocortin-1 .........Of course I joined THAT group!


There was just no doubt that I’d join this group!
Apparently there was a movie, called: The Man Who Loved redheads.
Unfortunately, I believe this was not such a happy film.
So I don’t think I should write that this might have something to do with the story of my life……….however………….
I have no doubt that there have been times, during my 37 years in the primary schools, that it has been suspected that red-heads were in danger of being teacher’s pet.
Tried very hard and I hope I was mainly successful to make sure that this was not reality but, I guess, there’s more to language then just words.
..
Years ago, I knew a young lady for a while who was actually a bit upset about my being frank on the subject of believing that redheads had, o.k., let’s use the term: spunk.
..
I’ve said it before and I’ll write it again, two red-headed males come to mind. One adult, when I was refereeing a soccer game and one boy, who was in my soccer team, at one of the schools.
Both had that fire that made the chances of scoring goals.
..
For a long time I spent much of my (teenage) years, in Bob Potter’s Dance studio.
The red-headed girls who came along, made me smile. Were fun. Had spirit.
(And are in my photos and paintings.)
..
It was just inevitable that I should join this group!

(By the way, the girl, above, was never in my class. Just thought she’d make a great photo. Remember hoola-hoops?)
..
On the coach-tour of U.K. and Ireland, I was briefly in love with the tour-guide who came on board in Edinburgh.
Luckily I had a seat just behind the driver.
It didn’t last!

(At least I quickly snapped her picture. It seemed funny to have come via Ireland and then have a red-headed tour-guide come aboard, when we were in Scotland!)

Artist's Description

For about twenty minutes, in July, 1997, I was like Uncle Scrooge McDuck, swimming in his gold coins, when I walked through a main street of Dublin, surrounded by I guess, 80 percent, redheads!!
