Verlie Boyd, Beauty Queen

Verlie Circa 1965
Verlie, 18 Years old
Tamera, 2 Years old

My Grandmother, Verlie Maude (Brookes) Boyd, opened her Beauty Shop in 1950. Died in 1984 and had been retired for just a few years. (1908-1984) I handed her pincurls and rollers on weekends over the years (as a child) and actually learned how to cut hair by watching her. I still cut my husbands hair to this day. I cut my son's hair, (21 and 23), until they were in their teens.
My grandmother would put cold cream on her face every evening before bed as a beauty ritual of sorts and I used to watch her in the mirror thinking she was so old and so beautiful and I loved her wrinkles (I think she was about 50 then~~OMG! Hah) I am 53. What I learned from that though, was that self care and appreciating yourself as a woman was not only good for You but for all those around you.   -Tamera Boyd Hays

Perks in the mail!

Today I mailed the  perks to 2 contributors.  I had so much fun creating the note-cards and burning the CD with music I hope they will enjoy (original!).  I so enjoyed the process of saying thank you and giving something in return for their generous donation.  All contributions are generous no matter how great or small or if they are about supporting me with energy and love... they all have great value and are part of the journey.

Tomorrow I will be going through more footage from the trip and making notes of which ones might work for the documentary.  Can't wait for NY and the ladies there!! Dawling, they are going to be fabulous!!!

The Godfather

My father's name is SAVINO CAVALLO
Born:  March 15, 1918 in Dominican Republic
He migrated to USA and lived in USA for 25 years then returning to his country of origin. 
He's 92 right now, retired, widowed.  He's outlived all of his family (they were 11 siblings).  He's overcome 2 cancers and is still moving along, taking care of his 3 dogs and has his occasional drinks.  He still travels to Dom Rep on important occasions. My father's a gentle soul and loved by all who know him.
