Teapot Tuesday 78

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair.  Would you believe I used to have hair that went below my waist?  Yes, I was a child of the 70's.  Straight, dark brown hair parted down the middle.  Well, I still have the center part, but it's no longer brown and it's very short.  And.... I played the role of Rapunzel in our Junior Carnival in High School.  

So what's that got to do with Teapot Tuesday?  Well, take a look at Rapunzel's castle............

Cindy has woven a great story about Rapunzel and her hair, and her beau, and her beauty salon, and the knights, and the neighbors, and the gossip........... oh my, I don't know how she does it..... comes up with these things I mean.  You really need to go to her glob and read the story for yourself to understand what I'm about to tell you.

This is Rapunzel's neighborhood.  She may have a moat around her castle, but the neighborhood is rather commonplace.  That is, unless you realize you are only allowed to paint your house, white, red or blue, or any combination of those colors.  It's a very patriotic neighborhood.  It's also full of very nosy observant people. 

How do I know that?  Well look at those houses.  Not one of them has curtains  and there are no trees obscuring the view.  And that's not just because they like to watch the fireworks every other weekend.  They like to keep an eye on each other.   They like to keep the terrorists or would be terrorists out of their neighborhood.  We should all hope to live in such a safe and caring neighborhood.

So Rapunzel, you are very lucky and shouldn't have any problem getting your hair salon up and running!
