Looks like she's on the phone, J.  Perhaps hasn't gotten into texting yet!  And some of the hair might have been donated by a lot of little critters who aren't identified.  smiley

She is on hold with her hairdresser!
Laughing out loud many times at this comment. This is my great grandmother.
Are you sure it's her hair?  It looks as if it might be a long coat.
That's definitely hair. Hair that long wasn't all that uncommon back then. It was considered unwomanly for a woman to cut her hair.

When you can wrap yourself up nice and cosy in your own hair then you have a problem. Rapunzel can help her though.
