In the middle of Shushan, N.Y. a beautiful tiny village a few miles from the farm, Liz Osterhaudt holds forth in her beauty salon, which you might expect to see in Brooklyn or New Jersey rather than in Washington County. Liz is a wild thing, a nuclear personality and Maria and I love to go and see her. She is the haircutter to the stars, even if there are very few stars around here. Maria and I go to see Liz once a month or so and today we brought Liz. Red was happy to jump up in the barber chair for a cuddle. Another girlfriend for the Big Red Dog.
Celebration tonight. I got my copy of "Dancing Dogs" and the former girlfriend is taking me out to the Dorset Inn in Vt. to celebrate. Swanky.
