I received this as an e-mail from a friend and I think it is worth sharing with all of you. A ?young? person asked the question ?How do you feel about being old?? She answered, ?Old age, I decided, is a gift. ?I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be. Oh, not my body. I sometime despair over my body, the wrinkles, the baggy eyes, and the sagging rear end. And often I am taken aback by that old person that lives in my mirror (who looks like my mother!

It's a sight that is invariably familiar to anyone who has ever received a hair cut. A client no sooner leaves the stylist's chair than an assistant wielding a broom arrives on the scene to sweep up the clippings. However, if La Cañada Flintridge resident Linda Ok can make it happen, she and 59 of her fellow teen philanthropists will find a salon not only willing to cut their hair ? each girl has committed to saying goodbye to a good 10 inches of growth ? but also willing to donate those clippings to Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that provides wigs for children with permanent hair loss.

A recent end piece in the Sunday New York Times Magazine (yes, I still read that because it is a fascinating conglomeration of information each and every week though I have several times canceled my subscription to that and the L.A. Times because of idiotic positions they have taken on some political matters), ahem. Anyway, the very funny end-piece by Sara Davidson, in which she bemoans the apathy regarding her continued worth by her grown kids and how her decision to take up downhill ski racing all dove-tailed into a neat little, uh, uh, oh bother!

Letters to the Editor Don't Mask Memorial Day By introduction, I have been a resident of LCF for 36 years and am a decorated Vietnam veteran. Again this year, I was disturbed to see the "Fiesta Days" proclamation masking the true meaning of Memorial Day. Several years ago I voiced my concerns to LCF Chamber of Commerce members and made progress in hopes of phasing out these words (fiesta days). Taken from Webster's, the word fiesta is specifically "a saint's day celebrated in Spain and Latin America with processions and dances."

When I first saw them, they struck me as an odd couple. They were sitting and laughing over the table, radiating a sense of fun and excitement that made me feel like a 10-year-old who wanted to go out and play. From that day in late October, they would become my best friends in Spain, bringing me out of my bubble of solitude and delightedly showing me the ropes to a new social life. Alejandro, nicknamed "Lama," is intense, full of energy and life. He is always the first at the table, whether it be la comida, the dancing platform or table soccer.

"Hair," the American tribal love rock musical, will be performed at the Glendale Community College Auditorium Mainstage Theatre for two more weekends. Memorabilia from the original Broadway production by Michael Butler will be on display in the auditorium lobby. The items include pictures, love beads and programs on loan from Harvey Jordan, who learned of the college's production of "HAIR" and offered to let the theater's arts department display them. He obtained the items at an estate sale.

"HAIR," the American tribal love rock musical, will be performed at Glendale Community College Auditorium Mainstage Theatre for three weekends, opening March 10. Theatre professor Ken Gray will direct. Musical direction is by Dan Belzer and choreography is by Melissa Randel. "HAIR" was written by Gerome Ragni and James Rado with music written by Galt MacDermot. In a break from the traditional Broadway musicals of the time, the creators attempted to bring to the stage the excitement of 1960s New York's East Village, with long-haired, peace-loving hippies and rock music.

Lauren Oakes Summer Season Recalled Connor and Faye were both doing summer ball, soft for her, hard for him. So I spent a lot of time sitting in a portable sling chair trying to figure out how all the other parents always know when it's a bad call, what the score is, and what just happened. Did they all take baseball 101 in school? Where was I? Some of them even have these little notepads with tiny baseball diamonds printed on them and columns for runs, hits and errors.

Warning: This article may not be appropriate for children under 9. Daniel Barber sits in a makeup chair in the La Cañada High School drama department green room. His nails are in bad need of a good clipping, his hair is every mother's worst nightmare and his teeth are enough to give the Tooth Fairy a heart attack. Barber has become Bat Boy, the main character in La Cañada High School's spring musical "Bat Boy: the Musical." So how exactly do you go about making a bat boy?
