My Grandmother, A Woman Ahead Of Her Time?

                                                 
Mary Cole Bryant Horton


My grandma when I was a kid, was big into her blonde wigs. As a child, originally my brother and I didn't realize that she wore wigs and just thought our grandmother had blonde hair. I think my brother found out when he returned home from school one day after an argument with another child. My brother kept trying to explain to his classmate that his grandmother had blonde hair and they just didn't believe him. That's when I think my mom explained things to him. Well anyway, the reason why I bring this up is that my mother and I can't help but smile every time we look at my daughter.


Did my grandmother know something we didn't know? Or perhaps she gave some input to the man upstairs on what color hair my daughter should have. Either way, what I would give to have a chance to go out with my grandmother to Red Lobster (her favorite restaurant) and introduce her to her great-granddaughter.
