I loved your post. I've figured out Bob's schedule but haven't compared the dates yet to find out if it's doable for me.
Yeah, I don't color my hair either. It's a part of who I am.
Had to giggle at your 'too white'. One year when my sister and her husband were stationed in Italy she had died her hair... she's a dirty blonde and was after to lighten it.
Um.... She ended up with BRONCO Orange LOL Good thing she's a Denver Bronco fan. She spent part of her two week visit state side finding a shop that could strip the color and start from scratch.
