Carole Taylor, Art Phillips and the three Russians
Thursday, February 23, 2006

This week when talking to my friend John Lekich he suggested I blog about Carole Taylor considering that she had just introduced the new Provincial budget. This would be a good excuse to post one of your many lovely portraits of that lovely woman.

When Kerrisdale hair wizard Richard Jeha was cutting my hair yesterday I had a Bill Richardson/Bunny Watson moment. I spied Jeha's three Russians conspiring in a corner. With beautifully shaped and deft hands the poker-faced Sergei cut off Paulina's folksingerish long hair while Svetlana watched the master who had represented Belaurus in recent World Cup Hairstyling Championships. In about 15 minutes Paulina emerged as a Russian femme fatale to die for.

For years I had faithfully followed a personal hairdresser who would change venues once a month. There were days when she would tell me, "I am not in the mood for cutting your hair." So I searched for a less stressful replacement. About ten yeas ago my wife Rosemary suggested, "Try Richard, if he is good enough for Art Phillips, the ex-Vancouver mayor, he should be good enough for you."

While pleasing John by posting a picture here of our Finance Minister I can satisfy my own train of thought by showing her with her husband Art Phillips. Richard Jeha and his staff (including the three Russians)are not only good enough for Art Phillips but for Canada, too! They have swept Canadian hairstyling competitions with many firsts in the last few years and they are poised to represent us in world competition.
