    This is a bit off the wall, but there was some talk tonight about body hair as a sensory tool in investigations. James and one guest laughed a bit about their body hair standing on end and making them more aware of what was going on around them. James is downright furry and that can be blamed on me and my maternal line. Both the women and the men bear a definite resemblance to werewolves and their hair is black as coal, which makes it more pronounced. Thank you so much, Grandpa!
    On the other hand, we get a big slug of Cherokee blood, with my great grandmother being full blood and mean as a snake, too!
    But, here the anecdote that I can to tell. Many years ago, (but still mid 20th century) the US Army got the bright idea of recruiting Apache Indians to serve as trackers and scouts. They tested the men and they did the job magnificently. They were signed up and, of course, the first thing they did in Basic was to give the men the standard haircut. No big deal, right? WRONG! The men had lost their ability to track and couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag. Took a bit but they came to the conclussion that when their hair was cut, the men had lost their most powerful tracking tool. Hair gives a real sensitivity to your surroundings. If you are tracking by smell, long hair will grab the odor and focus it on your facial area. Heat, cold, humidity, electromagnetic waves, you name it, hair picks it up and focuses it.
    Likewise, for a Native American at least, hair can be a reflection of your health and I can testafiy to it. I kept my hair above shoulder lengths for years, with my health worsening. A voice in the back of my head kept insisting that if I grow it out, I will find my health again. Well, I seem to be regaining it, though rather slowly. I was put in a wheelchair early this year and got out of it in the matter of possibly 2 weeks this October. That’s approximately when my hair reached the bottom of my shoulder blades. I will NOT wear my hair short again.
    Thanks for another wonderful show! I’d love to go with you sometime on one of your lesser trips. Let’s see if I’m still sensitive as I used to be.
