Did you know there was a time in America when you could take your kid to the post office and mail him? Lionel Milton was certain it's true, and sure enough it is.

Marie Lovejoy just got back in town from braiding hair in Minneapolis. She also braids hair at Renaissance Festivals and fairs across the country, which she did for a decade before settling down in New Orleans a few years ago.
