On Monday, June 29, ten community members, including Ezra Meeker, and a rubber chicken will submit to makeovers at Salon Miro’ in Tacoma’s Hotel Murano. This is in line with the idea that it’s never too late to take a fresh look at life – and let life take a fresh look at you. All ten (eleven counting the chicken) will descend upon the salon at 1:00 Monday afternoon, and there should be loads of great photos possible. This is for an upcoming edition of Dorothy Wilhelm’s Comcast TV show – “Never Too Late”.
There’s a semi serious purpose behind this. The fact is, in these stressful times, we tend to cling to our old looks and we get very set in our ways, and some folks are still wearing their high school hair style. That can keep you from moving ahead. Why, Ezra Meeker hasn’t changed his
hair in 150 years – you know how old guys let the hair grow down the back of their neck – ugh.
Ezra is actually portrayed by historian/actor Ray Egan of Lakewood who does a one man historical show about Ezra Meeker all over the country. The rubber chicken is the side kick of international humorist Patt Schwab (rubberchickenofthemonthclub.wordpress.com) who found, she says, that that the chickens wanted to distance themselves from the stress of the banquet table. Scwab’s chickens have been featured in more than a thousand speeches in six countries.
Chickens, Meeker, and over fifty crowd will receive the same ministrations courtesy of Salon Miro co-owner Will Morales, and his fearless stylists. The show will air in late summer.
