Carol Perkins: Lanny Nunn and Olivia de Havilland
Previous Column: A patient, patient
By Carol Perkins
What has happened to Metcalfe County High School graduates has always been of great interest to me. Although I have kept up with Lanny Nunn since we graduated back in the sixties, I really haven't known much about his career and where his life has led him.
A few years ago, I reached out to Lanny (Lannes William Nunn) and his sister Stephanie, who were living in Bowling Green, and Judy and I had lunch with them and visited in their home. Stephanie retired early because of health problems, but Lanny continued to work as a hairdresser, two or three days a week, spanning a career of over fifty-seven years. Lanny was younger than us, but he grew up in Muncie Court (a town kid) and was part of our lives. His father, JT Nunn of Nunn Drugstore and his mother Dorothy opened their homes to us teens.
Recently, Lanny and I talked and he sent a story I want to share that involves long-term penpals he established with Academy Award winning actress Olivia de Havilland (Gone with the Wind), whom he met while working at the Executive Inn Salon in Owensboro. She was in town to present an Award.
In Lanny's words:
When she arrived at the Saloon, we rushed to treat her like the star she was. She was about my height and had the sweetest smile. In one hand she carried a matching purse and the in the other, a book. Once I draped a cape around her, I brushed her hair and led her to the shampoo bowl.Part 2: Carol Perkins: Where are they now?
Carol's most recent book, based on a true story, The Case of the Missing Ring, is available through Amazon, both paperback and ebook. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
