HAIR!

[This blog post is dedicated to hair.]

I used to color my own hair, then I got it done professionally - when I wanted highlights....
I had Marti take that picture (a few years ago).
I guess I wanted to commemorate the moment....
(and the money and the time).


Here's Marti doing something to the gray roots months (years?) later ...
(Doesn't everyone take pictures at the beauty shop?)

-------


Well, now I'm coming to terms with my age, and tired of having the skunk look...

kind of like this....


So the other day Marti cut most of my color off (well, almost all)... so we had to take a picture....
Now I'm almost color free,
which means I'm gray.

It feels good.


--------
As you know I've been writing about being a twin, and then her cancer, and death, etc.
It's been good for me.

And I've looked through old pictures.
I usually can tell us apart,
but not in these pictures....
I'm glad Mother took those before-and-after pictures.

Oh, here's one of Peggy years later....
(We'd call that multi-tasking today.)

And here is her daughter years later helping her cousin (my daughter)....

And then here's my daughter years later with her husband ..


and then later....

 Someone out there is wearing her hair today.

That's a great thought.

(I guess sometimes what goes around comes around.)

nice! and i want to do that again--grow my hair out really long and then chop it off. I like the drastic change. And then why not donate it?

Maybe somebody is needing a gray wig... ;)

And Ryan doesn't let me cut his hair anymore...
