  • The sunscreen smears all over my face really add to these photos, eh?

  • Dear Andrea, glad to see that the hair is growing thick and fast. As it is, you don’t allow it to grow too much 🙂

    That poem is almost as glorious as Andrea’s hair!! Are you the author, Steve?

  • Thank you, Sriram, Steve & Janice. I think I’m pretty lucky that that peewee-herman pointy-topped hair-do seems to be all the rage these days. Looks like I’m going to fit right in!

    Hey, Janice. I wish. rnIt’s from the Broadway musical, “HAIR”.

  • Gratuitous hair comment: :-)nOver about a five year period a lot of my long, straight hair fell out. I didn’t realize I’d lost most of it until my life gradually turned around and new hair started growing in curly – I had long, thin hair on the outside and short curls on the inside. Now it’s all one length, but I still have straight hair growing out of the top of my head (the traditional male pattern baldness area) and tight waves on the sides and back. Consensus is that hair loss was related to stress, and my new girly curls are courtesy of menopause. nnI decided to see the surprise girly hair frou frou as an invitation to get started on my second childhood while I’m still young enough to remember it, and started fantasizing about sewing funky princess clothes. Right about then you posted about going shopping, with a picture of your new arm warmers – ah! a sign! nnSo now you know. LOL.

  • Elizabeth, nSorry this comment somehow slipped past me and I only found it now.nI’m sorry to hear that your have had such stress and that you lost your long, straight hair but I am very glad to hear that life has turned around for you and that your new curly hair is inspiring a new era of girliness and frivolity.nnI too have been fantasizing tonnes lately about sewing funky feminine clothes (inspired by fabulously talented and gutsy reconstructors such as Helen Carter) — or at the very least purchasing some.nnI’m loving my funky arm thingies, btw. Do send me a photo the your daring new you…nnBe well,nAndreanxo
