Loud And Clear
Blog readers and social media followers from around the World made their thoughts known. The message was loud and clear.
Thank You All For Your “Loud And Clear” Message
I had no idea the concept of a comb-over would prompt such a response. And thank you for all your feedback
After I started getting so many responses in comments and on social media, I realized that Monday’s blog post was somewhat of a “fishing for compliments” post. It wasn’t meant to be…at least not consciously.
Truthfully, it was a lot of things all rolled into one. Mostly, I was tired of hearing Thaddeus tell me about my “bald spot.” Knowing that he doesn’t like my hair when it gets unruly, my idea about growing it out was more about trying to be mean to him in response.
In taking the photos, it’s clear my hair isn’t as thick and full as it used to be. But I don’t care about that. At 63 years of age, I’m grateful I have hair on my head. And that it still has some natural color in it. But in growing it out, I am trying one last time to see if I can have longer hair that doesn’t look ridiculous on me.
It’s not likely, but I just had to prove it to myself one more time.
I was able to finish a third pair of the Rose’s Fingerless Mitts in this luscious Briar Rose colorway (not sure which one).
With the weight of the remaining yarn, I should have enough to make a fourth pair in this colorway. So I’ve started that pair.
I also found a stash of the natural cream colored yarn I used in my favorite crochet beanie.
So I’ve begun another Crochet Thermal Stitch Beanie. It’s already achieved full-diameter, so it’s all mindless crochet from now on.

Did you stop aging for 10 years? I thought you were in the low to mid 50’s!
Joe, it’s your head. I’m a firm believer in “do what makes you happy, as long is doesn’t hurt anyone else.” especially with your appearance. There’s only a few ways we can change things up without drastic surgery, and hair is the most obvious. See how long you can get it, just for fun. Then cut it off when it bugs you. Or dye it bright colors. Or even (gasp) comb it over.
Hair is an accessory. Have fun with it.
(I know not everyone takes this kind of approach to hair styling. I just think we all take our selves to seriously in general, and this is a way to lighten up. )
I love that you share so much of yourself here. And invite us in. Thank you.
