At first glance I may look bald to you, and to be honest I thought I was bald. But as it turns out, I was wrong. I’m not bald after all, I have snowbird hair. I haven’t lost any of my hair, it just migrated south several winters ago and never came back.
Seriously, I woke up one day and my eyebrows had taken on a life of their own and looked like two huge caterpillars on crack, and what’s with the hair in my ears? It’s like I’m wearing ear muffs, but it’s all me. And I swear, last week something was tickling my nose and it was a hair reaching around from somewhere back on my left shoulder to say hello! I’m beginning to think Miss Terry is sprinkling my bath towel with Miracle-Gro!
I worked on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal most of the day yesterday, and then we went to Famous Dave’s with Charles and Chris Yust to meet our friends Dennis and Carol Hill for dinner. Nice shirt, Dennis!

The food was good and the conversation around the table was even better. We had not seen Dennis and Carol in quite a while, so it was nice to get together with them again.
