Well, I’m in year 2… and a half. Although there was a major set back before Christmas when a bad haircut cost me inches! The goal is long voluptuous waves in my 20s… I’m cutting that deadline pretty tight though.

... a female barber once said that I had a finely shaped noggin. Now I see what she means Eleanor ...  cause you did a fine job of getting mine just right with your brush work that night at the Old Firehall. Thanks for this colorful visual.
