'AWWWWW NUTS' I CAN SEE THE TOP OF MY HEAD THROUGH MY HAIR!!!!

 A FEW SUN SPLASHES THIS MORNING
I have been noticing the 'oh so subtle' changes in my hairline for the last few years.  A small off-center bald spot developed first maybe as far back as a decade ago but luckily it stayed there and didn't expand for a long time. (some would say that off-center bald spot matches my off-center personality) Occasionally I would get a mirror out and twist myself around between a couple more mirrors to check on its progress.  With each observance, I uttered an unprintable threat to that bald spot towards the back of my head which I am sure kept it from spreading.  Simply out of fear of course.  But then, I noticed something else beginning to happen.  Running my brush through my hair each morning was beginning to become just way too easy.  I checked the brush to see if half the bristles were missing.  No luck.  I've always had a full head of slightly curly hair over the years and it was often a major feat to drag anything through it.  Like a thick jungle, the top of my skull lived in darkness except for an occasional sliver of sunshine on a really windy day.  But then, it began to happen even more.  My forehead started to expand and looked much bigger than it had previously.  How was that possible.  I thought my head had stopped growing when I was a teenager or something.  Could it be my brains were expanding with all the reading I have been doing lately?  Well, I guess it's possible but highly improbable.  Of course, I had heard of receding hairlines but come on.....not me!!  And then, about a month ago I saw something I had never seen before.  There it was one morning after a shower, a thin line running from front to back right across the top of my head, and oh horror of horrors, that line was the same color as my skin.  And yes, I held my bare arm up there alongside that line to check the color, and yes it was me alright.  Of course, I am in denial now.  How can this be happening to me!!  The guy with the full head of hair for all those years.  The words 'comb over' came to mind and has now taken on a personal meaning for me.  I might even take to wearing a hat around the house.  Well, it's either that or I am going to have to remove a few mirrors.  I did briefly contemplate trying some sheep manure to promote hair growth but had to give that idea up.  Well, with the price of sheep manure these days eh.  So, I guess my future is fast upon me at last as I must now begin to contemplate moving forward not only as a Senior but a balding Senior.  Never thought I would see the day, but here it is, staring right back at me every morning from that damn bathroom mirror.  I think the removal of that mirror just might be my ticket to not having to worry about all this anymore.  Wish me luck.....and don't think somewhere down the road about calling me 'Baldy either':((

  3. Removing the bathroom mirror also helps with weight problems, I've found.

  4. Trust me, it's worse when you're a girl. Or were a girl, at one time, with lots of thick luxuriant hair. Now that I'm white headed, I have recently thought of dying my hair pink so it will blend in with the scalp that's getting more and more visible on top. Think that would work???

    I have less sympathy for guys. Lots of guys have been balding early on, and some even shave their heads. I've known very very attractive men who didn't have a full crop on top. The brains that may be pushing your hair our currently are more important.

  7. Oh so familiar. I'm younger than you with a lot more skin on top. That's why I wear those hippy handkerchief bandanas now๐Ÿ˜ At least I can grow a beard. Loved the photo of the house and barn on the hill.

  9. Walter was a it younger than you when he started losing his hair. I remember one time when he was in his early 60’s. I happened to be with him at the barber’s. I said jokingly that he should get a discount, since he had so little hair. She laughed and said, “No, m’am. We charge a ‘finder’s fee!’”

    I have been doing his haircuts for years now. Every time the ring of hair is smaller. Much more skin than hair.
    And, yes, many younger men are shaving their heads. Maybe they are avoiding that transition period. Like the women I know who have never turned gray. They started with the bleach or dye early enough that nobody would notice.
    Every time I see photos of beautiful Canada geese, I remember the fellow camper by Lake Superior in MN who wanted to know what all that green stuff was on the roads!๐Ÿ˜‚
