Hello, Bill!
Nice portrait, Moira.

You got in early with your appointments! I'm going to give my poor hairdresser a week or more to get over the first wave before I even ring.

Mine was cut recently and the barber said, "some interesting missing chunks here.."
I replied, "yes, my wife had a go at trimming it a bit."
He replied, "you are not the first as many had similar."

Why is it expected that males should have short hair? do whatever you find comfortable within the laws of the land, which don't lay down male hair length. Have a look at images of some of the most prominent artists of any genre, and a lot will not be in the, "be a good boy, get your hair cut" category, just P*** off and leave me alone, if it doesn't suit you, too bad, get used to it, I am me, not you, I don't tell you to grow your hair long, any way rant over, Personally I find the image of Bill right out there, looks like a rebel, good on you Bill.

Well... We liked the longer hair for a while; I can tie mine in a ponytail, Bill hasn't quite reached that point yet. But the novelty is definitely wearing off.
A former student of Bill's who now has her own hairdressing business comes to the house. Many years ago, on a school exchange trip to France, I carried her suitcase back as well as my own, after she hurt her arm while skating. Have you any idea how much luggage a 13-year-old needs for a week away? Scary to think about the fact that she's now turned 50...
Bill was photographing magnolia buds at the time, that picture will appear in his pf some time.

Moment of silence for the men who lived in the 70s, they have sacrificed so that we didnít have to!

Leo_nid's post links to toffs, not rebels, far to much grooming in those images, Bills image is not in that category, good on you.

I can sympathize as I had not had a haircut for 5 months (the deep lockdown period over here), was happy to see mine go too... and as a bonus, less use of shampoo and quicker dry too.

I don't really care how mine looks, so long as it doesn't tickle my ears.

All about how it feels, for me.

A very hairy looking Bill! 😁 Mine's booked for a cut tomorrow, too, but at least being long it's been keeping my ears warm in this cold weather! 👍

I do my own, but since I don't have much to start with - unlike Goldilocks here - I don't have a problem. Wish I had more hair, though......Wink

And i suppose I might as well give you a UA for your trouble. Smile

Maybe he should leave it, he looks rather interesting this way. A man of character and stories. I'll decide tomorrow if you show us.

As promised I've now given it further thought. (See above) You are the cultural doyen of 'Private Eye' and your name is E J Thribb, but sadly you are no longer aged 17 and a half.

Get yer 'air cut!

Yours, compassionately, Sgt Major 'Shorty' Backandsides.

PS You 'horrible little man - you might break yer mother's 'eart but yer won't break mine.

PPS Your long suffering official photographer, Mrs Woollybobblehat, is duly awarded this shiny, retrospective gong by way of consolation.
