Women and Their Hair
You guys have it simple. I rarely have seen men obsess over their hair like we women tend to do. Right now I’m contemplating changing my style. I’ll wager you that at least 50% of the female population in America is likewise thinking about what they could do differently with their hair. This Yellow Dog Democrat is not a fan of Hillary Clinton, but I bristle when people pick on her about her hairstyles changing. That’s because I can identify. And it’s usually men who are the ones doing the criticizing.
My hair is currently short but getting scraggly. I called to get a cut the other day, and I heard those awful words, “Sheila (I love it that we shared the same first name) isn’t working. We don’t know when or even if she will be back.” “What happened?” I asked, trying to keep the desperation out of my voice. “I can’t tell you,” the voice on the other end said. “Privacy issue, you know.” Holy crap! What am I going to do now? Sheila was the first person to give me a real haircut after mine grew back. She was good too, other than that time she cut my ear.
So, I guess I’ll think about what to do and let the hair grow for a while.

P.S. If anyone else notices any tech issue with the blog, would you please E-mail me? One reader had trouble with links taking him to my other blog, River City Views, and maybe I did something I didn’t intend when I put that link in the sidebar. I told y’all I’m not the most tech savvy person.
