Back home to relax at the patio, read the local newspaper to catch all the latest happenings, back to the salon a short while later.....As Sparky sat waiting for her turn, she started to notice that there was NOBODY in the salon under the age of 60--no beauticians that appeared any younger, no young customers waiting, and she started to feel a little nervous about getting a current stylish short haircut. Finally, it was her turn....Out totters a very elderly lady, she's the beautician!..."Ma-am? I'm ready for you...." Uh-h-h-h....OK...we'll give this a try.....She pulled out her supplies for a razor cut, with VERY SHAKY HANDS...Uh-oh! This is NOT good....She's going to razor cut my hair with a mild palsy? Now Sparky was REALLY nervous!
She says, "So...you want a PIXIE cut?" PIXIE cut? When was the last time you heard a hair style referred to as a "pixie" cut? I think it was back in the fifties and sixties! " Uh, yes, that would be fine..."
Half an hour later, I had no bangs left, and a bad case of nerves, but it was a haircut that would suffice. As Eldy says,"I'll just say what you always say to me when you cut MY hair--Don't worry, it will grow out!" Sigh! Thought I'd try a black and white photo today--heck, it's all gray anyway!....Here's me with the too short haircut!

Tomorrow we'll be decorating our home on wheels and our site to look like Christmas is coming! Not many in the park have decorated, it's early yet. There are quite a few empty spaces here at the park. I'm sure it will get fuller as time goes on.....We'll see you tomorrow at our site.....Eldy's wondering when Sparky is gonna want to go alligator hunting...Soon, dear! Soon!
