Welcome to Fogeyville

Population: Me

two hairs from my headThe hairs in the picture to the left are both from my head. If you are clever, and not half-blind, you will note that one is – dare I say it? – much grayer than the other.

I actually think gray hair looks quite elegant. And when you’re tired of looking elegant, it shows off bright green dye better than brown hair does. So, I consider this one hair down, 99,999 to go.

    I agree with you… I don’t dread graying at all. Middle-age spread and wrinkles, now…

    I started going gray when I was about your age (hang on a second, excuse me: YOU KIDS GET OFFA MY LAWN! ok, sorry, back now.) The most annoying part is that the texture changes and it gets all coarse. I clean copper-bottom pots with my scalp now.
