Oh despair – I am losing my hair – EVERYWHERE!

Sending my donation of hair to Pantene Great Lengths today — I wrote a nice letter thanking them for their great work in making a difference in the lives of child cancer survivors.  It is a great feeling knowing that my hair is going to them and their great work at Pantene.  πŸ™‚
Thought I would post a little hair poem today because I am still experiencing hair coming from my head, so much I hate to even wash it in the shower.  πŸ™  Oh well.  On a high side the wig is in!   Just the blonde one, the dark brown was sent in the wrong color, so we may have to wait to get that one at a different time.  Headed to Pink Petal on Friday for the fitting and I promised Jeff & Judy a fashion show with all the other wigs so you all can see me in all the different style and vote (?) for your favorite!  πŸ™‚  That should be fun.  


I’m losing my hair… 

Do I really care?

Oh yes! Despair!

My hair is falling out 


Do I dare

Shave off my hair?

It is a scare

But to be fair

I will share

My hair

And then to clear the air

shave this hair

A wig I will wear

And the people will stop & stare

At a “new me”  πŸ™‚

Hahaha  — Look out Dr. Seuss!  Ok so that last line didn’t rhyme, but I thought I did a pretty good job eh?  My girls that I coached skiing are really great about putting together poems.  We enter our little ditties each year on Valentine’s Day and win fudge from a local craft shop.  When I was a child I used to always write poetry.  Mom always made me feel so talented when I would come up something — probably why I love to write today! 
Thanks for stopping by — please leave a note and stay tuned as Friday should be entertaining!

Looking around I found this from George Carlin.  Pretty funny.  They also had it on You Tube.  πŸ™‚  Check it out.  Hilarious.  
Funny he continued to have a pony tail until his death of heart failure in 2008.  A very very funny man.

Hair PoemHair Poem by George Carlin

I’m aware some stare at my hair.
In fact, to be fair,
Some really despair of my hair.
But I don’t care,
Cause they’re not aware,
Nor are they devonaire.
In fact, they’re just square.

They see hair down to there,
Say, “Beware” and go off on a tear!
I say, “No fair!”
A head that’s bare is really nowhere.
So be like a bear, be fair with your hair!
Show it you care.
Wear it to there.
Or to there.
Or to there, if you dare!

My wife bought some hair at a fair, to use as a spare.
Did I care?
Au contraire!
Spare hair is fair!
In fact, hair can be rare.
Fred Astair got no hair,
Nor does a chair,
Nor nor a chocolate eclair,
And where is the hair on a pear?
Nowhere, mon frere!

So now that I’ve shared this affair of the hair,
I’m going to repair to my lair and use Nair, do you care?
