Easter Hair

April 17, 2022

I woke Easter morning and did what I do each morning, I grabbed a bunch of hair to see if it was coming out yet. This morning about 10 hairs came out. This never happened before, I tried again in a different place and the same thing. I had decided before starting chemotherapy that as soon as I started to loose my hair I would take it into my own hands and have my head shaved before the drugs could do it.  My son-in-law, Matt Lloyd, has all the tools for hair cutting; he has cut my hair before although not quite as drastic as what I asked him to do today. I told him what I wanted and he agreed to do it.  Good old Matt, he did a great job with what he had to work with. You can see the picture on the left. Truly an egghead.

We had Easter dinner with Matt and Jane and the two grandkids, Charlotte age 12 and Spencer age 8 soon to be 9. Turkey with all the fixings. They all had negative Covid tests today. Glenda and I felt safe. We wore masks much of the time anyway.

For dessert, Glenda had made a cake decorated like a bunny. See picture of it in the refrigerator below.  Glenda and the grandkids had their picture taken with it.

Then Kingston (the dog) decided he wanted in on the action so Jane held him up to see the cake.

After supper the kids wanted to go out on the dirt bike and small quad and just drive around the house. Matt and Jane have a large piece of land and can drive around it easily. There is a picture of Matt with a glass of wine looking out the garage door watching the kids. Janes trophy car— a yellow Mustang — can be seen in back. She has already had it out once this spring.

  7. Sounds like you had a lovely Easter! Love the bunny cake! And a new ‘do to suit the occasion too … & just think of how much you will save in shampoo and conditioner????
    Looking great- the smile says it all!

    1. People our age remember Tellie Savales (?spelling) or Kojak from the 70s…the original bald head guy. Maybe that’s who you’re thinking about.
      And yes save a fortune on shampoo. 🙂

  8. You look like a movie star but can’t quite get the name! Everyone needs to change their hairstyle at least once every five years or so anyway!! Sounds like you enjoyed Easter celebrations. You are looking well.

  9. Well you are as handsome now as when I saw you in Trouty last. I loved it there and I have some beautiful memories from our trips. But unfortunately, I won’t be back. I love all the pictures. You and Glenda look awesome. Great looking relatives as well. Great job on the bunny cake! Too cute! My wish to you is: get better quickly.. God bless!

  10. I don’t know how I missed this. It looks like you had a wonderful Easter. Matt did a great job!
    The cake looked delicious, Kingston certainly thought so by his expression in the photo. We are thinking of you always.

  11. Pauline is right. You have Picard vibes going on. Looks like you had a nice Easter! I CANNOT BELIEVE how grown up Jane and Mathew’s kids are. They’re beautiful!
