I have been known to say blunders like these, oh well! Don't laugh!

You always make me laugh out loud-and so early in the morning....all alone...in front of a screen...the family questions my sanity.
By the way, my hair looks very much like yours in that photo. Were we separated at birth? You got the pretty genes though. Since I sleep on a Japanese buckwheat pillow the hair kind of plastered to the back of my head.When I grow up and become rich and famous, I will have a personal hairdresser...sigh

I wonder if buckwheat pillow does less damage than my pillows on the sofa where I have a tendency to fall down and fall asleep ;) must look into that.

And ... if I looked good in Bald, i would shave my head for the ease of it all ;) xoxox Dee!
