    Hi Brenda, I just sent you an email and then I came over here to find your comment! Yes, I had a couple of big hair “snips” and a new color recently. I need to get a photo sans the “squint” though. Better luck next time LOL. So glad you enjoyed this post!

    Happy Weekend, G

    Hi Cynthia, One of the things I like most about haiku; the “economical” use of words. I like that!

    Happy Week, G 🙂
