Hairdryers, Even a bald man can use one!

Little known facts:

. The words 'racecar,' 'kayak' and 'level' are the same whether they are read
left to right or right to left (palindromes). 
There are more chickens than people in the world. 
There are only four words in the English language which end in "dous":
tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.

Okay now my thought (!) for today, Hairdryers!

                                      (My style dryer)

I am bald and have a hair dryer.  But only to defrost the refrigerator.  Some of you have never defrosted a refrigerator.  Self-defrosting has been around for many years.  However this RV refer needs defrosting every two weeks. That is my job. I use a 50cent yard sale dryer for  the purpose. 

(This is Johnny (center) Candy (his daughter (L)) and Sherry (R) Johnny and Sherry have that natural wavy hair)

Sherry on the other hand requires a hairdryer.  She has beautiful naturally wavy hair she inherited from her dad.  She now keeps her hair short. She shampoos here hair and blows it dry. VOILA it is beautiful and done. BUT the hair dryer MUST have a comb.

                                 (Wiley Harris Sherry's dad)

The style is no longer popular and hard to find.  She has a collection of these under the bed in our motor home.  Most bought at yard sales. THE PROBLEM arises when the comb portion starts losing teeth. SELDOM does the comb portion interchange with the hundreds of designs over the years.  So today she has 2 left. I guess I had better get busy and find her a  brand new one on Amazon if I can. I am off, and will report back soon.

OK I found one and at the same time ordered some tent stakes.  She is on FB for a few minutes then goes to her games. Sherry enjoys games. She plays a word game (Hanging with Friends) with Jack Jr.  She likes several solitary games and also likes ‘hearts’ which is above my pay grade.  I sit across from her and blog, participate in a Forum, play Freecell, Spider Solitary’  and my favorite game ‘Amazon’.  Sherry tolerates my online ordering as long as I use one designated credit card.  She will know about the hair dryer when she reads this blog.

Since we do not have a place to receive shipments here in the valley, I chose the 5 day shipping and got $1 credit. (package will go to our NC home) So I have bought me another western to read on my Kindle-Fire.

Odd question, do you remember the first TV program you ever watched?  Mine was Howdy Doody at the local Albemarle Fire Department. The Firemen had a TV and let us kids come in for 30 mins to watch!

I dont use a hairdryer hardly anymore. I let my hair air dry after I wash it at night. Then I use a straightning or curling iron in the mornings depending on the mood im in. Haha. Sometimes a hat does wonders!
I like to play free cell and spider solitaire also. I just hate when someone asks how to play free cell as Its hard for me to explain. Im ok at it.
I have seen hair drying brushes before. They are pretty neat.

I've probably purchased dryers-with-combs, but haven't the knack to make them work! (lol)

Yes, so many of my FB friends are into on-line gaming. Can't wait to 'get retired' and discover what these are all about.

PS - The earliest TV shows I recall watching were Lassie and My Friend Flicka.

I remember watching Captain Kangaroo as my first show on TV :) Glad you were able to find a dryer for Sherry. Its hard when things aren't made any more and its a favorite of yours. Its amazing all that can be found through Amazon, isn't it?

As you know I think Sherry has the prettiest hair. Now I know her secret. I watched Kukla, Fran, And Ollie and Red River Dave a singer from San Antonio. TV wasn't on all the time like it is now.

I do remember defrosting a refrigerator freezer. When first married they didn't make ones that had automatic defrost so when we began camping I was already familiar with defrosting the fridge there. I am quite spoiled now and never have to defrost one, sadly my camping days are over. I usually use a hair dryer on my hair and do like the idea of one with a comb. I'll have to check that one out. You always have some good ideas to share and I love the trivia you are posting too.

I also have a hair dryer I never use but Bill has used it to defrost his tractor once and way back when, he'd use one to defrost his truck lock after running the truck through the car wash in cold weather. lol
I'm sure Sherry will love her new comb dryer.
Also love the trike and that's my speed.
love n''s gorgeous up north lately
