Now I know why I am bald!

My Dr. Appointment for the ‘skin cancer’ is today. I had all this paper work to fill out. They ask your health history, and medicines one is taking. I am taking no medicines. I usually get the question, ‘Are you sure you haven’t forgotten some medications?’  They are just not used to that with an 80 year old bald headed dude. But I am really in pretty good health. (BTW I dropped another pound) I saw 152 on the scales this AM.  I was 137 when we were married. BUT She says she doesn’t want me back to 137. But I would like to bounce around 148-150.

Bad news in church last Sunday morn. In the church vestibule a man older than I mentioned my bald head. He has a full head of hair. I said, “Yes and that isn’t really fair you know.”

“Jack, I was bald until last year.”
“Really?” me.
“Yeah last year St. Peter approached God about a problem on earth. Saying, ‘Sir, we have a problem on earth. Many GOOD men are going bald, can we fix that?”

“Good men you say?”
St. Peter, “Yes sir, some very good men.”
“God thought a minute, then said, ‘in my name, let all GOOD men on earth have a full head of hair, no matter their age’,” AND IT WAS SO!

“That should answer your question of why you are still bald and I have hair,” my friend (?) said.  LOL

You shouldn’t get mad at church, but you can plan on getting even.  HA!

Wise guy huh? And I always thought bald heads were solar panels for youthful energy.

Good luck at getting even.

I like men with bald heads.

Dwayne Johnson? Vin Diesel? Bruce Willis? Yul Brynner? they are so hot.


bald men are definitely cool.

I agree ... bald is beautiful! Congrats on the weight loss! I'm starting again today cutting carbs -- that usually works and I feel more energetic as a result.

Wasn't it Telly Salvalas, the actor, who said "bald was beautiful?" Great job on another pound gone!

I tell you, I'm sure the doctors are surprised with your good healthy. I've typed a list of over 20 medicines and the person is in their 50's.

There are a lot of jokes about balk heads for sure. But I agree, they are beautiful. I couldn't say any difference because several of my sons are already bald and they can't help but be beautiful in this mom's eyes! Like you I don't take any medicines either. I do take a daily vitamin and the occasion aspirin, but they are not prescriptions so I'm thankful for that. I remember my dad taking almost 20 pills every day. We are blessed.

Love and hugs from a sunny Ohio this morning!

Two of our sons are bald and beautiful, like yourself. It's hereditary. My twin brother and I have the same receding hairline. I don't think it's too funny tho:( I have a feeling mr.jokester in church is going to be hearing 'one' in return. It's a gorgeous 42 degrees and sunny around here today. We'll take it!
love n' hugs from up north where the fresh bread baking smells mighty fine.
Ya 'unt some?
