Hair today ...

Since Steve started receiving the chemotherapy Carboplatin,
his hair has been thinning.

With Aunt Ami in town, it was time for a hair cut.

He wanted to return to his edgier youth.

He didn't mean to alarm sweet neighbor Drew.

He wanted to make Katie happy.

He settled on the bald-is-beautiful look,
fulfilling a long-time dream to shave his head.

(Before the big event, Steve told Cooper and Katie
that Ami would be shaving his head.
Cooper's response warmed my heart:
"That's OK. It's what's on the inside, not the outside, that counts.")

I can dig it. But why do I have the overwhelming urge to join Players Club?

Personally, I liked the edgier youth style, but Steve is beautiful bald, too. I hope the headaches disappear as quickly as the hair did.

Hugs, Linda S

Sweet comment from Cooper, as usual. But Steve carries "bald" quite well, I think! Rock on.
