The Bald Headed Blues

Well, right on schedule, I am starting to lose my hair.   A few months ago when I was told this was an almost certain consequence of the chemotherapy, I was pretty depressed.  Then a friend passed along this video by the Uppity Blues Women and it lifted my sprits immediately and made the inevitable more palatable. I just hope that when I put on my turban/headscarf and start walking the streets, I won't get in trouble for wearing a "voile" (veil). :-)

I watched the video again this morning and I must say I think these ladies have the right attitude.  Damn right, I'm still here...

It may sound weird, but I always wanted to shave my head and I love hats, the women at the clinic were so beautiful with their scarfs and hats. Like in the 50's. You are going to be beautiful and then your hair are going to be so soft!

@Shirl and Rowan, it is a great song, isn't it? I heard the group broke up which is a darn shame.

@Celia, Thanks so much for stopping by and for the comment. You're right - those scarfs and turbans are just lovely. I decided to be proactive and purchased a few from this on-line shop. They have some lovely stuff Very stylish :-) http://www.bellepourguerir.com/

@Christophe, thanks. I was able to try one on yesterday evening after the elder Frenchling shaved my head. Yep, the hair was coming out in handfuls so I said "to hell with this" and just took it all off. :-)

Curly would be cool too...
