Counting hairs

GC1_quarter.jpg G_Dad_quarter.jpg

Jesus spoke of God's knowledge of every hair on our head. Well, my count started going down very quickly this week as a result of my chemotherapy. Within a few days, it was quite patchy. So I decided to cut it off. I call it my Morphius look. Here's me with Christine and with Dad.

But I wasn't the only one...

Saturday, my father-in-law, Carl, drove me to the barber for my haircut to remember. He was in town to drive me and Christine down to Houston for the week at MD Anderson. To my surprise. as an act I interpret as a gesture of solidarity, Carl got the same haircut. Here we are the next day...

Having hair is highly overrated. Think of all the added benefits:
No more worries over bed head, fewer trips to the barber (think of all the money you will be saving), the shampoo bottle will last longer, and people will definitely think you had a part in the Matrix.
You two look great!

God bless you both for the levity! I have to admit I laughed out loud. Greg... Morphius does come to mind... you need the sunglasses to clinch it. Love, Fran

Scripture does say that God can count the hairs on our heads. You fall into the Thomistic category of "assisting Grace" - it makes it bit easier for God when the number is zero!

Well Greg consider the extra time you will now have in the morning no more bed-head, no more hat-head, and just think of the savings on shampoo. Keep in good cheer, We are still praying.

Tell Carl he looks 10 years younger, should have done it a long time ago. HA!
What will you do with all the extra time, now that you don't have to do hair?

G. Gordon Liddy would be proud! He says a single blade with no pivot in the head is best. Cheapest is best again!
Gettin' there without chemo or blade fast enough!
