Back By Popular Demand

You know, the more I think about this picture, I'd better ask my mom to confirm this. But, I think I'm recalling now that the sweet, red-bandana shirt might've been a home-made item.

Would you call that head of hair a "mushroom" cut or just a standard "bowl" cut? No need for ear muffs, that's certain.

Does anyone know why, at age 36, I now have the occasional hair(s) growing out of my ear(s)? I hate that. Perhaps I should return to the hairstyle pictured here. It would certainly hide any errant ear hairs. And, really, aren't any/all ear hairs "errant," by nature? They serve no purpose (somewhat akin to W's smirk).

My wife makes great chili. I'm having some leftover chili for lunch later.

Work sucks. At least I only have to do it for another thirty years, or so...

The hair appeared around age 35, it only gets worse.

At least mine's not all black and hard - yet.

But I truly believe the abuse you would take from the helmet-haricut would do more damage to you than having to trim your ears every once in a while.

I, too, wonder where the ear hair comes from. I woke up one day and there they were, and I swear that if I don’t trim them I would look like General Burnside of Civil War fame with in a year. If I was bald I could use them as a comb-over. Can you use that bikini wax stuff to get rid of them?

Definitely a bowl cut. And can I say just damned cute? Let us know if your mama made the shirt.

I don't have hair in my ears, but my eyebrows are going gray. Faster than the hair on my head.

Now I want chili ...

Of course it was homemade! Becky and Claudia made all our clothes (with the exception of the Tuff-skin jeans) at that age. If you want a good laugh, dig out a copy of the whole family picture on the church steps at your mom and Rob's wedding. I can remember my mom frantically finishing making my shirt about 20 minutes before we had to be there!

p.s. no ear hair yet!

Yep, just clip and go, you'd never survive that haircut twice Haahnster.

I'm curious -- what do you think (if you've heard it) of the cover of Cinammon Girl that Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs do on their Covers album?

KK: So, that's 1 vote against reliving that hairstyle.

coffeypot: Bikini wax, that's an idea!

Beth: Gray eyebrows...that'll be next, I'm sure.

Mat: Our mothers had to put their 4H training to good use.

Dale: That'a another vote against the hairstyle.

PS - I have heard the Sweet/Hoffs version of "Cinnamon Girl," and I like it. Some of the other hardcore Neil fans I interact with were less than complimentary. I don't think they minded Sweet, but some turn their noses up at Hoffs. I thought she did her part just fine.

If you can tell me why I have hair growing out of my chin-then maybe we can both be millionaires!

Just hope it doesn't start growing from your nose! That happens too(not to me)

See? A little hair in your ears and you're still spot on with your opinions (because they match mine).

Wait until they get some length. Then when the wind blows as it does in the section of Illinois, it will feel like a gnat flying around your ear.

The Missus per my request, gave me one of the best Christmas presents ever, two years back. Panasonic makes the best nose and ear trimmer, and Christmas is coming up.

Hint, hint, before the inevitable forest that comes with middle age, takes over and scares your daughter.

I was just plucing errant ear hairs from my husband's ears yesterday. He is 35 and they started this year. I can only hope that they remain errant. My FIL has ears like an ewok.

I always called those oatmeal bowl cuts. Cute picture!

(I came here from KLee's blog)

OL: I've seen that nosehair thing going on some guys. If they show up on me, I'll pluck 'em out 1-by-1 if I have to.

Dale: I'm glad to see we're agreed. Also, I like the new image. Is that a Halloween costume?

WP: That's excellent! I never think of anything good to put on my Christmas list.

ccw: Welcome! Stop by any time. "...ears like an ewok," I like that line a lot.
