Thanksgiving Eve

(Folks, I'm having a blog entry today not because I have tons of interesting things to say, but because I can't stand the guilt any more- I've been neglecting my blog and my husbands new found fascination with an old computer game has made it crazy for me to get on my PC at home, so I rest)

Ahhhhh, a short work week, a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, sales ads and slashed down prices on merchandise- WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?

I'll tell ya. I went to two stores looking for Jello Instant Pumpkin Spice (special edition) pudding and couldn't find it, but that's not the issue. I was out and about on Thanksgiving Eve in a shopping nightmare, standing in a long line that wrapped around the frozen food section so that my knuckles turned blue. While I stood there of course I spied with my little eye all sorts of characters. But the one that stood out to me, was not one but several over 30 close to 50 years of age guys, all who had a long scraggly pony tail hanging down it's back. SEVERAL men, some balding, some whose hair had long ago been brown or black but is now dashed with a dirty gray walked by me. Some were unkempt, and the lack of personal hygiene is the very reason for the long pony tail of hair probably fastened with the rubber band off a bunch of green onions or his newspaper. One was all dressed up, with a nice fitted brown leather jacket and polished shoes and A Pony Tail. (probably a pinkie ring too, I didn't glance that way)

Is it me? Do they know that the 60's have ended and the 70's but a blur? Where is Clinton and Stacy for men? (TLC's what not to wear) I really don't want to see long hair on guys anymore. In fact, if you see Crystal Gayle - she'd better cut her hair now too. She's too old to have that mangy mane.

I am thankful for many things this holiday. Thankful for my hair of course, all conditioned, styled and healthy. Thankful for my family and friends and good health and the prosperity that I do have (as so many are facing financial difficulties at this time) I hope that all of you have a pleasant thanksgiving, and if any of you have unsightly ponytails, please give it a second thought PEOPLE!

P.S. I hope to keep up better with my blog in the future - hint hint Dan, cut me a break and let me get some www time!

We must have been at the same store! One of those pony-tailed guys even had on what looked like pajama pants. Part of me wishes I could just go out "as is" and not care what others are thinking. But I do.
Happy Thanksgiving! Maybe you'll get a laptop for Christmas. That's the only reason I don't have to fight for my time on the computer.
