HMMMM... WHAT WAS SCARY?

NOPE.... it is not a tattoo.   I am still waiting to get that...

So.... what was it?

Well.... a few days ago FROGGY suggested I do something with my hair.   AND funnily enough, I had been thinking of doing it for a few months myself.
So, while at the Plaza with my girlfriends yesterday, they suggested I go into Rodney Wayne's and see if they thought I would suit it.  They said I should just DO IT.

So I did.

This is what I got done:

ABOVE:  I got a fringe!  (bangs to some of you).... well???  What do ya think???

I last had a fringe about 13 years ago... but grew it out real fast.    Before that, I was about 15!   Sheesh... a lot of water under the bridge since then.  

Today, we go home.
Once again we will make a day trip of it.... stopping at various places along the way. 

A few more photos from yesterday:

 ABOVE:  Mike and Joyce in the park...

ABOVE: Mike listening to Griffin through the whisper post at the park. 

ABOVE:  Anne, Chris D and me yesterday.  

ONWARD...

We are safely home.  Busy unpacking, and getting ready to weigh in at Weight Watchers.  We were good!  Seriously, only one 'evil' meal, and even then I did NOT go over my daily points allocation.  So, fingers crossed.  Will come back later and report in.

THE HAIR:  thanks to everyone who likes it, or is nice enough to lie!   lol
I am a little worried I look like mutton dressed as lamb (thank you Maria).... but I LOVE my long hair, it is not a problem to me keeping it this length.  And if anyone does think I am mutton dressed as lamb, that is THEIR problem... not mine.  I am going to have long hair till the day I die... and by the time I'm 80 it might even have BLUE steaks in it too.  ha ha ha.

ONWARD... gotta face dem scales!

End of Day:  well the scales were kind.  Stew lost 1.2 kilos and I lost 1.5 kilos... so we are both very happy with out efforts, even while on holiday.
After WW we bought some groceries and came home.  Going to chill out now, we are exhausted from all the travelling.
Photos tomorrow of today's trip.
ON TRACK:  you betcha!
nite nite.

  2. You & me look alike now..... I had a small fringe, but had a deeper one put in a couple of months ago! I think it makes you look younger, and emphasises your eyes.
    Lovely :-)

    I would cut it off to shoulder length too. Long hair is so time consuming, and gets in the way. And past 50 looks so mutton dressed as you know what!

  21. I like the fringe but think it should be a bit shorter as now it seems as if you don't have any eyebrows.

  22. Love the bangs (fringe)! Your color is terrific, too! It's always nice for me to shake things up a little. Change is good! Thanks for sharing pics of the family and your friends!

  26. I love it too Chris, it really suits you and like people have said, emphasises your eyes. They did a great job, and I know what you mean about haircuts being scary sometimes!

    Have a safe and fun trip home.

  30. ok..hate to be Debbie downer here but I hate them!!
    althought if you didn't see the before and after they look fine I just prefer you without..

  31. FRINGE!!! how cute. We call them bangs and I'm hooked haven't been able to grow mine out since I was 22. They soften your face and make you look younger. your eyes are so BLUE! There are a lot of ways to wear fringe and also ways to cut them. They can be tapered layered and done in a lot of different ways. Straight across can be hard to style keeping them that straight but I love them and I think piling your hair into a loose twist with a big clip and letting it spill over would look simply smashing. You have a great head of thick hair!

  32. I Like it! I agree it makes you look younger!! Really makes your eyes shine!!!!

    God Bless~
