The Haircut

For almost twenty years my beautiful wife Kathy has had long hair.

Today we are in Reno and she is getting it cut short because it keeps falling out.

Combination of cancer and Covid has left her gorgeous hair a scalp wreck.

I hope with all of my heart this haircut can give her hair a chance to heal.

Most guys (me included) always take hair for granted.

I’m a run a comb through it kind of guy and if I look like a gray haired version of Alfalfa from The Little Rascals well it’s Okie Dokie with me.
