Back but empty-headed





It's been a bit rough and Saz has kept you up to date so no point in re-hashing.

Suffice it to say I am once again attached to the Net, and I will never turn my computer off again, ever. NOAOS has fixed it so that Paco 'hibernates' who'd of thunk it? Oh and MLS, I didn't do it and don't know how to undo it, but for you and all of us who hate veri...it will get fixed.


I hate how I feel...just...not well. Tired, of course  and a little bit icky and a little bit this and a little bit that; and the cellulitus in my arm, caused, unbelievably by the rubbing of the plastic name tab at the Hospice of all places, means I must try to sleep with my arm elevated and the cashmere scarf tied to the bedpost precisely for that purpose raised a few eyebrows.


My hair is growing in, curly, and the fact that it is also snowy white is making me look more bald than ever. Rather like a bald eagle.


And now a picture to make you smile, circa 1972





The blonde and the Bad Boy

  2. Love the humor in the cashmere thing and really find the photo saying thousands of words. Hope each day is easier.

  3. Hair is such an odd thing... the way it changes. Mine used to be very long, very shiny, and almost straight when I was young. Now, it's gotten wavy/curly, and a lot thinner than it used to be. It's almost "fluffy". I start to understand why many women cut their hair short as they get older. I always thought I would have waist-length hair forever... but that was before I realized that hair changes. 8-)

  4. Glad you're home.
    My husbands hair is still growing curly & his last chemo was late Sept.
    Sorry about the Cellulitis. Skin seems to be very irritated whilst having chemo.
    Hugs and love

  5. Whatever that blonde had, call it allure, spunk, whatnot, she still has it!
    Good to see you up and about, Moanie.

  6. The photos are worth a smile - and maybe a bit more than that, as you were quite pretty - but even more worth a smile is hearing from you again. You are in my prayers, my friend. Do as many wonderful things for yourself as you are able. You deserve a good feeling.

  7. Welcome back, I'm so glad to 'hear' you again. Those photos are great...and for some reason made me want to ask you if you speak fluent french at home together........don't ask me why. Feel better Moannie x

  10. So glad to hear from you, but I am so sorry to hear you are suffering from cellulitus. You have enough on your plate without some old bacteria finding you and causing you pain. I pray you have speedy healing.

    Without Saz to keep us informed, I believe I would have had to jump on a plane and try to find you....do know that you are constantly in our thoughts.

    You were....and are....so beautiful.....inside as well as out. Keep smiling and hoping. If you have time, watch the Walt Disney movie, Tangled. It is about Rapunzel, but it made me laugh out loud this morning...and it has beautiful scenery and music that will take you away....and you will love the horse, I promise. It's worth an hour and 35 minutes of your time. Really....

  12. So glad to hear you're better - and will get even more so. My friend's hair grew back snowy white on the top and front and tight curly salt & pepper at the back. It actually makes her look even more attractive now than before. I'm sure you will get a really up-to-date "do" as soon as you can. I continue to hope and pray all will go well.

  14. It's good to see you at the top of my blogroll - if I had my way you would always be there.

  15. My hair is also slowly returning, its nothing like it was before. Mind you, I did used to colour it before. Now its a whiter shade of badger. And curly into the bargain whereas previously it was straight. (But I used to have it permed.) I still haven't plucked up the courage to go out without wearing my wig, but I'm getting there. Just needs to be slightly longer......

  16. I do hope you will soon feel much better. It's good to see you back --

  17. now listen, moannie. i know you said you envied my hair but you didn't have to go and loose all yours just to make it grow in curly. ;) sorry to hear about the cellulitis, what a rough bit to have to deal with on top of everything else.
