Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 25th day of August, 2017.

Today is / was my Mom’s Birthday and she would have been 79.

Happy Birthday Mom and I hope that you are laughing with all of our Angels.


Okay so thought at this very minute is BANGS.

I envy those ladies who have the patience and have all their hair the same length.

I have always had bangs as you can see from my front page.

I do love bangs but when mine have a mind all their own.

The rest of my hair looks great but my bangs this morning were doing a little jig on their own.

One hair up and another one down all along the way.

So after trying a few things – decided to just wet my bangs and blow them dry.

It worked but took precious time.

Now it is time to go …..


I hope that you are having an excellent hair day.

Funny how a few little pieces of hair can disrupt your morning.

I am happy now that they look more normal.

They did have a little dance to start the day and who can argue with that.

Happy Friday.


Special Hello: to all those people who got up this morning and looked at their hair and said “dancing again” ……..

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday May 21st, 2015.

Beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

Today is TRY SOMETHING NEW day …..

or at least for me.

I am wearing my hair off my face and up.

I always have bangs so this is definitely new.

Perhaps I have done this in the privacy of my home but not out in public.

I do remember I had my hair french-braided back in the 70’s, and it was off my face then.

Time for a change.

Most change is due to necessity and same this time.

When I washed my hair night before last I went to bed with wet hair.

I knew this was wrong but did so anyway.

My bangs went crazy.

So let’s see what happens today.

It feels good and that is all that matters.

Perhaps it is time to go and purchase some more headbands.

So go forth in the world today and try something new.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those who try something new and to the rest who want to but are not just quite ready.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Welcome to Monday, June 18th, 2012 ….

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton ….. the sky is a bit overcast but the sun is breaking through.

I hope that you all had a great weekend.

As I was waiting for my computer ….. I was on the home page of my blog, and noticed that my bangs from the pre-school photo are exactly the same as my bangs today.

Guess my Mom and I cut the same way.  I wished that I could tell her that but she has passed away a long time ago.  But then again perhaps she knows ( smiling ).

I had a great weekend ….. was busy but managed to get some downtime in along the way.

I had two great walks with Alvin …. each time we were outside for over an hour (even though we were not walking the whole time).

Mr. Alvin and I love to stop and chat with neighbours.  I will admit that I do most of the talking but he does all of the “kissing” ….. oh, Mr. Alvin.

Well it is time to sign off and finish getting ready for work.

Have the best Monday ever.

Special Hello to all the people that walk their “puppies” every night …. you rock.

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin …. (who is curled up and catching 50 winks while his Momma types on her blog) ….


P.S. I am up to “11” followers …. Thank you readers ….. thank you so much.
