Hair today, gone tomorrow

I know this is supposed to be about current things that happen, but I just got these pictures from Dawn Pucci.

Last year at the USBCHA finals, they were raising money for the American Cancer Society. I decided to do my own raising for the cause. I got pledges from spectators and dog trialers an in return I would shave my head.

I had done this about 10 years ago, and there has been many people shaving their head for cancer, but the way people reacted, it made me believe that this doesn't happen much in the USA-I felt the money went to research, and we would all benefit. Some called me a hero for doing it - no, the heroes are those that have to go through the chemo and radiation - I lost my hair willingly.

Herbert Holmes was happy to oblige to shave my head. He being the USBCHA President, and I being the CBCA President, it seemed fitting at the time.
A little of the sides please.

Herbert could open his own barber's shop.

In about 10 minutes, all was gone, and $1100 money was raised.

Six months have passed, and the hair has grown back - however, very grey. I have recently bought shares in the Clairol company (Clairol 114A is my friend).
I offered to cut Herbert's locks, but he declined. I will ask him again when he comes to Brooks this summer to judge EID Classic. Somehow, I think he will chicken out.

  1. To be able to make sure you will be buying the replica watches uk there are some physical features you need to scrutinize. The weight of fake watches is lighter than the original. The markings also differ and there is a slight difference on the size of rolex replica sale. The bracelets of rolex replica sale have authentic screws and not pins which look like screws which are used in replicas. The movement of automatic watch is in very fine series of ticks as it sweeps unlike the fake ones which tick every second. You also look for the box of the replica watches. Designer watch includes certificates and booklets which serve as user's manual and for most brands certificate of warranties are attached. Avoid purchasing auction items with big price slashes. Don't be fooled with attractive offers. If you buy online, see to it that the rolex replica sale has return policies.
