Hair - Ben's hair to be more specific

The little slide show above (now it is just pictures) is for your entertainment only - not to be tried at home.
As for the music I chose to accompany it - well, I'm sorry if it offends you - but it's the only song that came to mind every time I looked at Ben. (The music was from the 70's musical Aquarius and the song was "Hair")

He was determined to grow his hair for one year. He almost succeeded - he made it 11 months, which I think is pretty dang good. And determined he was - not me nor his lady love could convince him to cut it. No matter how we tried, threatened, bribed or begged. Didn't faze him one bit - nope, not him. He would just grin and stroke his beard and run his hand thru that mop on his head (it was a soft mop - I must admit that). But the day of reckoning came - he decided just as quickly to cut his hair as he decided to grow it.

Glad to have my boy back - that's all I have to say about that.


  1. That's Ben? Ben who brought us Rita's while we were working downtown? That shaggy Grizzly Adams?!?!Good grief! But, he is still a cutie even if he is buried under a mound of hair!
    p.s. LOVE the song!!!

  2. Yes, Christie - none other!
    Miss those days :)
    He does clean up well, though, doesn't he? :)
