Goldfinch60

Morning Stranger.



I get up in the morning,

Walk into the bathroom,

And there in front of me

Is a stranger in the mirror.

The face looks familiar,

But the hair is strange,

It is in a new style,

As it seems to be,

Every morning.

    Know just how you feel, shaved it all off.... much better, nowhere to hide now.
    Once i looked in the mirror and called the police... thought i had an intruder in the house.

      Keep well

      Ahh yes, when we reach the next point of needing our next hair cut - monthly? 2 monthly? 3 monthly?

      • Goldfinch60

        Passed that point two weeks ago!

          Could we cut our own hair, with certain arrangement of mirrors?

        • Jerricho

          Do a hair cut by yourself Sir. Shave it all off if you think it suits you. 😊

            It has crossed my mind but I think I will go back to my Seventies look, have a look at my poem 'Back to the Seventies published in this site on 9th April.

              You are not alone sir... far from it...

              Fortunately, I quit looking in mirrors a long time ago...…. Nice one...

                The trouble is that I still shave and need the mirror for that so that I don't end up cutting my throat!

                Can imagine the almost daily changes in growing hair and the masculine wariness of cutting it back - it may not be too long before barbers are open again Andy my friend.

                • Goldfinch60

                  I am not too bothered, I dealt with my long hair in the seventies and in the eighties I even had it permed.
                  I hope you are keeping well Fay and all is good.

                  ANGELA HERE - Thanks Uncle Andy - We love Dean Martin - Great voice and a great interpreter of a SONG. Only Dean can sing this one ! Cliff Richard wouldnt touch it even though he owns vinyards in Portugal ! PAPA is pleased the Wine sales in the UK are up by 35% ! However Deans Ditty is a warning for all Lockdowners (M & F) not to overindulge on the Vino especially in the current UK hearwave ! I would have thought Chiropodists - Opticians - Beauticians - Dentists & Hairdressers - provided they wear face masks - should have been classed as Essential Workers jusr like Off-licences are. The little pleasures of life. Brian & I have a Lady (who has done My Hair for Years) who visits once a Fortnight to do our Hair (peripetetic) on a Thurday Evening ! She still comes provided we both have a shower first and we all wear masks. I have a Friend who makes Masks (10 for Β£10 = $13) so we are not depriving the NHS ! I presume you visited the Village Barber (short back & sider for a fiver) and a chance to put the World to rights. In the USA in some States - Barbers Shops (& Quartets have reopened). The Pres has his own Full-time Barnet Engineer ! You*ll morph into a 60s Teddy Boy with a Tony Curtiss & DA ! Thanks for scaring !

                  Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
                  Love Angela & Brian πŸ§‘πŸ€πŸ’™πŸ€πŸ§‘

                    P.S.
                    Loved the song, like Dean.

                    Mine's getting really bushy - i think there's a bird nesting up there somewhere.

                    • Goldfinch60

                      I would not be surprised, obviously the bird in my hair would be a goldfinch or or sixty of them.
