Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…


I like both of these!  And they’re color coordinated, like it was meant to be!




My Friend Marianne…


I met a wonderfully open and lovely woman named Marianne on the whale watching cruise.  She and her husband were in Maui for their 15th wedding anniversary.  She was wearing a scarf and I presumed she’d had breast cancer like me and after awhile I just had to strike up a conversation as I was sweating under my wig and a hat and wishing I’d just gone the scarf route.  It turns out she has alopecia and refuses to wear a wig, instead wearing scarves or going “topless” as she calls it 😉

She is a nurse from Ohio and has gotten very comfortable with her condition. She has lovely tattooed eyebrows and even though her head remains bald, her eyelashes apparently come and go, growing in for a couple of years, then falling out again.  We had a great time talking about cultural differences and women’s feelings about their appearances.  Hi, Marianne!  Thanks for spending time with me…
