Now I know it comes partly through my mischievous
spirit and partly to keep life fresh that I do random experiments on the
Captains face and head growth. Last year when I asked for votes on the lack of
facial hair the overwhelming response from all, plus a few rude comments,
resulted in the beard re-growth. At the time I should have copied the email
from Martin as it was so funny. He admitted to being completely traumatised
seeing his father with a naked face, like some cheap, plastic settee. He
also said he had to put his hands over Bear's face and stare into his
eyes to check it was still his dad.
Well this years experiment was the hair growth, I
called it a saga in the title as now we are at the full, elderly, candy
floss stage - I see my worst fears - A Grotty Yachty - who has put on years
and looks positively 'cruddy' even when newly showered and a comb has been used.
On our tour of Long Island yesterday, I realised the hair growth was a bad idea,
there was encouragement from me for the skipper to keep the hat on. Any time the
hat came off the candy floss looked like a bad impression of Captain Weird (for those who can remember The Andy Williams
Show from our younger days - Jimmie Osmond was about six at the time). Action in
the morning then. Why oh why the head growth cannot match the fur on the chest - I don't know, there it just keeps
getting thicker. Billy Connolly was quite right when he said that men of a
certain age thin on top, a wild forest begins to grown on and in the ears, and
bushes grow out of the ends of noses.
Any road up. Other boats had said they are getting
free wi-fi, so we up anchored this morning to move until I got a reasonable
signal, As a coincidence an email arrived and we read it after breakfast this morning.
This time I have cut and paste the email from Kate.
As I read it out loud to 'is nibs' my eyes were watering so much from the
laughter, it took twice as long to read and plenty of noises from himself like -
Huh and MMMMMMMMMmmmmmm
The font I chose to distinguish the email also
made me laugh - Baskerville Old Face - You B - - tard
- Oooo er Skipper, that's another first.
Here is the email................ after the last picture of Scruffy Bear
I feel I have to email even though it’s very late for a work
night should be in bed, been up doing work and thought I would quickly check the
blog, doing so I’ve stayed up to email, as I really needed
It's the hair, I feel I need to let you know I am very
unsure and he looks like an old man desperately trying to stay young, the Santa
attempt at the beard was bad and I’m glad it has been rectified however the
hair, oh the hair Pepe it’s not good.
I feel Jack may start getting
confused and need to say great pa pa if the hair growth continues, especially
the comb over look and the balding look on top, oh dear, it’s painful to talk
Obviously it’s up to you (and not the man in question I
might add) but I really did feel the urge and need to send this straight
away, mostly because I cannot enjoy the blog as much as I can’t help but cringe
at the long white - grey straggly things on his head (well around the edge not
Sod what the old man wants by the way.
sincerely hope you take my views on board and make a suitable decision for
yourself and also us blog followers back home that has to look at the hairy
"Taken on board my Darling" – clippers at the ready
and I will at this point promise - NO FURTHER
The half way stage
