The Graduate 

Celebration abounded here at 5 and A Beagle this past weekend. #4 and her friends are bidding farewell to high school and are preparing to embark on the next leg of the journey. Just a few provincial exams remain, a summer of everything they can pack into it, and then it's off to college, university, work, travels.... wherever life takes them.

Who's That Looking Back at Me? 

This past Sunday I went for a long overdue haircut. I sat in the chair as the stylist proceeded to pin up the sections of hair she wanted out of the way – a clump clipped up from the back, another from the left side and another from the right. I glanced into the mirror, chin down, as she prepared to start snipping on a thin layer at the back and who did I see looking back at me...?

My God! When did I turn into Aunt Bee?

Gray hair, lovely 1950’s style granny updo, double chin….

"Flibbertigibbet!" When did this happen? I felt like I should be scolding someone for not finishing their drink “Opie, you haven't finished your milk. We can't put it back in the cow, you know.” Now, I loved Aunt Bee - she was loving, nurturing, baked a great apple pie ... but I don't want to look like her... not yet!

I didn’t have time on Sunday for anything other than the cut but I made an appointment for later this week to have my hair coloured. That will take care of the gray, but what do I do about the double chin? I guess I’ll have to refrain from looking down – only straight ahead or up from now on.
