    Aaaah! Winning the long hair genetic lottery! How I envy them!
    Course, the long hair gene often skips a generation, I wonder what Patty’s hair is like.

    But it appears the stupid gene is dominant in every generation. And here’s another genetic flash; their dad peed standing up and Ma didn’t/doesn’t!
    Where’s Mendel when you need him?

    Strange, both my parents have short hair and so did I.
    But about 1966-67 it started growing and growing til it was half down my back.
    Could have been some sort of British Beatle infestation.

    Actually people do have a maximum length that is genetic (hair strength/thickness/speed of growth) I’ve met East Indian women whose braided hair was past their ass (which means it probably touched the floor unbraided) whereas I cannot grow my hair past the bottom of my shoulder blades, and even then it looks ragged.

    They never wear it down, so it doesn’t matter.

    I too have long hair, It would have to be cut twice a month if it were short, and its easy to take care of. However I’m waaaay past the age for long hair. Like Dazz I march to my own music. In the interest of science tho, I must ask if ALL their hair is long? Too much info?

    ROFL! Yeah, maybe it’d be TMI, but it’s funny – although I’m feeling the need for some BB after contemplating that. Anyhow, I’m with you and Dazz, I have very long hair and am also way past the age for it, but I wear it up, secured by one of those big ‘hair biter’ clips, so I guess it doesn’t count.

    My hair is as long as it gets in this photo from last July (and rather thin). It was reddish blond as a child and “dishwater” blond (nondescript) as an adult, so I was glad to let it go grey so I don’t have to bother coloring. I consider myself lucky, tho as I NEVER had hair on arms or legs (TMI< I know- use your BB).

    What is BB? And what is the age when long hair is no longer desirable?
    I hope you’re kidding.

    BB is the appreviation for the Brain Bleach that Susan and Marge initiated on this strip and they market (in our imaginations). Stylish women usually start wearing shorter hair as they are older. I cut my own because I no longer go to salon (and always did my own mani-pedis).

    I hope you are referring to Joy and Verl (not to women in general).
