    The ghost of that barber still haunts Earl. If he could get rid of that ghost, his hair would grow back.

    well, Earl, lose some of that “thick in the middle” by eating less and exercising more

    The barber did too good of a job, and to make things worse, Earl ate al the hair he cut off

    Yeah. My hair turned white and then fell off the top of my head and stuck to my chin. Same thing with my biceps which ended up at my belly. (sigh)

    I can relate to the thinning hair, but I’ve been fighting the battle of the bulge since childhood.

    The Weeble config has been men’s reward for overdoing intake and avoiding exercise for centuries. Regrets are the payback.

    I wonder if Earl is thick and tired of being thick in the middle?

    I started losing hairline at 16. My mother offered to buy me a wig for my 21st. I turned it down. Too much trouble to maintain it properly. I started shaving my head at my daughter’s suggestion so I would look more like Jean Luc Picard.

    See, everything just rearranges itself! I told my doctor that, he was not amused. They need to develop a sense of humor if they’re going to deal with us old folks!

    Gravity, she’s a cruel mistress.

    I’ve noted the mass of the Earth is increasing. That would explain why everything seems heavier these days.

    I am not as bald as he but I do have a bald spot and the barber used to use thinners on my hair because it was too thick.

    I can relate to Earl. Around 60 years ago I was a teenager with a thick head of hair and a thin waist line. Now I have thin hair and a thick waist line.

    I had the same thing with hair, yet no one I’ve ever mentioned it to has ever heard of “thinning shears.”

    I had a hair stylist who, for many years, seemed to have magic scissors that would cut only the grey hairs. :)

    Earl, if you want a full head of hair then all you have to do is harvest ear hair and transplant it.

    According to Opal, Earl has been ‘thick’ for a very long time.

    I’m rolling up on 71, I started going bald in my early 20’s. I long wave hair, now typical male pattern baldness but not turning grey. My brother turned grey early and has a full head of hair straight as straw.

    I was going complain about Earl’s feeding the wildlife out of a snack bag. It’s a bad idea in general, and has been illegal in Reno since about 2013 (yes, I know: the Pickles’ live in Sparks, but that’s basically a suburb of Reno [not denigrating it: I used to live in Sparks, and it was quite acceptable], though it may have its own rules about feeding wildlife). But then I discovered that there ARE three parks (in Reno), including Virginia Lake Park, where it IS legal to do it (while they’re in the water, I think). Still a bad idea, though.

    I’m slowly losing the battle with gravity. My waistline and butt are bigger and it seems everything else above it is thinner and weaker. Ugh
