Is it just me or is there anyone else that think the bald look is horrible. The skin heads took up this trend and sadly it has now been adopted by all walks of life. Its almost like we have been invaded by aliens. I think some men do it to cover up male pattern baldness, well it doesnt work and what is wrong with going bald naturally. So come on men dont be vain grow it back so us women can run our hands through it.

Queenie - Do you like a combover?

No way. Nothing looks worse than a balding man with longer hair at the sides - it looks plain silly. Once it starts going, lop it all off - that's what I'll be doing.
Of, and short hair is MUCH easier to look after.

what about a baldy on top with a beard? Upside-down face!

My pet hate: baldies who compensate with hair everywhere else. Worst TV ad in my opinion is the northern chap with a bald head but shoulder length hair who pushes over bits of double while shouting at the top of his voice "Buy woon, get woon free!" Don't worry about baldness, guys. I know it's upsetting for you when it happens, but a nice man with a good personality wins hands down, whether hairy or not.

I have given this further thought and am sold on the combover. I am going to ditch my clippers, grow what is left and find someone in Lewes who can give me a Donald Trump. Any recommendations?

Gary you prat, I dont like combovers or men that shave off their hair. I do like balding men that accept the fact and dont try to hide it by combovers or shaving it all off.

I'm also after a merkin. Can I get one in town?

I believe Mrs Twine knits merkins from yoghurt and hemp if you ask nicely

Glad to oblige, Gary dear. Though someone wound down their car window as I passed today and said I didn't know my Arts from my elbow. I think that was what he said. And I was very hurt, because as you know, I have been a leading member of the Arts and Crafts community in Lewes for many years. However, one soldiers on, and I will be very glad to crochet you a merkin if you will specify size and colour.

Is it still fashionable for collar and cuffs to match? If so it will have to be orange.

Gary - my post to you didn't appear. I think Mr Webbo must have a headache or something. Orange will be fine if you think it suits your complection, but what about size and style?

The biggest size possible and in pink would suit him better than orange. In regards to style I doubt if he is fussy.

Well, Queenie dear, I am afraid I am going to have to disappoint Gary. On looking through my pattern books, under the impression he wanted a jerkin, I find that is not what he had in mind. I understand there is a lady in Brighton who has more expertise in that kind of product. I think she is called Ann Summers. Perhaps he will find what he is looking for there. In the meantime, I have found some nice patterns for jerkins, and have already started on one for hubby. So if there is anyone who would like a jerkin, knitted in my favourite standby, painted yogurt, I am happy to hear from you.

Mrs Twine - you are such a sweetie. Thank you so much for your offer of a merkin. Can you make it large so as to offer some freedom of movement. Sorry to be a fusspot but will it have a zip or buttons. I once had a nasty experience with a zip.

Gary you are awful but I like you. Goodnight.

For a haircut that is, I don't think they sell merkins, although maybe you could ask for some sweepings and get Mrs Twine to knit one?

Gary - I don't know if you were able to read Mrs Twine's message above. I was puzzled until I looked up your word. Had to go to three difference dictionaries before I found it. Mrs Twine clearly hasn't got your type of mind and probably all the better for that. Why not get Queenie to make you one?
