About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Saturday Photo Hunt - Bad hair



You actually think I'd post a photo of myself with bad hair? Uh...NO! But I will show you when both my daughters volunteered at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa back when they were only 7 and 11. They thought it was great fun to put their hand on a big ball to get a shock so their hair would stand on end. Since their hair was so long it didn't actually stand on end, but you can see it certainly moved! On the left is Jamie age 11 and on the right is Jaclyn age 7.

To see more "bad hair" photos, check out carver' sight or is that site blog here.

I thought of the static ball at the Glodendale Observatory for this theme, but didn't have a picture.

Isn't it great to find someone else's bad hair so we don't have to resort to posting one of ourselves. :0)
Have a great weekend...

Karen said...

Oooh, I forgot about the electric ball shock thingie! NO ONE has good hair after touching that thing!
