Thanks Barb, age, it is quite the topic, espically since some look better as grays than others. Hence, a good industry the "fountain of youth biz"- touching up, & repairing those that request it. And me, well what can I say, "gray's not quite my color. There's a lot to be said of having a good schedule for those appointments. My thoughts are- healthy aging is to have- "more good hair days, that not"!

Good commentary writing there Barb, thanks & lol !

Loved this Hub, tooo cute/funny!
