If you’re referring to Sly yes it is but if you’re referring to the other picture that’s me. Of course I’m a natural redhead. I wouldn’t dare go to get my hair done during Covid. Sorry it was a little messy. I wasn’t expecting to try to entice anyone with my hot looks at the time.
😱. It took me almost a year but I couldn’t stand it anymore... I must have been in really bad shape because it took the stylist 4 hrs to get me presentable ... SMH
That’s Harry my Chihuahua mix. He’s been wearing wigs ever since he was attacked by a coyote and his hair won’t grow back. He’s very embarrassed about his baldness. He was attacked in November and this is how much his hair is growing back. I found a coyote dragging them off at four in the morning and they’ve never been able to use the dog door sense. I thought he was dead. It was pretty horrifying. I almost had to tackle the damn coyote to get the dog away from him.
woulda been dead coyote here... I’m an animal lover but I’ll protect what’s mine! You got him back so good for you. Tell him I think his hair is beautiful!

@EllieMay Shaking YOUR head, now that you've had your haircut, means you're supposed to toss those perfectly coiffed locks of hair over your shoulder... 😁

At the end of my hysterectomy (too much information) my gynecologist asked me if I ever gave any thought to hormone replacement therapy. I told him I think about it about 35 times a day and everyone in the operating room laughed but him. I don’t think he’s figured it out yet and it’s been a couple of decades now. He swore he would never do a hysterectomy with an epidural again after he did it with me because I taunted him throughout the whole procedure. Good times.
I can't believe someone would do that procedure with the patient AWAKE! :eek:

I should ! They did a Great job. I have a lot of PREMATURE grey... so the color was for me... but I don’t really worry too much what anyone else thinks so I’ll most likely throw may cap on and roll out 😝

I've got a bit of a conundrum and maybe there's somebody out there who may have a bit of advice for me.

Years ago I put my son on the deed to my property, thinking that when I die it would be easier for him to deal with the property. He has had NO responsibility regarding the property - hasn't paid the taxes, hasn't paid for any improvements, doesn't do anything at all about this property. It is in name only.

So now to the road widening project the city is undergoing. I'm selling a bit of frontage to the city. In reality, this means MY SON and I are selling a bit of frontage to the city. So far both of us have signed the contract and the conveyance to the city papers, but now we're coming to the closing and the distribution of funds and the title company has sent me the paperwork to sign.

My son is in Texas and I'm in California. If I ask for the money to be electronically transferred into my bank account, the bank will refuse it because it will be in my and my son's names. If I ask them to issue a check and send it to me, then I have to TRUST the mail to get it to my son safely for him to endorse, then send it safely back to me.

I'm thinking of opening a separate account in both our names, having the funds deposited into that account, then taking his name off the account. I haven't spoken to the bank yet, so I don't know if that's even possible.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Opening the account in both of your names will work and then you can move the money to your personal account.. the only issue that you may have would be closing the account.he would have to be present for that I think.. if you trust your son, you can just add his name to your current account and then forget about it;-)

As my dads only child, my name is on all of his accounts... I don’t ever use them, but it gives him the security of knowing that I can help him handle “whatever” in the event of an emergency... he added my name as an authorized user without my knowledge or consent at the time using my b-day and social security number..

I trust my son, but his wife is another story.

@Yvonne G I'm thinking it's a good idea to open a new account in both your names... Or a new account in your name but with your son as an authorized user. I don't know if that would satisfy the bank in having both your names on the account, or not. In any case, with the new account, you could transfer the money into your other personal account.

I don't like the idea of mailing checks back and forth... Especially if you don't trust your son's wife.

Poor Harry! I'm glad you were able to save him! We have coyotes in this part of Florida, and they prey on a wide range of animals. Cattlemen around here sometimes keep donkeys with their cattle herds to help protect the calves from packs of coyotes.
How do the donkeys protect them?
