  1. Good Morning, Everyone…💈HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW💈

    🎶 That’s life, that’s life…You take the joy, you take the sorrow….That’s life, that’s life…You’re here today and gone tomorrow…🎶 “Here Today and Gone Tomorrow” – The Ray Conniff Singers 1973 https://tinyurl.com/mryzaapr

    💈 He’s tried to ROTATE strands around, but he still feels the WEIGHT,
    Of watching as his crowning glory lessens on his pate…
    A comb in hand, he’ll HOIST it up…but not much does it find,
    (And ONION doesn’t fit the mold…I’m sure you will not mind)…
    Our guy today, I’ll call him Lou…is shown feeling despair…
    It’s hard to brush off the fact that he’s now INTO THIN “HAIR”! 💈

    So…. Today we meet LOU SINIT and his wife BARBER-a…And we’re given a puzzle where David’s generously COMBed through his hints to give us an easy, breezy go of it. He’s offered us FOLLICLES… https://tinyurl.com/2dejn72y , BALD, and VANISHING in our question, while Jeff, never one to RECEDE into the background, has PARTED with dialogue that’s giving us “SHAVE” and “HEAD”. In addition, Jeff’s showing us Lou putting his hand INTO strands of his THINning HAIR….and there’s those tell-tale quotation marks in our solve to TOP it off…So let’s face it Folks…”Mirror, mirror brings the pall”…and we’ve no need to split HAIRS over this one…We’re definitely CONDITIONED by now to know where we’re HEADed…Lou’s gradually going BALD because his Follicles are vanishing…INTO THIN “HAIR” https://tinyurl.com/232f988v …And we’ve easily BRUSHED back another one!
    So…HAIR you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…and this puzzle puts me in mind of something a friend of mine said when at his 50th Birthday party, and in the process of losing his hair, was given a comb as a gag gift…”Thank you all”, he said, “I’ll never PART with it”…To which one of the gifters answered…”You’re very welcome…it was a small price TOUPEE”…

    …And a little added bonus…since we’re already HAIR… There once lived an old, cruel King, who happened to be bald. He had three sons, but strongly favored his youngest. In an effort to ensure that only this youngest son would succeed him, the King kidnapped a Sorceress, and promised her freedom in exchange for a wish. “I wish for my youngest son to be my heir,” said the King…Said son immediately disappeared…and the King was no longer bald…Give it a minute…💈🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. 🤷🏻‍♀️With her restaurant’s ONION supply seemingly vanishing INTO THIN AIR, she decided to HOIST out the scale to keep daily track of the WEIGHT…and also ROTATE the menus a bit…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🥦🧅She watched the man in produce as he’d check the scales for WEIGHT,
    And replenish the vegetables…Displays he would ROTATE…
    Switch one’s selling much better versus products that did lack,
    And HOIST the sacks to empty out…keep everything on track…
    He’d start out at the ONION bin and spray from here to there…
    Cool water across all if it..absorbed INTO THIN AIR …🧅🥦

  4. 🤷🏻‍♂️Nothing pleasant ‘bout losing one’s hair,
    And watching your head become bare…
    But an old saying goes,
    No way grass ever grows…
    On a street that is busy…So there! 🤷🏻‍♂️

    👍🏻Lou’s upset ‘cause he’s losing his crown,
    And of course it’s got him feeling down…
    But to shave it all off…
    Put an end to the coif?
    Not the worst idea to kick around…👍🏻

    🤷🏻‍♀️Barber-a tells him there’s not much to do,
    Pretty soon the whole thing will be through…
    What is left soon will part,
    And then Lou…he will start…
    Going forward looking all anew! 🤷🏻‍♀️

    👍🏻Bald men still have their charm, that’s for sure,
    Hair alone isn’t what spells allure…
    Yes, the look’s not the same,
    But the gist of the game…
    Isn’t based just on hair…there’s much more…👍🏻

    ❤️Let’s hope Lou comes to grips with the loss,
    And finds peace with his dome…now a ‘gloss…
    And I’m sure Barb will find,
    That she loves him in kind…
    And still finds him handsome…just because! ❤️

  5. Hairalula ! This was definitely a fun – Friday ! I got all the anagrams and they didn’t WEIGHT me down ! My brain took a HOIST, and it made me ROTATE to get all of them ! So I’ll have a little ONION with my eggs ! Great fun ! I’m sure we all concentrate on our hair follicles and don’t want them to vanish INTO THIN HAIR ! Very fun and entertaining jumble ! Can’t wait to Hair the rest of the comments ! And Angela you started off so correct with” Hair today , gone tomorrow “ , everyone have a great fun Friday !!!

  6. Saw an immediate HAIR but managed nothing after that. So speedily unscrambled anagrams to finish off the Friday puzzle. Wonderful posting about all, Angela…and I think I even got your ending anecdote….hmmm, sorcerer didn’t know difference between HEIR and HAIR, I guess ??

    Have always loved Ray Conniff. A few years before your album, he did a 3 part series…S’wonderful, S’awful nice, S’marvelous…with just background singers with absolutely wonderfully bouncy arrangements.

  7. Good morning. A great two days in a row. No problem with the words and was able to get another blind solve. Enjoyed all your posts Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  8. My jumble slump continues despite being a member of the thinning hair society myself!A go on the anagrams after a pause on rotate, but again too many letters for me to solve the cartoon despite hair bring an obvious 4 letter word choice.

  9. Awesome! Got the four solves pretty quickly. Then the big clue to me was the word “vanishing” that made “into thin hair” appear! Yuk yuk yuk 😜
