I Discovered
I'm Bald and Didn't Know It!

Me BALD!
A very sad photo taken May 4, 2016

Hair does seem to be a distant memory for male members of my family (sorry sons.) Now, you may not know this, but I an descended from a long line of folks with both Alzheimer’s and bald pates. I didn’t think that I had succumbed to either, but after visiting a dermatologist and being prescribed an ointment to rub on my sun damaged head, (see above) I was forced to re-evaluate. In an attempt to see if the medication was working, I took my first (and, perhaps, my last) "selfie."

To my surprise and shock, I discovered that there was no hair on the top of my head!!!! Really, I had no idea it was gone. When did it leave and how could that happen without my knowing it???? Where was I?

My eyesight is still fairly good. Perhaps the Alzheimer’s is more active than I thought.

By-the-way, have I told you that story before?

Doctor: It's bad news, you are bald and have Alzheimer's.
Patient: Oh well, it could be worse - at least I'm not bald.
God is more generous to bald people.
He gave them one face and is clearing off space for another!
Bald Bill is so bald
you can see what’s on his mind.
Bald Bill is so bald
that he took a shower and got brain-washed.
Bald Bill is so bald,
his ears are hairier than his head.
Bald Bill’s wife nagged him so much,
….his scalp turned gray.
What did Bald Bill say when he got a comb for his birthday?
"Thanks, I’ll never part with it!"
Bald Bill: Couldn’t you see I was going bald?
Barber: No, the shine from your head blinded me.

Enough! Stop it with the bald jokes!
