SUBJECT:  HandsomeHusband’s bald spot

I’d like to start out by saying that I’m not posting this picture to be mean nor to tease.   HH specifically TOLD me to take a picture of his bald spot for today’s post.  He’s had it ever since we first started dating twenty years ago.  It was slightly smaller in diameter back then and over the years, it has expanded its reach over the back of his head.
I happen to like his bald spot.  
I love seeing the smattering of freckles that his exposed scalp reveals. 
I love kissing him there and feeling the warmth of his skin on my lips.  
I love him.

My hubby had one of those when we first started dating and now shaves his head because there isn't much left! He says it's proof that God has a sense of humor - his hair is sliding off his head and into his ears!

The changes out bodies go through with age!
My hubby has been bald headed since we met, so I have never known him when he had hair! I see nothing wrong with it at all.
Less to take care of for him!!
Take care and great photo!!

My late DH started with a bald spot when he was about 50 years old and then before he passed, he was pretty much bald. He had such a full thick head of beautiful black curls. What he had left was dark gray laced with gray. It was still beautiful, but not much left.

My present DH has a full head of silver hair. Looks very distinguished.

Mari - HH still has a lot of hair - it's gotten a little grayer now since the kids have come into our lives!

SaraG - On especially bad hair days, I wish everyone was bald.

Iona - My mother's mom and dad both had beautiful white hair. I hope I have that gene!

bentonflocke - I was feeling pretty mushy when I wrote this post, I guess it shows. ;)
