Got a couple of minute before we head out with Daughters Lynn and Jane and their families to a Japanese Steakhouse...a bit of drama mixed with food. But I did remember you asked if I could describe the change in texture of my hair that seemed to precede my diagnosis. Well all my life my hair after shampooing feels light..fine...blow away...the kind of hair that is going to do what it wants too...complete with 'cowlicks' and all. About six months before diagnosis or even feeling poorly my hair changed in texture...rather than fine it felt coarse...almost like it had a thin coating. The thin coating was dry...not oily at all...the strands of my hair just felt thicker...When Darlin' Delora suggested it might be changing or shifting hormones levels..well, I of course ignored that...after all I don't intend to have one of those life change things or mid-life crisis until at least 70!!!! Anyway the upshot is, I think this depression that accompanies PC may have its genesis in the endocrine system rather than the central nervous system...but that really turns out to be a which came first, 'the chicken or the egg', question.

On another note, Delora's mom and dad will celebrate their 72nd wedding anniversary on November 11. Hey buddy...after that long you have earned your stripes...AND separate bedrooms.

Updates later...right now..everything is cool...still workin' on 'Buyin' Time' but everytime I start...I just crack up thinking of viv and her rap going 'chuka...chuka...chuka'

Love all you guys :) and hugs Bill
