Baldness....mine....impending

Can someone, who is a photo wizard expert techno winnie, take my avatar and make me bald? Maybe a goatee too. My hairline is receeding so fast, I'm so stressed out about it, that I need to see what I will look like bald, plus the wife doesn't want me to shave it all off, but I'm sick of the receeding hairline

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

going for the G. Gordon Liddy look???

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Why don't you just put Ken's head on his avatar!


Relax the receding hairline only means they have less to grab which indicates less pain for you!

I would not shave it off.

Go ahead shave it, just think how unafraid of wind you will be, and if you get caught in the rain, or out of the shower....just wipe it off...

Alright it's a work in progress but I don't have photo wizard and I had to do this on my paint program.

Anyway..Shane made me do it!

Sorry Rick...I was bored and I wanted to see what you could potentially look like......I think it would look good

With age comes wisdom and power.

Own your baldness and don't believe the media hype - all men don't care that their hair is thinning, all men don't need an extra 3 inches, and all men don't have erectile dysfunction.

Keep yourself fit (for your age), carry yourself with confidence and dignity, men will respect you, women will be attracted to you.

And if that doesn't work, flash cash. Young women may not be attracted to bald men, but they all come running like mosquitoes to the bug-zapper when the $$$ comes out.

You look like a beer drinking Arab! Just change the color a little more to make it look more like a turban.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Damn it was a work in progress!

Actually I worked last night and still haven't gotten any sleep.

Sleep deprivation, it's a twisted thing!

In all seriousness though Rick....all kidding aside. You should try the bald look with a goatee...it would look good......don't pay any attention to my shitty art work...I'm better with a paintbrush and acrylics .

If ya don't like it...you can always grow the hair back and shave the goatee off .

Just my .02!

I don't know about that. Once you shave it, it may never come back, so make sure you know what your doing.

If it doesn't grow back, you could always be a stand in for Ken.

Remember you said that when you start complaining that your wife's boobs went south since you married her.

Rick, I say shave it. Seems like it would look fine. Unless you have an ugly scalp.
