Wigs and hats

Ok, I'm going to do a fresh post for this. I managed to get the video onto a cd at someone else's house, got home and put the disc into my rubbishy old computer, and it won't recognise it! :-(

I'm still trying, and am really half way there. Now, all I have to do is find somewhere to play the cd, so I can edit it and put it on Utube. Won't be long now, hopefully.

But, in the meantime, I thought I'd put all the pics of hats and wigs (and there are a few... :-) ) I've modelled for your amusement, onto a slide show.... so, here it is:

    I'll wear the green so we can go camouflage, shall I? :-)

    You got a blue one - How much fun you can have without hair!!!

    Saw the total - well over £1K - very well done to you (braver than me)!

    Hiya Topchamp - absolutely right - having great fun as a baldy!! So many more choices than I ever had before!

    The build up was the hardest bit... 2 months with the knowledge I was going to lose my pride and joy at the end of it :-D

    But now, it's just fun now (and such a relief :-) )

    Yes, and with my Duck Call you can take some lovely pictures of Malllard drakes gliding in and floating on the water, not knowing that you and I are staked out from a proper vantage point...in some bushes per-adventure...it will be just like Swan Lake...hehehe

    If the physical CD is recognised by the PC but the actual video files do not run inside any media player then it is probably because you do not have the correct video CODEC installed. Google for "All-In-1" (such as http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Codec_Pack_All_in_1.htm) download and install - should all be fine.

    :-D Completely quackers, Steve!

    You can call the ducks whilst I stoke up the fire (bangers and beans? :-)), and then ...

    ...avoiding the hair-raising possibility of the Nutcracker Suite...

    ...we plant a decoy, duck into the bushes and wait patiently for the arrival of Donald and Daffy

    I shall con-duck-t myself with the greatest duck-corum (artistic licence :-)) as you in-duck-t me and e-duck-ate me into the pro-duck-tive ways of the bird.

    Cool, we're all set then... to the lake!!

    anonymous - unfortunately, though I have 2 disc drives, one is stuck and I can't get the disc out; and the other refuses to read off any disc. It simply says there is no disc. It won't recognise any of the self-written discs I used to use either, though it appears to be reading music cds, as I've heard my son playing them...

    I looked up the codec page you gave, but it has so many negative comments, I'd be wary to even try it with my easily destructible machine (It's the most temperemental pc ever!). I'm pretty sure it's the disc drive that's at fault, as it won't write to cd anymore either (again, refuses to recognise a disc)
    I know I should get it checked out, but finances are telling me I got to wait!

    I appreciate your input, though, and will bear it in mind while I'm trying to sort out the video! Thanks

    Oh my gosh! You look SO awesome in the many different wigs and hat, and of course bald! Wow, and you can dress up in so many styles, from the 60's chic to modern pop star! Anything! Coolness!

    Hiya Frolicsome Kid - Thanks for stopping by here!

    There's a definate advantage to having no hair and lots of wigs and hats - mood changes are hardly a problem if all you have to do is whisk off one item and don another.

    I've got in my sights a long tight-ringlet wig, and also a braided one (just in case I miss my old style too much), which I might get by-and-by... if I keep my hair short!

    And, thanks for the compliments! :-D

    Now that it is all over and a couple of days have passed, you must be enjoying. So is it going to be a wig ?

     
  • At December 30, 2006, Blogger Annelisa said…

    I'm definately settling in and testing the waters on this one... might keep it short for a few months, just for the sheer novelty of it :-)

    As you can see from the piccies, I've plenty of choices for headwear - and I'm enjoying trying them all on, taking turns with them...

    You look great in all the hats! Noy many can pull off hats...well, maybe you don't want to pull yours off! HA! I think your hair is going to look fabulous and funky in about 4 weeks. Like the drk wig best but mostly the hats!

    I love your and Steve's clever Duck Banter on the Webb!!!! LOL!
    Just don't let him cook your Goose...uh Duck?!!

    MOI - You probably like the dark one cos you're blond - I like the blond ones cos I'm naturally dark - makes a change...

    I always liked hats - wore one when I went to interview at Uni, and went to Stirling cos a professor said he liked it (apart from the fantastic scenery, and really easy-going and relaxed atmosphere...)

    lol you are so funny - "on the webb"!! :-D you might just become a sitting duck for some bantum (I'm mean banter) yourself! :-)

    wow u certainly have alotta hats all which look very stylish on you. You did a very brave thing. I don't think I could ever do that with my hair. Its almost to my butt but I would be terrified to shave it even for such a great cause
