|Ready for plarking|
The hat's on. That means Handy Andy has a serious plark project or projects lined up in the Things I get to do today.
|Extra hair is off the neck and out the back|
hole of the hat. Cool and comfortable.
Prissy curls or long hair falling forward, blocking vision, requiring one hand to reposition stray locks, tossing the head to move the hair is strictly nonsense, at least for this practical person. Get the job(s) done and be able to focus on the task, that's her motto.
|Before the hat goes on, position 4 or 5 big|
pin curls to hold the hair up and under the
hat. At the end of the work day, they are
ready to be released and brushed out.
When the hat comes off, there's serious problem. Hat hair--everybody knows what that is and has her own version of it--smashed, shapeless and ugly. There's this thing about Handy Andy, however. When she's working, she's working. When she's not, she "cleans up real good." The hat-hair thing has created a serious impediment to the clean-up. Going out to eat wearing a cap because at its worst it is better than the hair is a grim thing to face.
|Good enough! Doesn't look like she sweated all|
day in the muggy heat on a serious yard plark.
Handy Andy, being who she is, put her thinking cap on, so to speak, and waited for a solution.
