Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Well, this is the first week that I have felt we have entered summer. The past year was a very dry year, and it seems the rains and storms this past month were trying to make up for it. But one sunny, warm day and all is forgotten.

So it was time for my summer haircut. I told Denise I was going for a haircut, but she was not prepared for the reality. Actually the last 3-4 years when we lived in Seattle, I cut my own hair, using electric shears and a 1/4" attachment. I saved hundreds of dollars over that length of time. People would ask "do you cut your own hair" to which I would reply "do you think I would pay someone to make me look like this?" But today, I actually did pay someone to make me look like I just got out of 30 days in the county jail. I had to re-acquaint myself with my wife- she was not that happy about it, though. After my shower, I automatically reached the comb- OOPS! I won't need that again for months.

Had a new carpenter out here yesterday to look at about a dozen small projects needed to clean up some of the loose ends. He said he would be here on Monday at 10:00am and he actually came at that time. Very promising start. We shall see.

Hey, I like the new "do"! Very popular these days! You'll enjoy it during the summer months for sure. You didn't take your shears with you to Uruguay? Please tell me that's not one of the "forbidden items" for the one-time shipment of personal goods! Best of luck with the new carpenter. :)

I probably didn't take the shears, because of the 220V requirment. They were most likely 110V. At $3, I can afford to let someone else butcher my head.

I think you paid too much for that hair cut. LOL!
