Wade, some of your stories really get me laughing.

I live in a very small village in the country with a downtown section
that's 2 blocks long.   We have 2 barbers.

#1 spends winters in FL and to be honest is rarely open. #2 recently
retired but still runs his shop 2 days a week. Of course sometimes
he travels and isn't open for a week.

I'm trying to find a new barber now and going through the same
thing.    Fortunately for me there is a city about 10 miles away.

Joe, another strong motivation that transcends basic good
grooming in searching for a man's barbershop is the
genuine fear of the current times. Yes, females cutting
men's hair and then making outrageous and false
accusations of inappropriate advances showing up on #me
too. So to clearly avoid any foul and insidious lies
hurled at an ailing septuagenarian half-breed, I'll just
scalp myself and simply claim it was a selfinflicted
attempt in saving money. That way I'm sure I won't be
affiliated with perverted politicians and abnormally
aggressive actors. So its obvious isn't it? I'm much
safer cutting my own hair in spite of the possibility of
injury from using sharp objects around my head.

Look how much money I have saved for imported things like guns. powder, bullets and shells....

There's one place I can go to where the very nice looking young lady will
cut my hair and trim my beard for free. The big problem is she wants me
to go home with her. I stay away as I don't think my wife would approve.

I have male pattern baldness so only have half a head of hair. My hair cutter gets $12 for a mans cut but only charges me $6 because it is only half a head. I get my seat in the chair by calling her and asking if she has time for half a head. I sit in minutes and leave her a ten. The luxuries of living in a small town.

I do hope y'all know I was joking about cutting my own. I
have a full head of hair and simply will not just "buzz-
cut" it like my neighbors do. Non-Drunk Neighbor has
little hair left. His wife sets the clippers to "short"
and skims across his noodle in under 2 minutes. Drunk
Neighbor is a couple years younger than the other but
still gets the same buzz! Both look like they came out of
a Nazi concentration camp only EXTREMELY well fed!

I have cut the majority of the unruly parts and trimmed
around the ears. This will have to do until I can find a
REAL barber shop. The search continues much in the
fashion of Diogenes in search of an honest man. However,
I draw the line to carrying a lamp. In today's society
that could get one committed to an institution. The beard
is gone. Couldn't stand it. Too many years in uniform I
guess. Only the Selleck-like mustache remains, and it'll
stay intact as long as I shoot open sights on the AR15.
