I promised these two really nice guys, who just started this barbershop in my neighborhood this year, that I believed in them. So I told them that I would come in once a month, no matter what and be one of their regular customers. I told them that the first 18 months are the hardest for a new business. And I wanted to help them because it just made sense. So, every first Saturday, I walk down to their shop, on my way doing shopping and get a haircut. Their price is $15 for the haircut. So I always give them a $20 bill.
All I tell them when they cut my hair is, “just make it age appropriate”. I tell them to just make what you do fit my age.
So, this is my new haircut. And no. The pipe I’m smoking is the one I bought last month. But also, below my haircut is a picture of the new hat I bought for a dollar at this dollar store where I shop that’s about 1 1/2 miles away.
So first my haircut.
And no. The pipe I’m smoking is one I bought from Amazon last month for about $12. It’s, I think made of Hickory, which is why it has sort of cracked. That’s why I wanted to spend a bit more this month to get this really nice bent that’s Briar. Briar just lasts longer and smokes better. Anyhow, the first thing I said when my friend the barber was done was. “hey cool! I look like a Marine!” And we both laughed. Because I was never able to serve in the armed services because of my spine. But I did try twice to enlist, during the Vietnam war because I wanted to stand up for my country. I was hoping to go in as a medic. But well. No big deal. Anyhow, that’s me.
Now, here’s the really cool hat I bought for a $1. Actually as I remember it. I think it cost my $6. But I wanted it because it’s the kind I always used to wear when I was out doing stuff, when I was at school. simple and basic.
Here’s my new hat.
But since it does not have a back brim. I’m definitely going to begin using sunscreen on my face and neck.
Now, the next time I go out shopping I’m going to take a picture of the cart that I pull fully loaded with me wearing one of the two backpacks that I bought so I could do my shopping. And I should be able to do that sometime in about 10 days or so.
