Indulge me. I have forgotten this memory. Memory? I get my haircut by Emma. We drive to West Virginia. Yes, it’s a long drive. For a haircut? Yes. And, it is a long time between haircuts since the pandemic hit.
Why? Don’t ask. She’s my daughter in law and Colleen’s youngest. She’s good!
It’s always fun to visit. What other excuse do you need? I don’t know. It’s a 600 mile round trip. We don’t see Emma often enough. Oh! The guilt! And, right about now, I need another haircut! I got a question? Why was Emma riding on the center console? Yes, we always smile when we see Emma!
My blog takes up online memory. I pay for Apple cloud storage. And WordPress is no exception either. I have gone past free memory a long time ago. And now I am past the first tier of paid memory. So, this is the first post after I figured out why my photos would not load up. Out of memory, pay up! Ok, done. So, now it is costing me more to post. I guess it’s vanity? It’s certainly non-profit. Public service? Ha! I think not. There are followers – friends, family, and strangers. Thank you. The intent is to post photographic images and the story behind the pictures. It has ranged far and wide. Today – we are well into Covid, enough so, that we are now vaccinated and maybe, just maybe, there is a glimmer at the other end of the tunnel. Or, not. I can count the haircuts I have had since lockdown began and it is not much more than two shots and a booster’s worth. Somehow, the long hair has not bothered Colleen. So, good! I had two white cats, now, one. It’s something sad to recall. I never could tell which cat was which. I have pictures from the past and I would not venture to guess. Willow typically sits on the sink awaiting something to eat. When did he start that habit? Meanwhile, I upgraded my site today. For better? At least you will continue to see me – for now.
It’s been about 14 months since I had a proper haircut. I cut, and, Colleen cut – my hair. It was Covid. Meanwhile, Colleen got her hair cut. Then, I did. It’s not all that different. Ha! Yes, it is. But, the good news, it seems no one much noticed. I suppose anyone can tell. Colleen does/did. I have to admit (readily, though reluctantly) that her haircut came out very well! It was like spring cleaning. Out with the old, in with the new, it’s good to feel neat again.
Ok, here’s a good one. David started at a shop that did kids haircuts. They charged… a lot. He eventually switched over to a regular barber close to home. They were a group of old guys. David was well behaved and he was rewarded with a lollypop after each cut. His sister accompanied him and she got one too. Then came the time that I was the adult who took him for a cut. The barber handed him one lollypop afterward. And he gave David a second one for his sister. David immediately popped both into his mouth. He responded to my question, “Jules will never know.” Who teaches that kind of logic?
So, after the sugar rush of Xmas, it was time to go for a haircut. Some days you wake up with bad hair. Mine is okay now. Yay! No more Xmas till next year. The tree is very dry…. I would have to say this was a good one (holiday with family and friends).
