TODAY’S SCHEDULE: A HAIRCUT FOR GARRY – Marilyn Armstrong

GARRY NEEDS A HAIRCUT.
REALLY, GARRY NEEDS SEVERAL HAIRS CUT. 

We didn’t go when he first came back from surgery. For obvious reasons. We haven’t gone since first because he was still recovering from surgery, and then because it was too ridiculously hot.

I don’t mind hot weather, but I really dislike intense humidity and we’ve had both. It turns out, no one likes this weather, including Garry. We were going to do this yesterday, but he came in from cleaning up the walk (dogs, you know) and said “Forget it. It’s too damned HOT.”

That’s something from Garry.

So today’s the day.

It rained yesterday, last night, and a bit this morning. There’s no sunshine. All gray. But it’s in the low 70s and I have windows open. Air conditioning is finally off. At least until the next heat wave hits us later in the week.

I have to go with Garry for this haircut. Once his special headgear comes off, he can’t hear anything. I will have to show the barber how to cut an area very short and where else it can be longer. He needs one very short area (not bald, just shorter) so he can easily find where the magnetic conductor fits.

Garry may not have a lot of hair on top, but his hair on the sides and back of his head is very thick and springy. This is one of those rare times when a little less hair wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

A rather complicated haircut for a guy who’s used to saying. “The usual.” And I get to do the talking. After which, we can pick up a pizza for dinner.

Mrs. Armstrong is not cooking today. MY schedule says “no cooking.” Turn on the little oven and drop the pizza in.

Dinner is served!

  1. I am so overdue for a trim. If I don’t go soon I shall do a Keith Richards and start snipping bits off.

  2. Isn’t it a wonderful feeling after the hair is cut. I was at the hairdresser yesterday for my “short back and sides” and felt like a new person afterwards.

    • Pat, Oh yes!! It’s a “great feeling” as you feel the hair shorn, especially the back of my neck and around my ears. And, yes, I feel “thinner” after a hair cut. Even got my eye brows trimmed.
