FINALLY, a safe haircut!!

So I had my last regular (every5-6 weeks) haircut in Early February.. just before COVID-19 became an everyday reality in our lives.

Man, that was a long time ago.

I am doing my part to flatten the curve. More than likely, saving lives!

Wearing my mask, doing social distancing, and washing my hands or reaching for my handy small bottle of Purell.

Have not gone out much, mainly nearby Food Lion for groceries, I miss indoor music venues, restaurants, and visiting our amazing varieties of Charleston's terrific Craft beer breweries.

My timing actually was very good as everything shut down and people hunkered down at home.

 I moved forward with my plan to add a screened porch addition to a part of the 35-foot long deck across the back of my house.

In addition to having a delightful place to sit outside on a balmy evening (with NO bugs), my 8-year old INSIDE cat Wallis now can wander around - almost outside - watching squirrels scampering and react to birds singing to her.

The virus shutdowns encouraged me to replace the treadmill downstairs in my mini-gym.

I have a small tv monitor showing ROKU entertainment as I do my 30- minutes treading.

Then some weights activity, and finally, on my ExerCycle for 10 minutes. Whew. Sweaty.
But feels so GOOD!

I wanted to share my elation with having my hair cut at a nearby salon that followed all the Virus mandates!

I was comfortable that virus safety rules and regulations were observed with both the cutter and the cuttee (me) wearing masks in a client-restricted and controlled sterile setting.

The owner was a neighbor and I had felt sorry she had to shut down for a LONG time before the OK was given to re-open with certain safety restrictions.

I hesitated for a while and watched daily reports on coronavirus activity that were charted daily.

She is on North Rhett and I suggest you check out the fine service - and style - she offers at her small Revamp Salon shop.

I used to go to a national chain every 5-6 weeks or so to keep my hair neat and short.

Casting Directors seemed to like my neatly-trimmed white beard.

I was chosen for many Extra roles/Background actor times on set at various tv show shooting here and in movies down in Savannah.

BUT, it's a hiatus on The Righteous Gemstones, Season 2, on HBO, so I opted to shave my face.

Nothing was shooting on any sound stages.

Easy to grow another beard when casting activity starts up again.

Of course, I took out my Pixel 3XL phone- cam to capture this months-long awaited tonsure-cutting adventure.

I joked that they might want to use my white hair clumps on my lap and all over the floor to make a fluffy stuffed pillow.

The 4-room salon had a waiting area for me to sit and browse a book on The Beatles. Saw a shot of them in 1964 on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Always interested in photos of the Beatles and this one covered the early years quite well.

I had attended a Beatle concert in San Diego in 1964 and saw Paul McCartney a few times.
Then I was taken alone into the hair shampoo station and, finally into the 2-chair styling room when the other chair emptied.

Everything was cleaned and I settled in for my long-awaited trim.

Snip, snip it all was done with scissors.

Oh, it felt good to be neat and tidy again!

I have been sending out photos as my hirsute situation slowly grew worse and worse.

I plan to send these out to family and friends to show I was once again the face they remembered before I grew the beard

And fought the virus by staying safely at home.

Now, I just need a cold beer!

(Hey, you know the drill on the photos and links to see more details.)

Thanks for stopping by.  Please come by again.

Rats... none of your photo links are good anymore (did you let your Snapfish account lapse?). Ah, well.
