BRACE YOURSELVES!

You are about to see something you've never seen before.  At least not if you've known me for less than 50 years and I suspect all of you fit in that category.  SWMBO and I were discussing my long hair the other night and joked a bit about getting a buzz cut.  I haven't had one of those since about 1958 or 1959, I'd say.  But yesterday I went to a barber shop (oh, excuse me, a tonsorial salon) and told my "stylist", Ruby, to take it off.  Here are the brutal results.




SWMBO's first comment was "your dad just came out of you!"  She also said "I didn't think you would cut it that short!"  She thinks it will look better when it's grown out a bit.

As for the rest of you, you may now voice your opinions.  But take it easy.  I'm a sensitive guy.

  2. I think it looks great. Nice and cool for the summer. And I have much more gray than you do.

  3. You should have them trim the brows. My lady stylist does mine. A little shorter perhaps.

  6. So, you just got out of the joint after doing 10 to 15 for a felony burglary. You decided to cover your skin head tatts by letting your hair grow long, as these pictures reveal eh?

  7. When I said a little shorter I meant the hair not brows.

  8. Hey, not bad! It reminds me of when my husband shaved off his mustache a couple years ago. The kids had never seen him without it and they were shocked and very happy when he grew it back about a year later.
    I am trying to catch up on all the pictures I missed while away for ten days.
