Wise Old Men!

Ok everyone, I want you to imagine a small town beauty shop. I'm in there getting my hair trimmed and highlighted. My hair is probably the longest it has been since I was a little girl, so I made sure she just evened it out.

About 5 minutes after a she starts on my hair the first older gentleman comes in. He wants his hair buzzed off. The girls says, "All of it?" He says nothing on the sides & just buzz on the top. She says, "Are you sure?" He says, "Not much there anyway might as well" Actually he did have a fair amount. He says he won't have to come so often then. HA! I suppose that is a way to save some money. He so cute.

Then after he leaves another gentleman comes in. White hair with beard & mustache. Very distinquished gentleman. He says he wants it trimmed on the side with top feathered more. Says he knows he has a bald spot & it will show more but he doesn't care. He says if you do that, my wife will be happy & then I'll be happy. Well that got the 3 of us in there. We smiled & laughed & commented how nice that was of him to please her. He says, "Well ya but then again its my 3rd wife!" HA! We were all laughing so loud. Then he says, "Actually, I think I'm still in training!" Ha! We could not stop laughing but it was because he was sooooo adorable! He was moving to Southern New Mexico soon and I just loved talking with him. I think the younger guys need to hang out with the older men & learn some things! :-)

My middle daughter (20 yr old) falls in love with every lil old gray headed man she comes across. Since the men in our family don't live very long she has some kinda grampa crush thing going on. I only knew one of my grandfathers and he was a cold as ice kinda grampa to me and my sister........but oh how he loved is only grandson (my brother) maybe because of the fact that he never had a son of his own (2 daughters) who knows! lol Just my dime store psychology speaking of course! lol
