Barbershop haircuts

I got a haircut today, and it may well be the shortest my hair has ever been. I think it looks pretty good though. I used to occasionally get my hair cut at a barbershop a couple blocks away, but the building it was in got torn down, and I didn't know where it relocated to. But! I found it the other day! It's behind the barbecue place across the highway from where it used to be!

And just the other day the hair place (is Fantastic Sam's a 'hair salon'?) a block away from us that I went to all the time closed down, so I needed to find a new place to get my hair cut, especially now that I can't drop by anyplace in Boulder after work (since I am sans auto all summer). So it was a nice bit of timing on the universe's part that I rediscovered it just when I needed to.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that having your hair cut at a barber's by a... well, a cowboy, basically, is a very different experience than getting it cut at a hair salon by a small asian woman. My only complaint is that I have to remember to take my checkbook, because they don't take credit cards and I never have cash.
