I liked the days when they had the old barbershops,They cut above your ears with a razor.Few things gives me more pleasure than to get that hair above my ears cut with a razor They dont use that old razor much around here,That I know of.I do not care for TV,,But you see this modern barbershop pokes one in your face.

have not been to a barber shop in going on 10 years. Home clippers and a wife. No gossip, waiting in lines and saves money.

well-- they take my glasses off. that would make the t.v. a waste. i cant hardly hear no more too.

i always fall asleep in the chair. bud
tells me that i could never suffer from a whiplash what with the neck i got. i bob my fool head when he's cuttin. i snore while there too. that is what i been told anyway. i dont know that it is true.

when he quits cuttin hair i will become a hippie if my hair holds out.

The Trophy Barbershop on Texas Ave in Baytown still gives real haircuts. $9.50 and that's still better than the $15 at the mall cut.

I don't want some tatto infested, nose studded ear ring expert touchin me. I might dose off in the chair and fergit where I am, and if them earrings wake me up I might come up hugging and grabbin.

Yeah Ole Gil has been cutting mine and my 3 sons hair all their lives.

They even still have a shoeshine boy and all. I usually tip a 5 on mine and granson's. The way that boy pitches a fit in the chair I'd give double pay if he charged it.
