I been wanting to put a mobile barbershop on the road but I can't cut hair, and I also been trying to start a singles forum.

Would you 2 singles be available??? One can cut hair and the other one be the stylist. Yall work that all out. I'm the wheel man.

I just got tired of hair and cut it off. I go out on the deck and set the clippers at 1/4 of an inch and buzz away. My wife trims me up and then I trim my mustache and shave. Takes about 10 minutes. We usually do it before on church on Sundays. It made my life much simpler.

All kiddin' aside...this really is a great idea! I know there are two companies in the area that do mobile dog grooming and they are always busy. People would love to get a haircut on a lunchbreak or after work. Everyone is SO busy nowadays. We even have a Mobile Vet Clinic that comes to three or four small towns!

2 wimmin started a mobile car oil change deal and are doing alright near me in the outskirts of Houston.

When I heard about it I said who would be lazy enough to have to have their oil changed like that instead of going to QuikLube. Turns out I was the dummy. Them yuppies in the offices down town keep them gals swamped.

Yep, we've even gotta mobile windshield service in our little town! Gotta admit, it was really convenient when a rock hit the windshield and I was working full time at the vet clinic. Insurance company handled it all! Went to work, and the windshield company came to me! I think there's more and more call for stuff like that since so many families have both Ma and Pa working full time outside of the home. I know my housecleaning business is keeping me busy! Started cleaning for friends and neighbors and now I have 1-2 calls per week from folks who "heard" I was cleaning houses! It really works out well since we're homeschooling now.

The original "CLIP JOINT"?

That's what I was thinking. Both of um single and with a good job with a future they might podnuh up and buy me out. They could start selling franchises an all of us retire young.

If it's a barber shop I might let um cut mine, but if it's a style shop I pass. There aint but so many different comb overs that they can come up with.

Don't think there's a decent barber shop in the whole state.
I sit down and tell them "Make me look like Redford"
They take to laughin, then toss me out the door?
Just can't find any good craftsmen anymore. hmmmm

A lesson I learned in recent years..The things you need are never far away from where you grew up.
