My dad was a licensed barber. Owned his own shop in the 1930s, left it to fight in WWII and wound up staying in the Army. He kept his Pennsylvania barber license current, though, until 1994...always said he might want to barber again.

Well, one year he looked into getting his license transferred to Maryland where he was living then, and the rigamarole and government rules made it too hard and too expensive. He was going to have to go back to barber school just to transfer!

I know, I know, all the rules are to protect us and keep us safe. But the guy cut my hair all my life 'til I left home for the Army, and whenever I was home afterward, and I never got a bad haircut from him.

And of course, the price was right!
