Haircut time coming up

PostPost by: miked » Tue Apr 07, 2020 7:51 pm

Anybody tried buying a set of hair clippers (dubbers). Selling out fast. I just spent 25 minutes buying some on Ebay from a UK seller with decent feedback.
:D :D :D

I finally gave in this weekend and let the wife cut my hair. I've resisted this since we got married but don't much choice at the minute.

To be fair she did a good job, especially considering it was her first attempt. Have paid for worse hair cuts in the past.

Luckily, being a tightwad, I've had my wife do the barnet for many years.

Strangely, she totally refuses to allow me to return the compliment.

Going away to sea for 4 months at a time, as I did, I can tell you the difference between a good haircut and a bad one is about 2 weeks.

I've used Remmington clippers for nearly 20 years (I'm on my 3rd), saved me a fortune on hairdressers and saves a lot of time too. It works a treat especially as I have much less hair nowadays.

OK John. You've foxed me here. Care to explain or are you casting nasturtiums are my silken, flowing locks?
