You should create a jig for that! Imagine all the time and money you’d save, and it’d give you a good excuse to spend more time in the shop.

Kidding about the jig, but the new haircut certainly makes you look a bit more proper.

The expression on your face… Pure Glee!! You’re really enjoying all this primping and preening, aren’t you?
Much better on the beard Larry… Those things get out of hand very quickly!!
The hair looks cool and comfortable for the heat, low maintenance, very sensible…
Lookin’ Good Larry!!

Yup, looks great for the heat – except that it’s the middle of winter for you! ;-)

You might make a few more sales though with the “refined” looks – at least you won’t scare children and timid women away…......

I like the look, Larry. Good show.

You are aging well, like a fine piece of wood. I like your t-shirt by the way.

Well the clip looks good, Larry…... but please promise us ONE thing:

Now that you have been trimmed both head and foot, if you decide to devote any attention to the area in between, PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY PHOTOS!

After about 40 years with a beard, my brother got rid of it. Decided he spent more time trimming his beard than he would shaving.

If someone from my high school class saw me after 50 some years, they would probably instantly recognize me….....from my haircut and hair style. The glasses and the mustache are new since high school, but not much else.

My hair style and cut have been in and out of style about 5 times in my life…........................

well i was liking the wilder look, but you know me…ive been there done that, and within my heart i think im a grizzly adams type, but i do understand that when dealing with the public and sometimes these more timid women , who want to buy your wood work…well a more trained look is probably wise…but…maybe someday when we men can just be men…we can forget about the barber and for heavens sake…get that shaving blade away from my face…, let me get back to scratching and eating my banana…
