Ooooh. I want to try that.

Oh, dear, can you come down to the workshop for a moment? Bring my clippers, will you?

ROLMAF !!!! My eyes started watering and everthing. DW (Dear Wife) came in to see what was wrong with me and I tried to read it to her. After three attempts I gave up. She had to read it for herself.

HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA! I was holding it together pretty well until I read this:

Whenever things would get a little boring on the cruise, I’d tell her, “Vicki, that haircut looks like
hell,” and it would start all over again.

Oh crap…I now need a new keyboard…

That is sooooo funny. It is not a woodworking story but it did take place in the woodshop so I guess it is OK. It’s not a project that I would recommend that you Lumberjocks take on.

Just relating this tale to my wife has given me a free, life-long pass on assisting her with tonsorial duties in any way.
She began shaking her head and moaning “Noooo” as soon as the words dust collector and hair clippers were uttered in the same sentence.
Thanks, Myron!

HallTree . . . how about this . . . for the next LJ challenge how about incorporating a DC and some sort of personal grooming product. Could make for some interesting pics . . . probably a few divorces as well :-)

Myron . . . do you know if this guy is a LumberJocks? I think he would fit in quite well.
