Brothers Campfire Corona Fade

Hello Friends!

I have been reading a few posts about haircuts during this tough time we are going through together.

Many are giving themselves haircuts as barbershops are not in operation in a lot of areas.

Not Happening!

I know a few foofy young men that have to have thier hair just so and this is a devastating blow.

I am trying to feel bad for them. I will search diligently for a tear from my glass eye!

Where is the tie, Bro? By the way, you missed a lock.

The men I roll with all decided to get buzz cuts for an easy clip. I respect that. It is practical.

Like this, Just Shorter and Way Less Pollen

My Beloved has been cutting my hair for around 15 years to save us around 20-40 US dollars a month. In fact, I cannot remember the last time I went to a barber.

Money does not grow on trees. It is extracted from scalps.

My job requires a clean look and I am grateful for her giving me a respectable cut.

Before we go on, let me tell you about the Willow Manor Urban Farm tradition.

To make things interesting, we pick the most inopportune time possible to cut hair. Today, I was sitting in my chair minding my own business when It was decided that it was hair cut time.

I take a look at the time and see it is dark and the temperature is 48 degrees Fahrenheit. This is prime hair cut weather!

I also look to another app on my phone.

You guessed it. At night, in the cold, on a full moon. Why, a Beast could hop out out of nowhere and get us!

Fortunately, all went well, and I did not get too cold or scared. The hair cut was a smashing success! Next to my buddies with the buzz cuts, I look like the model with no tie up there!

Nice Fade, Beloved!

Thank you Beloved for the awesome cut!

    Yes, your wife does an awesome job cutting hair. I might have to find a pencil sharpener somewhere…

            I hope you are having fun.
            Also, wanted to say, in case you wish, there could be a connection between my story “Garuka” and yours in the future. My map, I think, allows the kingdom to be located north of yours.

    Wonderful to have someone who knows how to keep you looking sharp.
    It’s starting to look a little ragged at my house!

      Thank you Mary! My beloved does a lot to take care of me! I am grateful! Are you all getting by ok?

    Oooooh. She did a fabulous job!

    My little brother needs a hair cut soooooooo badly! He’s got almost long hair now, but he insists a barber cut it and not his sisters or parents. We use to. It was fun! 😉

      I have never cut hair, but I am fortunate my Beloved can. A buzz cut looks pretty manly. I wonder if he would go for that. Nice job on the Bible App. Perhaps after this you can get a longer plan. I am really excited for you!

      1. Lydia Potter says:

        He use to get buzzes. Now he wants these floppy hair styles that he has to use a gallon of gell on.
        Thanks for making helping me start the Bible App. It’s pretty cool.

        1. Benjamin says:

          Floppy is kinda popular right now. You are welcome on the Bible app. I think you can tead it through this year if you focus! It wont take too much time per day!

          1. Benjamin says:

            No. Not at all. I think a KJV New Testament plan is a good start.

          2. Benjamin says:

            Consistency is key. I recommend that you read the Bible every day. The plan I invited you to is easy.

    Nice hair cut. We recently had to give my youngest brother a hair cut as he desperately needed it. We actually managed to score a barber to do it instead of doing it ourselves. His hair cut’s actually just like yours.

    1. Benjamin says:

      Way neat! At the prison there are barbers. One day I am going to get a haircut at work.

  5. A.S. says:

    Very Neat!! Your wife is a pro at this.
    I am planning to give my brother a haircut due to the lockdown. Let’s see how it turns out 😂

    That’s a really cool tradition 😁 my boyfriend colors my hair to save money and I often use henna (the plant colour), but we haven’t tried haircuts yet

    1. Benjamin says:

      It is nice to work together and save a few dollars! From what I can tell, he does a good job!
