Robert`s New Do Part 1

Jon and Robert laughed when they saw each other. They were at Toad`s for their biweekly coffee/tea meeting. At, they found out, the same time in their respective towns they`d gone to their old favorite barbers and got shaves and haircuts. Obviously, stories of some simple magnitude were involved, that were quite similar in many details. I`ll tell Robert`s.
Once again, this time because of financial upheavals, Robert was going to have to make big changes in his life. Fortunately, he had a chance of success because his health was improving every day. He was going to try to go back to work. He wouldn`t need a big job and his short term memory improvement would further help insure success.
Thus, Robert found himself in front of George and Harold`s Back Avenue Clip Joint. Since he couldn`t toss newspapers all night, he`d have to quit being Santa Grampy, quit giving whisker hugs, or being the hobbit on the white knoll. He walked in to make an appointment. Opps. George didn`t have a customer for an hour and a half. Oops. Two minutes later he was in the chair.
After washing his hair and beard and a few preliminary cuts, George said, "You know, Evangeline is grinning now, don`t you?" Evangeline was Robert`s passed wife.
"Yep, I don`t know why I`m doing this now."
"Yes, you do. You just don`t want to admit Evangeline brought you in here today."
"Yep." Not much else was said for thirty minutes. He was swung around so he faced the mirror.
"You look 20 years younger. Women will act differently around you."
"That`s scary."
"Let me take a picture for my wife." It turned out to be for more folks than his wife.
"O.K."
George sent the picture to Robert`s son, James. The deed was announced to the world before Robert left the shop. How the world reacted is a story for another time.
