    Had to do training in a nearby town and got turned around on the way back. Been overdue for a haircut so I stopped in a place that was open. Small, just four chairs, all men. A Hispanic man named Rocky was opened so he called me over. He's retired and went to barber college to do something with his time. A black veteran was touching up the flat top on another vet and I commented on the ribbons on his ballcap (SW Asia Service, I've got one too). We all chatted from there. Relaxing atmosphere. Rocky gave me an excellent and careful haircut for the same price I've been overpaying at Great Clips, and says he'll be glad to take off my beard when the time comes (never had a real barber shave before...don't plan to mow it off for awhile but I'm looking forward to it). FINALLY have a barbershop I like. Glad I got lost so I could find it.

    Been seeing Don for nigh 20 years now.
    After every cut I schedule my next cut for four weeks out.

    Sounds like you found the right place.

    Good to know you found a new spot!

    I had been going to Brown's to see Seth in Mulberry, FL for years. Brown's is too far away now to get a haircut during working hours, and Seth does not cut hair on weekends. I am in search of a new barber now.
