A few weeks ago, I mentioned our seeing a beauty salon with a funny name while driving through rural North Carolina and asked for other humorous names people had seen for places of beautification. Here's the list in the order in which I received them (minus a few that I would not post):
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
A reader named Anita has a salon yet to be named. Her punny sister thinks it would be just hysterical to call it "Anita Haircut" (I-need-a haircut) Her husband had a different take on it - "Anita Style."
Head Quarters (do they charge only 25 cents?!)
Here's an idea for the name of a hair salon that shares rental space with a dog groomer - Beauty and the Beast
3 Designing Women
Curl Up and Dye (in Edmonton, AB, and several other places)
Rock Star Hair - Hmm, I would be hesitant about that one!
The Mane Event
Hairs R US
90% Salon and Spa
Mop Shop Hair Salon
Scissor Happy (might leave with no hair left!?)
If you'd like to add other salon names through the comments, just look for the comment link at the end of this blog post.
some personal updates...
The taxes are done and ready to mail today. Phew! That's one dreaded chore I don't have to feel bad about putting off for another 362 days or so....
My wife and I are finally entering this century technologically - we've ordered a laptop with XP! With a grandson 700 miles away, we've asked his mom to send pictures as often as possible. Our old hand-me-up desktop computer with Windows 98SE and a dial-up modem from our son Mark has been great, but we've been sensing the need for something faster. Now we need to decide soon what to do about faster internet - BellSouth DSL, a Verizon wireless internet card, satellite, other? The only option for cable here is Charter, and we've heard enough friends complain about their customer (dis)service that we'll not opt for that. Any words of wisdom, particularly from but not limited to any of you in the Greenville area?
Our grandson Drew went to see his pediatrician yesterday. He has grown 1.5 inches in length, but the doctor is concerned that he's not gaining as much as he should. He's up to 4 lbs. 15 oz - almost a 5-pound bag of sugar now! 😎 But in the past two weeks he's gained only 7 oz. He should be gaining that amount in one week's time at this stage of his development. (Apparently he's going to be tall and thin like his maternal grandfather.... Actually, the man in question is short and dumpy.)
The doctor made several suggestions and has scheduled him to return next Monday. I'll keep you posted. Thanks to all who've been praying for him. Please continue. We have no new pictures as of now, but maybe by the end of the week....

What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?
