Every five weeks. Which brings up a gripe of mine. These ladies can come home from the hair stylist with their hair curled, straightened, colored, bleached, highlighted, . . . in short, anything goes from the confines of the hairdresser's lair and we men are supposed to fall all over ourselves raving about the new do. I, on the other hand, have been tired of wearing this 1970's porno looking mustache since, well, the 1970's. Yet, if I threaten to cut it away, I get the old,"NO! You'll look like a dork! Your nose is too big! The kids and/or the grandchild won't like it!". Jeez . . . how old do I have to be to be the boss of me . . .?

Me: "There's more than one way to skin a cat." You: "No, there's just one. Skin it, man."

Rock on, Odeo! Real men cut their own hair! When I trim the old mustache it looks like I did it with a chainsaw. Nobody says anything though, they know I might shave the damn thing off if they do.

When my folks lived on New York street we had a retired barber for a neighbor. Before that my dad cut our hair, every one of us got a 50's buzz cut, like it or not. Haircuts were a buck and a quarter back then, but old man Porter had a barber chair in the kitchen and would cut our hair for 50 cents, any way we liked it. The Beatles were beginning to tour about then, I believe I heard him coin the phrase,"Damn Longhairs!". Good old guy though . . .

Yeah . . . then I get the "You should try the Just For Men" hair color. To hell with that!! I like the salt and pepper look of my hair. Although recently there appears to be more and more salt and less pepper . . .

Whenever I get tired of how long it is, I cut it. That varies a lot. The same goes with facial hair. I've had muttonchops for several months and am probably going to shave them off in the next couple of days. I may or may not leave a moustache. It will depend on my mood at the time.

Losing or gaining weight takes time. There's nothing I can do about my height, but my hair is something I can control. Well, all except for where it won't grow anymore.

Yep! If she'd just let me out of the basement I would show her who's boss!

Hmmm . . . seems I remember something in the agreement I signed . . . "session will end immediately and law enforcement will be notified". Never had the ba . . intestinal fortitude to push it.

Man, y'all got me jammin' & feelin' oh so fly with all the great tunes! Am grateful for that WattsTax vid. From now on I will think of Watts I will think of that & smile. This home schooling is fun!

If I thought I could look as cool as David Crosby I'd grow out the remainder. He almost cut his hair, ya know. Happened just the other day...

short ad first, but this best vid

four or so times a year, my hair doesn't grow too fast most of the time.

Larry's retiring next year, d*mn.
he's really good with the beard.

Roe: here's an idea.
get moustache wax, grow a really big moustache instead, big handlebar moustache, see how the little woman likes that.

"porn moustache???" maybe it secretly turns her on? maybe she's secretly one of these womyn who are insanely jealous?

"I'm going with Ronaldo the next time he goes back to his homeland..."

well, a nod's as good as a wink to a blind owl, T_O_Bobster. I chased that gawker a lil' harder & watched the number. would post it & enlighten all the brethren but am afraid ms. crump would be envious of all the fine moves. How long does it take to get a passport these days?

Not until we regain a functional government. I sort of look like George Washington now.

Yes it's true. I measure our government by the length of my hair. Sorta.
