Even though I am retired, I hate going to the barbers. I don't like other people messing with my hair. So a couple of months ago I invested in an electric hair clipper. You can find quite a lot of utubes showing you how to use them on your own hair. Just to add that even though I am slowly losing my teeth --through cracking up, not decay I hasten to add--- I still have a fine head of hair all over. And still with a bit of colour -- well shade maybe. First time, I restricted myself to 15mm depth of clipper and simply ran all over my head. It worked quite well but my wife wasn't impressed with me loosing my quiff at the front. However, it worked even though the sides of my head were a little bit dense. Second time, I went down to 12mm on the sides and managed to trim up the edges quite straight. I went back to 15mm on the top and avoided the front leaving a proto quif in place. My wife did not comment (?) but I was quite pleased. Third time --- bit of a disaster! I took off the depth guards to try and cut back the hair over my ears ----- I only went and scalped a couple of sq. cm. behind my ear!! Arrgh!! Just have to wait for it to grow back! I managed what I thought was a good sharp line across the back only to be told by my wife that it looked like Hitler's hair cut. Oh My God!! I now look like an old man who cuts his own hair! ------- Oh, hang on, that's exactly what I am! So then -- what stupid things have you been up to recently?
