He wasn’t able to get his hair cut before the lockdown. This isn’t really a big issue because…how to put this delicately? Having too much hair on his head hasn’t been a problem for him for decades. But at breakfast I looked up and realized that overnight two furry little animals had crawled onto his face and died.

  1. I am going to have to cut Garry’s hair. It’s getting really difficult. Luckily, he won’t grab Owen’s electric clippers, so it is me and the scissors. Good think I rarely ever cut my hair 🙂
