Shaving with sheep shears

I don’t get to town all that often, so I naturally like to put on the dog, spiff myself up a bit.  Sometimes that includes shaving, but I’ve found the average electric just doesn’t do the job.  Add to that the fact the disposables and the replaceable blade razors leave a person with a dangerous piece of throwaway I’ve not yet figured out any use for.

Still, I like to look nice when I go to town, so I use the tool I also use to remove a lot of clogged hair from the two longhaired cats I share the place with.  The shorthairs consider it a blessing to be exempt.

Starting out here’s how it appears:

After.  You can see there’s a difference if you look closely.

Add a John B Stetson, a cleanest shirt and bluejeans, galluses, a pair of deadman’s boots from some thrift store and I’ll have the hearts of the town  ladies all a-flutter with the fantods.

Gotta get moving, dress up and walk up the hill to see if Little Red’s available for the borrowing.  Later this day maybe I’ll tell you what exciting happened there.

    • Hi Guttermutt. Yeah, you should have seen them. I was having to fight them off with a stick, though bystanders would never have noticed. They’re subtle, them towney women. Thank you for coming by. Gracias, Jules

  4. I guess great minds think a like. Thanks for coming by and tagging my site. I like your style. I sneaked in to Austin for a few years back, but I found out that Texas surounds Austin. If I would of met some folks like you I may of stayed for a while but Yankees have no place in Texas unless your traveling thru. OLD JULES keep it coming 😀 your OK.
