It's hard enough to find and keep a decent hairdresser/barber when you live in one place, but when you're on the road, it's pretty much impossible. It can also be expensive, especially if you keep your hair short and so cut it often.

A friend told me that her brother has a Flowbee and he swears by it. I'd seen the ads long ago (in the 80's?) and thought it looked promising, but never knew anyone who had one. So, I looked it up online and checked out various reviews. Then I ordered one!

You attach the Flowbee to a vacuum cleaner hose. You can buy a vacuum with the Flowbee when you order it. Below is a promotional picture I found on amazon that shows how it's used:

There are several Youtube videos of folks using Flowbee as well. I'm not going to make a video myself, but I mean to tell you that I have the best haircut I've had in YEARS and it was quick and easy!! Wish I'd bought one of these years ago.

You can see my haircut in the previous post.

I'll bet you were wondering who cut my hair, right?

California visitors

The weekend before last, my friends Linda and Leroy flew in from San Antonio. Leroy was here for a work function and so we went out to lunch. It was a great visit, tho entirely too short. I visited with Linda and Leroy and their daughters earlier this year when I was in Texas.

On the same day that Linda and Leroy arrived, Sally and Ted arrived from southern Illinois. Sally is my sister. Ted is her fiance. They're getting married the end of this year. Sally was here for a conference for work, so we met and went out to dinner a couple nights. Pictured below: Ted, Sally, me, Brion.

Another good visit, tho again too short!

Lone Pine, CA

Took the pictures below the weekend before last in Lone Pine, CA where I attended a get together of Lazy Daze Ladeze. It was my first get together with a group of RVers and it was awesome. Sorry I don't have more pictures.

While there, a few of us visited Manzanar National Historic Site. Manzanar War Relocation Center was one of ten camps where Japanese American citizens and resident Japanese aliens were interned during World War II.

If you're ever in the area, be sure to check it out. Note that it's likely to stir some emotions.
