His response was, “You’ll have to ask Larra. She’s in charge.”
I knew who I wanted to trim and style Jim’s hair. My friend Judy had referred me to her. I had only had one haircut from Lori but she was very meticulous when cutting. So today I asked him if he wanted to have his hair trimmed. He said, “Whatever you want, dear.”
So I called Lori-Anne McBurney at “Hair Frenzy” in Langley and made an appointment for him. He was so easy and willing. LOL. When Jim sat in the chair he started with his usual story about how we met. Yeah, Mr. Macho said, “I was sitting on the beach in Maui and Larra came over and asked me what time it was.” Unbeknownst to Jim, Lori-Anne already knew how we had met. She looked at me and I shook my head. We smiled.
Jim is such a gentleman, well-trained by all the women in his past. Lori-Anne asked how much to cut off his hair. Jim said, “Whatever Larra says. She’s the boss.” While Lori-Anne meticulously cut his hair, sideburns, and eyebrows, and shaved his neck, much conversation was had by all.
Jim was happy with his haircut. Later that night Jim said, “I’m glad you suggested I have my hair cut. It feels so much better, and looks so much neater.”
Update: Lori-Anne, the stylist, recommended a shampoo for me that would wash the yellow out of my hair, and leave it a “glimmering white.” A few days later she came by Larra’s house to drop off the product. I was out back, working in the garden after overheating my computer.
Larra: Thank you Lori for the free shampoo and conditioner and a sample shampoo too. That was most generous of you.
Larra said, “Let’s take a picture.”
I said OK, and brought my rake with me. “What’s that for?” Lori-Anne asked.
“It’s my prop,” I explained. “When Larra got me to come to Surrey I thought it was so they could make me a Surrey Tech Worker. But instead, she just wanted to make me a farmer. This rake is my prop so my friends back on Maui will know what happened to me.
“Well, that, and cleaning up dog poop.”
Lori-Anne laughed so hard she almost collapsed.
