I went to get my haircut and find the barbershop closed. So as not to make a complete wasted trip, I went two doors down to a nice little store that sells military surplus and other memorabilia. The owners son has a space set up where he sells some old odds and ends as well. I checked out some of the military stuff, but his father wasn't around, so I couldn't check on the prices of items of interest. I did find a nice little oddity. His kid had one of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd Street Survivor albums with the flames in the back ground. The album released at the time of the airplane crash, and they did a recall of the album and rereleased it with the band standing against a plain black background. It isn't worth alot, but I still have all my old LP's and thought this would be a nice one to keep. Upon checking out, I asked about the barber. Come to find out they were running a meth lab out of the basement. Can't beat that for a cover. One old grey haired barber and what appeared to be his wife doing the hair cutting. Back to finding a barber that actually cuts the hair the way you ask them to again. Oh well, I guess it will be easier for me to find a new barber than the crackheads finding their new supplier : )

Mark Twain's autobiography (part one) comes out Monday. Have to make a trip to the bookstore. Read everything else he has written, will be nice to get some fresh material. Suppose to be three in all. Just in time for winter reading. Leave it to Mark Twain to delay the release of it until one hundred years after his death.
