A Haircut and Some Big Blooms
I had never seen Axis in such pandemonium. Richard was downstairs instead of up. He immediately apologized for not even having a chair immediately available. I told him my parking woes.
Halfway through my haircut, Richard offered to have someone go feed my meter. Absolutely unheard of! But why not? I gave an enthusiastic young woman my 3 quarters and described the old Volvo, knowing she would come back with a smile on her face after seeing it, which she did. She reported I had 23 more minutes, plenty of time.
I settled back and enjoyed the rest of my haircut as people came and went all around me and someone reminded Richard his next client had arrived.
Note to self: Never schedule a hair appointment on Saturday. Any weekday is definitely calmer and there is always a legal parking place somewhere around there.
On another note, my beautiful amaryllis of 2-1/2 years ago when I broke my hip suddenly shot up a volley of luscious coral-colored blooms. It’s a shame they come but once a year and last such a short time. But well worth waiting for!
