I love being near military bases!

On two of our stays so far we’ve been near military bases.  The first was Parris Island and now we’re near Pensacola Naval Air base.  I don’t want to reenlist at this age, but I still feel at home around the bases and the service members.

Today, I found yet another reason to love it.  Barbershops.  I had forgotten what it was like to get a haircut from a barber that does thousands of them.  Jodi usually cuts my hair, but she’s out of town this week.  Plus, I can’t find our clippers.  Anyways, on the rare occasions that I have to go to a chain barber it takes me a while to explain how to cut my hair and then it usually ends up short of expectations.

But, not at a barber that deals with the military.  I barely have to say a word.  High fade, #2 or #3 on top, leave some bangs and skin tight at the bottom.  Done and done.  The barber I went to today in Pensacola even used hot shaving cream and a bic razor all around.  Fantastic!

As always, I find places using Yelp.  The reviews are often a life saver.  Don’t forget to check in and leave your own reviews.
