  2. What a wise reminder, Belinda. So true! I love the overall, homey, small-town feel of this scene.

  4. Knock, knock, two bits! Now, I’ve got the song in my head! I’ll have to listen to the whole thing to get the earworm out. 🤣I love old barbershop signs.

  5. This is an interesting picture. I remember seeing the red-and-white striped pole outside the barbershop in our nearest town when I was young. Have just looked up the origin of this:
    “Ambroise Pare, a 16th-century Frenchman considered the father of modern surgery, started his career as a barber-surgeon. The look of the barber pole is linked to bloodletting, with red representing blood and white representing the bandages used to stem the bleeding.”
    I haven’t seen one for years as these days few hairdressers even advertise themselves as ‘unisex’ anymore – men know they can have their hair cut (and styled) in what were formerly the domain of women’s hairdressers.
