On the scissors.

Cool BS5 stuff:

Whilst having my barnet done by the regular fella who does it (he is from Napoli), we were chatting about his Dad who once cut the barnet of Cary Grant, a fine Bristol icon! This was in the 1960s when said dude was over frequently from America dutifully visiting his Ma, and one presumes having his haircut. The Salon was actually in town but I am claiming this story for BS5 heritage.

I know this story has truth because it was in the paper and on display. My barnet is as stylish as C.G's, I reckon.

Off to jolly old Sainsbury's and I will hit Mental hour but hey ho. I bet Cary Grant had flunkies for that.

I guess the mantal hour was problem free because they were all in Bath!

Stummbling through an aisle of oldies with a tray of hot food (most of which was destined for SS's stomach)I had to kick a few ankles just to get to my table!
