Hair and More . . .

Jan and I headed out about 2pm for an afternoon of hair stuff. Of course, more for her than me.

I dropped her off at the SuperCuts in Friendswood and then I drove back over to Lou’s Barbershop, where Lou has been cutting my hair since 1998. He did say that since I didn’t have as much hair for him to cut as when we started out together, he’d throw in a free beard trim.

Hey, something free!

And to show you the difference, I was able drop Jan off, drive to my barber, get my hair cut, drive back to SuperCuts, and It was still another 30 minutes before she was finally done. But then she has a lot more hair to work with.

And looks a lot better when she’s done, too.

Finishing up about 4:15, we now headed up to the Katy area to meet Brandi, Lowell, and Landon at Torchy’s Tacos, our new favorite taco place.

And it was just as great as last time. Really wish they’d get one down here in the Clear Lake area.

Leaving Torchy’s, Jan rode back with Brandi while I made a stop at a nearby Home Depot for a few things before joining them at their house. Before we left for home they filled us in on their upcoming ski trip.

They’re all three leaving early Saturday morning for a week of skiing in Steamboat Springs, CO. Brandi and Lowell have been skiing a number of times before, but this will be Landon’s first time.

And although Landon has flown before, this is the first time that he’ll have some idea about what’s going on. And he says he’s really looking forward to it.

On a final noted, back in August, right before we started gate guarding, I ordered couple of these Vent Insulators to help keep out the heat while we were on the gate.

And they worked great. Normally the covers stay in the vent openings unless we’re actually using the vent fans, but about a week or so ago it was nice enough to open the windows and use the fans.

But when it got cold again, we just closed the vents and didn’t put the insulators back up. And I could really tell the difference in the amount of cold leaking in. Very noticeable just standing under insulated vent vs. the non-insulated one.

Check them out.
