    Question The Bear was thinking that the day was going to go bad quickly…

    …but it turned out alright. Bear went with She Bear to get her hair done yesterday morning (quit laughing, Bear likes sharing time with She Bear, even if it means sitting in a beauty salon for four hours!) While there Bear watched all manner of people come and go. Towards the end of the wait both Bears noticed a man that had just entered the shop and was acting kind of strange. To start with (and here Bear must apologize for stereotyping) the man looked wild, Wild unkempt hair and beard, ragged clothes, and an overall disheveled look about him.

    He stopped just inside the door and just stood there looking at the mostly empty shop; She Bear was the only customer at the time. Even after the manager asks if she could help him he neither moved nor spoke. She asks once more and he mumbled that he needed a haircut. Manager asks if he had been there before and he said he thought so. She asked his phone number, he in turn asks how long the wait would be, manager answers that they could get to him just as soon as she got his phone number. He gets a really blank look on his face and starts searching his pockets. Bear was watching really closely to make sure he did not come out with a weapon.

    He mutters he does not know his phone number. The manager says “that’s fine; we’ll just call you Mr. X”. He replies “OK I’m Mr. X” He then goes to the chair and gets about a half inch taken off of his below shoulder length hair, pays with a credit card when he was finished, tipped the stylist and left. Nothing out of the way happened it was just a strange thing. Oh well I guess you just had to be there. Bear said so…

    At least he tipped the stylist.

    Why are you this bear fellow always glued at the hip? Does he know you post about him all the time?

    Glad everything's OK. I tend to get Mrs tdave to the salon then go run errands myself.

    Maybe he was thinking about robbing the salon until he saw The Bear!

    Maybe he's just a really, really awkward person. Good job keeping an eye out, though. I probably would have fallen asleep somewhere in the 2nd hour.

    Say Bear was She Bear getting what used to be called a Permanent back in the 60s and 70s? It smelled something awful. My Mom and her sister sometimes gave each other DIY permanents at home. I hate that smell.

    I know a great gal at a local salon. She is the ONLY one that cuts my hair (both of them).
