funny this came up, I got offered a life guard job yesterday

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/06/2017:  07:18:49


How many hours a week, Dean?

OM45GE - Posted - 05/06/2017:  07:26:44


That could be a fun diversion.

DeanT - Posted - 05/06/2017:  11:52:40


I'm seriously looking into it. It would be 6 am- noon, 5 says a week so 30 hours. I got offered the job, because I'm there all the time anyways, swimming and working out. The job is at the fitness center at the Air Force base. I just got back from the WSU Aquatics center (Wichita State University), where I was inquiring about classes to get my certification. $200, and 27 hours, and I could be certified by June 2. I'll take that info back to the Base fitness center on Monday, and go from there. 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/06/2017:  12:09:54


I like the sound of that.

DeanT - Posted - 05/06/2017:  12:29:54


me too! 

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/06/2017:  13:56:02


Good stuff,,it'll keep you young

DeanT - Posted - 05/06/2017:  14:31:28


I swim 2 1/2 miles there every other day, and when I'm not swimming, I'm lifting weights in the gym, which is right next to the pool... so for now, this staying young stuff is working!

OM45GE - Posted - 05/06/2017:  17:21:29


Swimming is wonderful exercise. I used to swim 1 1/4 most days but can't since I tore my rotator cuffs. I can still swim some, just not as far.

DeanT - Posted - 05/06/2017:  18:07:10


I started swimming for a couple triathlons I'm doing this summer... now I'm hooked

OM45GE - Posted - 05/06/2017:  18:25:40


It was almost like meditation to me. You get into a rhythm and just go. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/07/2017:  02:56:24


and your hair turns blond

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/07/2017:  14:29:03


Only Dutch guys get the blonde,,Celtic mutts not so much. 😎

OM45GE - Posted - 05/07/2017:  15:09:07


I've had grey hair since I was in my 20's and the chlorine us d to turn it yellow. I used Ultra Swim shampoo to get the chlorine and yellow out. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/07/2017:  17:36:44


I just had all my blond cut off, I had let it grow out for 6 months and I looked like a beach bum. The barber lady didn't want to do it, she liked it. I got a buzz cut for the summer

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/07/2017:  18:49:08


We used to get buzz cuts every summer as kids. Dad sent us to this old guy who cut hair (actually pulled it ,his scissors and electric trimmer were so dull) in his home - 50 cents a pop.

DeanT - Posted - 05/08/2017:  02:20:10


inflation! It's $6 at the AF base barber now

OM45GE - Posted - 05/08/2017:  02:41:48


$18 at the barber shop in town. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/08/2017:  06:19:29


Just got one at Superclips - $22 with tip

DeanT - Posted - 05/08/2017:  10:01:39


Wow... it's getting expensive! 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/08/2017:  10:51:04


I'll say. It's still not enough to make me want to grow it out long again.

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/08/2017:  12:50:49


Me too,, too much maintenance

DeanT - Posted - 05/08/2017:  14:30:41


Me three! I should just get clippers and do it myself...

dmiller - Posted - 05/08/2017:  16:39:00


My Dad cut our hair until we were teenagers.  Buzz cuts every summer, but he was more "forgiving" in the fall.  At 17 or 18 years old, I decided to do it myself.  I never ever went to a professional barber until I was in my mid 50's.  After trying several different barbers over the following years - - I realized/ decided that men barbers are MUCH better than women.  Seems like the guys "get it" when you tell them how you want your hair cut, and women (imo) assume you mean something else so you don't end up with the haircut you wanted when the woman barber is involved.

I AGREE!!! Men barbers know how to mow the grass with a machine. When a woman barber starts with the two-fingers and scissors, I know it's not going to work. My idea of a hair cut, is no need for a comb between hair cuts. 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/08/2017:  19:11:50


I enjoy the vibe of a barbershop 

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/08/2017:  20:14:04


They used to be hangouts for swapping lies, and often the barber sold bootleg booze

OM45GE - Posted - 05/09/2017:  02:36:13


The barber in a town I lived in 20 years ago sold (and smoked a lot of) pot. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/09/2017:  06:04:44


I've been going to a military barber shop for over 30 years, it's like an assembly line. No dope or booze there!

OM45GE - Posted - 05/09/2017:  10:42:40


This guy was a strange dude. He was really friendly if he liked you but a real butt hole if he didn't. I moved away and went back for a visit several years later. I bumped into him and he actually started to ream me out for not coming for haircuts any more.

DeanT - Posted - 05/09/2017:  15:28:00


you were cheating on him...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/09/2017:  16:14:57


I think you're right. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/09/2017:  18:00:56


I've probably had over a hundred barbers over the years. The turnover is big at the base barber shop.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/10/2017:  02:36:47


Yeah, but can't beat the price. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/10/2017:  10:10:21


that's why i keep going there!

OM45GE - Posted - 05/10/2017:  13:34:14


I used to go to a barber in Cambridge who cut hair in the Navy and kept at it when he left. I changed to a guy here in town when I started working from home and he was a barber in the Army.

DeanT - Posted - 05/10/2017:  17:50:16


ever try a flat-top?

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/10/2017:  23:51:32


Like Howie Long?

OM45GE - Posted - 05/11/2017:  02:47:00


I got flattops when I was a kid. Had a stick of goo to keep the front sticking up. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/11/2017:  04:36:00


I like a flat top to minimize my klingon skull ridge...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/11/2017:  07:24:18


LOL

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/11/2017:  09:36:02


Isn't that a sign of intelligence?

OM45GE - Posted - 05/11/2017:  09:55:17


Perhaps you should ask a phrenologist.

DeanT - Posted - 05/11/2017:  11:16:47


or maybe I was dropped on my head when I was born....

OM45GE - Posted - 05/11/2017:  11:36:27


My first wife was born in a little Catholic Church run hospital in northern Maine. The doctor had to drive in for the delivery and the Nun/nurses held her mother's legs together to keep her from being born before the doc got there. Her head was deformed into a point. Her dad was in the Army and supposedly cried when he saw a picture of her. It did get better over time.

DeanT - Posted - 05/11/2017:  15:35:40


I wonder if that procedure is in the nurse's handbook

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/11/2017:  15:50:56


Those nuns were probably envious

DeanT - Posted - 05/11/2017:  17:45:40


I hope they didn't make that a habit

OM45GE - Posted - 05/12/2017:  02:55:53


Haha. Good one. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/12/2017:  15:44:03


My lovely bride just got an air fryer from the big brown truck. Could be interesting.
