^^ yes, it's funny because many of us know who you are since that one pic with you in the aviators has made its rounds thru the internet and I think everyone has seen it by now. also since most of us watched British Style Genius, we "know" you from that. nod[1].gif

Great memories.smile.gif

In '69, I remember going for a No2 crop - the usual guy was shut - Wednesday half-day. (Bad timing.)

I was taking a bird out that night and needed the barnet cut so, risked a local fella... not a great plan.

I tried to explain a razor parting - it ended up looking I'd been done with an axe.

I told him to shave the lot and, he was so surprised, he went to the electrical shop next door to get the owner to watch. (Like I gave a shit.) satisfied.gif

Job done, I went home and my mother just about had a fit. The old man laughed, saying it would grow back... and hoped I hadn't paid to be scalped.

The (potential) new bird took one look as I met her off a bus, and I was binned before getting to the disco.

School the next day - I was a grammar school boy - the head, casting his eyes over assembly, did the classic 'double take', gave me the who the fuqq are you? look? - but couldn't fathom out who I was and had me launched out for a week - and caned.

His exact words, when I was identified, was along the lines of: 'Vaughan! You look like an animal. Go home and tell your parents to call me.'

It was a good week off, I went swimming, hung about outside the local convent school gates and got a tan.

Happy days. happy.gif
