Barbershop Plus - southwest Ocala

When you don't have a real barber pole, you paint one on the window. But this is more than just a barber shop. It also serves as a purveyor of golf clubs, golf bags and other golf accessories - used, or previously owned! At least one of the barbers is into vintage cars. All the barbers will regale you with hilarious tales while cutting your hair.

I have had the same barber in Hartford for more than 30 years, Jacob. It is in a dumpy office building in downtown Hartford.

Blogger wouldn't let me leave comments last night so I am trying again this morning. I do hope your barber is paying attention when he cuts your hair. I'd hate to think ther could be an oops! factor. :))

Nice place. Interesting business idea to sell more than just haircuts. In Eastern Germany I visited a hairdresser who also served as a restaurant, so when the haircut was done, I got myself a nice meal-:)

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday!

I think it's wonderful when people maintain an active life .. I hope I'll be following in those footsteps.
You're being very active too. Gosh. I'm impressed.
Haley is smart. It's funny when pets get a sense of time and know how to get our attention.
Tiger just had ice-cream. He loves ice-cream. Now he's taking a power-nap again-:)
Hope your Sunday evening will be calm and cosy.

Believe it not... been 40 years since I 'darkened' one of these shops. Got a 'thing' about them.

I never said I didn't have it cut, Jacob. Now that I think about it... closer to 43, really.
