What Petal looked like when she practised social distancing

With all this staying home and social distancing, many of us have been hanging out till we can get our hair cut, trimmed, coloured, whatever. My hair is well down past my shoulders now and Vince is starting to look a bit unkempt, for want of a better word. ‘Unkempt’ would probably be a good word for the state of Petal, when we first took her in. She had been running wild in the bush for at least two years. And she was very into ‘social distancing’. In fact you couldn’t get anywhere near her! I guess she was just a bit ahead of her time. Have you been to a hair-dresser lately or are you still waiting?

@JudyEv No, she doesn´t want to cut her long beautiful straight hair which is almost up to her behind. Instead, I showed and taught her how to sew in an old sewing machine of her late mother-in-law. The very old one where you have to move your feet back and fort when sewing.

I do not plan to go to a hair-dresser for a long time. So, I would need to cut my hair in front myself, and take my wife's assistance for the hair at my back. I am not sure how it goes, but well, many folks are turning into barbers at home these days!!

@xFiacre At least we are lucky here.. there are barbers here who are on call. Yes, you need to take appointment, and they charge twice the amount, plus travelling allowance...but at least you can get the job done at very comfort of your home...at least it gives me some solace that lockdown has helped some folks!

I talked with my friend whose been my hairdresser and she said she is overwhelmed right now. I told her I'd check back in a couple weeks to see if things are settling down for her. My hair is thick and naturally curly. It doesn't require a lot of work but when it gets fuller/longer I tend to get headaches more frequent. When she trims it, they stop.
