Today is Veteran's Day, a Federal holiday that honors military veterans of the United States Armed Forces. When Hubby Tony was still working he had the day off, and we would work hard to come up with some type of adventure. Now that he's retired and on endless vacation there was less pressure to make today memorable. We both had a list of things we wanted to accomplish, so after breakfast we went our separate ways.
I started in the kitchen, getting the pumpkin that decorated our door
for Halloween ready for roasting. After I cleaned up that mess I decided
to go get my hair cut at a nearby walk-in hair salon. The salon offers
the option of checking in online. I found out there was a 12 minute
wait-just enough time for me to get my shoes on, get in the car, and
drive the mile to the location.
When I walked in I noticed the monitor that listed the people who had checked in had four names on it. I was second on the list.. There were three beauticians working, and just about the time I sat down and got comfortable one of them called my name. As we walked to her station I mentioned how busy the salon was, and learned that they were giving veterans a free haircut today.
My simple haircut took ten minutes. As I was at the cash register checking out I noticed that there were four new people checked in. I wonder how many of them would not be paying?
