Good Morning, Everyone! ⛷ To SKI Or Not To SKI… ⛷
⛷⛷ One just can’t help but wonder why he’d wait till he got there
To realize that he could use a STYLE for his hair
The idea’s a unique one, I’d have to give them that
But since he’s going skiing, won’t his hair be ‘neath a hat?
And looking at the guy’s head, that’s a lot of hair we’re seein’
The CURVEs and waves he’s sporting…just how long has it been?
Well anyway, the shop must be a hit atop the slopes
I’m sure they took a BALLOT to decide the Barber’s hopes…
He came to them and offered his business to UPROOT
If they’d give him a chance up there, amongst the skis and boots
The Barber is a skier, far as sports goes, it’s his best
And he was always known to be a CUT ABOVE THE REST.
And one night as he tossed and turned and couldn’t get to sleep
He wondered how he’d get to ski and still a business keep
So what started out a Snow Job ended up reality
At 50 bucks a clip, he gets to work AND gets to ski! ⛷⛷
SNOW… let’s get DOWN to work. Today’s words. Maybe Ballot caused you to want to bolt, and with Uproot you couldn’t get “Out” out of your head…Not new words, but FRESHly FALLEN anagrams. Well done, Dave! Ok, it’s early, let’s take a MILK RUN over to our cartoon. Honestly, I’ve NEVER-EVER seen anything like this. A Barber Shop atop the slopes! With an old-fashioned Barber POLE…GRIPping image, right? Kind of BOWLed me over! I mean it’s sort of the LAST place you’d expect to see a Barber Shop, right? But then again, what were once considered PIPE dreams, today are realities. Ok. Enough idle CHATTER… Let me shake my TAIL and solve this…Jeff shows us the shop, and a skier getting his hair cut. We see the barber CUTting quickly, little hairs flying around. The skier is happy, saying “Nothing ‘TOPS‘ the place. The answer mentions the Mountaintop…The shop is, a : “CUT ABOVE THE REST“! PARK it right here, Folks, this is a great one LINER! Dave has CARVEd us out another one! Ok…Eye candy. We got skis. A SKI LIFT complete with tiny little people. (Great detail, Jeff). Those scissors in MOTION. And then we have the jar with the combs in Barbicide, and that iconic RED and white Barber Pole. The red being the only true color in the pic. Well, anyone out there who knows me, knows that even with the icicles HANGing off it, that pole is Brooklyn memories to me…and it just WARMS my heart. The POLE it is! So, there you have it Folks, Done!
Have a great day, Everyone! And remember…Skiing’s not for everyone…It may be a WINTER activity, but to some of us, it’s a real FALL sport…Just Sayin’ 🎿🙋🏻
