Change can be hard and that’s why I have been getting my hair cut at the same place ever since I was born. I got my first hair cut by my dad’s friend Linus Countegan or as I always called him ” Len The Barber”. He was a really nice guy, and cut my hair until the mid 80’s when Don took over the barber shop on the corner of Hermansau and Clark streets. I still get my hair cut there to this day. My wife keeps telling me to get my hair cut at her beauty salon, and Teresa is really nice, but I just like going to an old school barber shop where they trim my sideburns with a straight razor.
Sadly Len passed away at the age of 95, and I will miss him. You can read his obit HERE I am not much for writing ,and It’s hard for me to express feelings into words, so I thought I would post a pic of Len giving me my first hair cut. I think this is the first time I posted a pic of me on Pure Saginaw.
