Two Little Stories
The Haircut Guy


I was sitting cross-legged on my bed, supposedly studying for finals, a sophomore in college.  It was May of 1957, and my older brother Don’s wife was in labor with their first child.  Wendy eventually arrived, AND I passed the exam.

Don and his wife's young marriage didn’t last and although I saw a fair amount of my niece until she was a teenager, we grew apart (a complicated story) until recently.  During that time, she became a talented and successful businesswoman and married her soul mate.

Over the past few years, we have been in touch more, and thanks to Zoom we’ve spent some time together as a foursome. Our recent Zoom was just Wendy and me. It was a quite a different and fun conversation.   

But, how can I possibly have a 64-year-old niece?
