This week, Susan gives us one of her own photographs as our prompt

Stanley didn’t want to have his hair cut. At six, he didn’t think it necessary, but when his Dad said he would get to sit on a candy stool at a marshmallow table, he changed his mind.
Joe had a lot of experience with kids who played up when it was haircut time, so came up with the idea of an outdoor barber’s with striped ‘candy’ stools.
The kids loved it, and when finished, got to dip their hand into the candy jar for real.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Smart dad, who understand child psychology well.

  3. We could do with more barbers’ shops like that – one’s for adults too! Nice one.

    • Thanks Keith. I know McDs do mushroom stools for the kids as I’d threatened my MIL that we were having our wedding reception there!
      Merry Christmas to you and your family.
