I left Lee Z, Jitters and Smokey Banter at the store and headed for Snippet’s Barber Shoppe.
I figured I owed myself another close shave.
The sign outside reads: “Snippet’s, The Barber Of Civil, Shave And A Haircut 10 Cents”
Frank Snippet had once been Follyhood’s “Barber To The Stars”, before he lost his leg in a freak accident at a carnival sideshow.
After that, he moved to Sea Czar City and set up his chair at the Harbour House Hotel.
The shop walls are lined with photos of Frank with base ballplayers and movie greats like Homefree Bowcart, Eden Gardner and Tommy Gunn Boyle.
Frank was the guy who came up with the slick idea to shave Fuel Burner”s head.
So I shouldn’t have been surprised to see the famous director, Coursen Tells, already in the chair
