I was hoping to get my haircut yesterday but there was a mix up with the appointment, however I am delighted to report I am now sporting a brand new short back and sides and can barely contain my excitement.

It seems a little odd that barbers are allowed to work and yet my wife who has a beauty salon specialising in hair, mole, skin tag and cysts removal is not yet allowed to open, except to do pedicures.

Apparently the removal of some of the more yucky, (this being the technical term for the procedure) treatments, omits moisture into the air which can be breathed in, which is why my wife is dressed up with so much PPE she looks more like she is about to undertake open heart surgery.

Now I’m not sure how this Corona virus works and was rather worried for the well-being of my wife should she breathe any of this virus and on that basis I’m rather hoping that when she is doing one of her pedicures that none of her clients should fart too violently, although I have no idea if you can catch Covid 19 from a fart.

On a brighter note here is a photo of my new haircut, I know I should have dressed up a little before having it taken but I was overcome with excitement having just returned from the barber.


About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

  1. Very dashing. Hubby has the original wash and go cut, clippers Zero. My own hair is long, so I drag it back in a pony tail, and if it needs a trim, brush it all forward and trim off the ends.

    Looking good! I’m sure it feel refreshing to have a little chop after all these months. I’m sorry your wife isn’t able to re-open her business yet. I’ve heard a lot of displeasure over the timings of different things, and a lot doesn’t make sense. Re-opening pubs and taking 2m down to 1m just to bring in the money, but not re-opening potentially safer (if chlorine kills it) swimming pools or places where you can get dodgy moles looked at. Ugh, it’s all such a mishmash. In the midst of all of this, we may be overlooking something incredibly dangerous – is it possible to catch the virus through a fart ?!! 😂

    You look positively dapper, sir. For some reason, your smile reminds me of my dad’s. A smile laced with humour and a dash of mischief.🙂
