Shave And A Haircut

I remember as a kid people would sing a jingle:
Shave and a haircut, dum dum.


This statue of the guy in the chair getting the shave and haircut is sort of nostalgic to me. 

Always sort of relaxing to sit back and get cleaned up!

Especially the hot lather on your face in that reclining position. 

Then of course, all is well until the gunslinger barges in and ruins everything. ;-)

Color Me Different

I saw this restaurant and followed the color in to take this photo.

They had these multi-colored figurines lined up proudly on the ledge overlooking the tables and patrons. 

Each was different, but also the same. 

They had no faces, and were cut this way and that into segments of color (head, torso, butts, arms, legs, feet)...uniformity, but diversity. 

They are low-tech, but reminded me of robots or toy soldiers, but without the guns--just standing in colorful attention ushering people in to sit and eat and enjoy. ;-)
