A summer cut with my dad, 24 years later

The perfect Father's Day in El Paso, Texas and Anthony, New Mexico. A wonderful breakfast from my wife. Presents from my wife and daughter. A movie and bowling with my father and daughter.

After dinner, which my mom made for us all at their house in rural Anthony, New Mexico (only about 10 minutes from our house), my father broke out the old Double Ducks thinning scissors I mentioned in a previous post.

They were still in their little red plastic case. And while my daughter watched, my dad trimmed my hair, 24 years after the last one he gave me before he moved to El Paso.

And for a few minutes, I swear I was right back on the deck at 6508 Crane Road.
