A rite of passage at Cole & Pickett Barber Shop

Hunter Durham writes:
When i was young and in high schoolm i kept asking Mr. Cole and Mr. Pickett when i could shave. One day Mr. Cole said, "Today's the day," and Mr. Pickett went to G & M Grill and got a cigar. Mr. Cole heated a towel and put it around my face and then put the cigar in my mouth and lit the ciigar; and there i sat with a lit cigar and and he then put the razor to the strapp, put shaving cream on my face and gave me a shave. I bet it had a least 3 hairs and I continued to smoke the cigar and enter into manhood. - Hunter durham

Remembers laughter from barber shop where father got hair cut

Carol Salato Myers writes:
What a nice tribute to two of the best men I ever knew. My dad always got his hair cut at their barber shop. Sometimes, when I pass where the shop used to be, I can still smell the wonderful scent of the powder they would brush on after a haircut and hear the laughter after the stories and jokes they would share. - Carol Salato Myers
