Almost Cut My Hair (Oh wait, they did!)


Almost cut my hair

It happened just the other day

It was gettin’ kind of long

Could-a said it was in my way

—David Crosby, “Almost Cut My Hair”


David Crosby may have been more of a cat guy, at least back in the day. But today he lives in rural California and reportedly has a number of dogs. And yes, all that hair remains— thin and gray, but still long. When he does need a trim, I understand his wife cuts his hair. But mostly, Crosby keeps it flowing.

But as the writer of an iconic hippie anthem, what would Croz have to stay about this?


The groomer finally got to Sam, or should I say, we finally got Sam to the groomer. It had to be done. Knots and snarls galore. It is the Covid-cut, if you will. Half of our dog is gone. But this time, sorry David, it was the right thing to do.

No longer does Sam’s “freak flag fly.”

  1. Chester is way overdue for his summer buzz cut too! We hope his groomer, Miss Jacquie, can fit him into her schedule soon. (Oh, and if you remember that song, then I know how old you are. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one remembers it.)
