Didn’t Ace the test

Peaches on one side of the river, apricots on the other, but that makes it sound like I’ve done more than I have so far.

Meantime there’s a picture for this:

Richard is forever losing his combs. My last-resort option was a Tupperware party favor eons ago and he can’t take it because I can’t replace it. Dang it’s ugly (protectively so: for the life of me I cannot picture him ever wanting to put THAT in his pocket) but it’s great. Lives in my purse.

So I went looking and found the familiar old Ace. Those have always lasted forever, right?

Turns out that that 150 year old company sold out to the usual origins of cheap shoddy stuff overseas and their classic Hard Rubber dating to the Civil War is no more. He used it today for he thinks the third time ever and then showed me.

So I went looking tonight. Kent brand sounds good on (pixel-based) paper. I know, I know, we just sang that song, but we’ll see how it turns out.

A simple pocket comb is not something I ever thought I’d have to ask for recommendations on, but if you’ve got suggestions I am here for it because you know he’s going to lose that new one in no time.

Or maybe he’ll finally find that this one’s worth making sure he hangs onto it, I mean, I know I did.

My curly haired son buys similar looking combs made by Ryshi at RiteAid to comb his hair and beard. Both are longer than Richard’s hair. He loses them occasionally, too, but said he’s never had them bend like that.

Maybe a fork?

I’ll close the door on my way out

Where does Richard get his hair cut? See if the barber will sell him one to try.
Does he know anyone with a 3D printer?
Best my brain can do on a Saturday morning lol

how about one of those retractable key chains – only with a comb attached.
Or he “could” shave his head which would solve the comb problem……
