“Travels to a Different Time” : 20May1975: First Haircut in 3 Years Ends My Gypsy Frightening Potential

Instead of the midnight bus to New York from Montreal it will be the midnight DC-10 from New York to Vienna. To avoid being set up for narcotic smuggling and to prevent gypsies from running away from me in terror I went for my first haircut in 3 years. It was not the traumatic experience I expected it to be. Actually it looked pretty good. It was $12 and I gave the ”stylist” Adrienne a $2 tip. I met Barb’s current beau Jeff at a bar called Hannibal’s and had a couple of beers and a bowl of chili. Then to McDarby’s for another round. Headed back to the apartment for a quick shower and a final pack. Mom phoned and said Barb was waiting for me at the American Airlines Terminal at Kennedy airport but was too tired and was heading home. I grabbed a taxi to Port Authority and got the bus to Kennedy. After several tries to get through the metal detector, I made it and boarded the plane. We taxied around for an hour before rumbling down the airport tarmac to Vienna. Sehr Gut!
