From Sydney Dearing ('56) of TN - 03/29/10 - "Haircut Memories":
|Years after the attached picture was taken, whenever Mom showed it, nobody would believe it was me. It is a hand tinted studio portrait. Mom had resisted all attempts to cut my hair up to this point. She didn't want to cut off my blond curls. She finally realized that she would have to consent to it sooner or later but she insisted that she have a formal picture taken before she would allow it. She said I was about one and a half years old at the time, too young to remember this incident but I do remember going to the barber shop with Dad when I was a little older.|
Back then, the barbershop was kind of a gathering place where men would sit around and talk, both before and after getting their hair trimmed (kind of like on the Andy Griffith Show). I always felt kind of special being in there with the men and older boys. Dad was always friendly and outgoing and everybody knew him. Whenever we walked in someone would always say "Here comes big Syd and little Syd." Even later when I grew to be taller than he was he was still big Syd and I was still little Syd. When it was my turn to climb up in the big chair, the barber would bring out his special seat for little kids and would lay it across the arms of the chair. I liked climbing up on the seat and having the big sheet tied around my neck but what I liked best was when the barber pumped the handle and made the chair go way up in the air so he could reach my hair. When he was finished he would spin the chair around a couple of times and stop it so I could see myself in the mirror. Then he would ask me if I thought it was okay. Dad told me I would always grin and say "Yes sir." I knew my manners and always said "yes sir" and "yes ma'am" and "thank you."
OOOH, it most certainly does, Sydney! Thanks so much!

And who could blame your mama for not cutting those beautiful blond curls?? What a precious little baby you were!

Jerusalem of Gold
The air of the mountains is as clear as wine
And the fragrance of the pine trees
Is lifted upon the evening breeze
With the ringing of the bells
And in the deep sleep of the tree and the stone
Held captive in a dream
The city which sits alone
And in her heart, a wall
Jerusalem of gold
And of copper and of light
For all of your songs
I am the harp
How the water cisterns have dried up
The city square is empty
Nobody goes up to the Temple Mount
In the Old City
And in the caves of the rocks
And no one goes down to the Dead Sea
Upon the Jericho Road
Jerusalem of gold...
Although I come to sing to you today
And to tie crowns upon you
I am less than the youngest of your sons
And the last of the sweet singers
For your name singes the lips
Like the kiss of the serpent
If I forget thee, oh Jerusalem
She is completely golden
Jerusalem of gold...
We have returned to the water cisterns
To the marketplace and the square
A shofar calls out on the Temple Mount
In the Old City
And in the caves in the rocks
A thousand suns shine forth
And again we will go down to the Dead Sea
Upon the Jericho Road
Jerusalem of gold...
