Joef ...... I like that idea for the hair-cutter  :D:o;D!   

Any humorous stuff helps prepare for baha!  Yesterday, I was wearing the Divino tester (a real ugly thing) during choir practice before service.  Of course I got comments and questions.  Best retort was .... I'm now with the CIA and I'm checking things out cause Pres Obama is gonna worship here today    8)

..... OK OK ya had to be there ......  ::)

Greg,

I'm sure it was a very funny bit saying you were checking the place out for the Obamas.  I also think your idea about the hair stylist might be funny, but to tell you the truth, the first haircut I had after my BAHA surgery didn't even make the guy who cuts my hair bat an eyelash although he was pretty taken aback when he say the scar from my AN surgery (who wouldn't be though).  He said he's seen the BAHA abutment  before and would have known what it was if I hadn't already told him.  I guess they do see all kinds of thiings in that kind of job.

Jan .. oh sure I work for the CIA, owned by Chuck, Inez and Alfie .... we make widgits .... it's a real fine company!

Mike, the D-tester does work well, except in noisy situations.  Think It'll help more in less-noisy places where I still would need ... or desire ... to hear those on my right.  Based on what you all say here, I'm looking forward to the real thing helping me hear the tenor in choir, carpoolers when I drive, roller coaster screamer, and specially my wife (DUH!)  ::)   ;D

Wendy, re hair cutting, I gotta watch it if hair's a bit long.  In summer, clippers might be used for a shorter cut.  Think I should tell them so there are no mishaps ..... damaged abutment  :o  or damaged clippers.   :-X  I would guess less possibility of a problem with styling womens' hair.

Keep  ;D-ing !
