So, with only one pair of clippers with us on the trip being owned by Chris while it's Franci who is sitting with a very very thick black beard which desperately needs to be trimmed...there is only one result....Chris, in his very strong bargaining position has the power over the destiny of Franci's beard. The final terms established were that Franci was only allowed to cut his beard using Chris's clippers (a razor is no longer a possibility in this case!) on condition that Chris could choose the "style"!!


So after being called a yeti by Rob Freercks, Franci finally came to his senses and handed over his face to the crafty hands of Chris for his first trim. I will have to use the pictures to explain it as it's not easy to describe the technique used (Chris's hand grabbing Franci's forehead to keep him still) or the atmosphere created as Franci's slightly nervous wife stood as a not-so-quiet onlooker...Lara was not much of a support as she waited excitedly for the outcome!


Exhibit A...The candidate before the much-needed trim munching on some mielie!

















Exhibit B...There's no turning back!















Exhibit C...Chris's technique...take note of the very dirty hands...those of a true mechanic
















Exhibit D...The first outcome... 
















Fortunately, it turns out that Chris is a better friend than we thought he was as he did not leave his client in that state but decided to finish him off with some smashing lamb-chops, 70's style. Jo is very pleased as according to her, those side burns reflect something very close to Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice!!







Exhibit E...The final outcome of a pretty successful trim.

ha ha ha, I really laughed out loud at this one. Finally got time to 'catch up' with you guys, was feeling a bit er left in the dusted, and proceeded to read most of your blog entries. Glad to see you are having a royal adventure! And I say to myself, who needs tv when you've got your blog to read! Miss you all and thinking of you stacks. xx Birg
ps. I did try and convince Ntsekhe to do a soccer ball at the back of his head with his clippers...I'm still trying...

This is good news indeed! Now you need to follow suit and return Nikki's doing by cutting her hair. I recently gave Jo the fashionable 'mushroom' cut, which did not go down too well (surprisingly) but once I recovered with a Jennifer Arniston (???) swish and an Avril Leveen (???) 'scruffy back' look, she was finally happy!
Good luck on your side

Hey Rude that makes my facial hair problem look mild - would have been awesome for us to have a beard off as Chris is no where near our class. Hope all is well. Cheers Zane, Doob and Mia

Hi Guys, Franci beard looks great, all the best guys have beards...look at the Bible-I mean it's only people like Pontius Pilate and the Phillistines who are clean shaven...Chris did I see a beard growing?

Praying for you all that you would be encouraged and delight in God's creation. We are all well and aware of God who is sovereign over all things and completely trustworthy.

All our love,

Alan@Gaby
