Today I had my hair cut. It was actually a few days later than I’d planned because a deer broke into the salon last Thursday and made quite a mess.

Seriously.

So today I sat in the chair at Cape Landing Salon as Jetty (who’s been cutting my hair for years) told me the story.

Jetty explained that a deer had been hit (or walked into a car–unclear) downtown then somehow broke through the glass doors of the salon. Oddly, it didn’t knock over fixtures or displays but it did meet its end inside the shop bathroom.

The salon was closed for a couple days to get the place cleaned up for business. Today was Jetty’s first day back, so she was booked.

I’m grateful to Jetty for letting me make these pictures while she worked. And I apologize for the fuzziness of the first two images. I wasn’t wearing my glasses so it was hard to see what was in focus.
