Re: You might just be a Barbershopper if...
- You just might be a barbershopper if you hear about someone you have heard
of but never met who has a serious problem and get all of your friends and
your church members praying for him/her. Big hearts come with the

> It's funny that "You know you're a Barbershopper if" has just come up,because a funny thing happened to me while I was in Fort Worth. I was
walking around downtown one day, and four men were walking toward me who
were all wearing the same outfit. Knowing that there is a lot of quality
Barbershop in that area, I asked them what the name of their quartet was.
They gave me very strange looks as they walked passed me and into the
restaurant--where they worked--and were required to dress alike...
I am a paramedic by profession, and just last night, as my partner and I
returned a nursing home patient to her bed, I found my attention being drawn
toward a large conglomeration of family photos framed and hanging on the
wall opposite her bed. Among the pictures was a shot of four men, all
wearing white polo shirts, standing together in what could be interpreted as
a quartet-like stance. With her Nurse standing in the vicinity, I asked my
patient if her son was a barbershopper, and was slightly embarrassed to
learn the he was not.
'Barbershopping on the brain,' I began to think, until her Nurse started
laughing and told me that she [the Nurse] is a Sweet Adeline herself!
I'm only just beginning to learn how much we proliferate!
