  • Congratulations Max! Thanks for the great friendship all these years and the great conversations about Indiana & Purdue basketball-

    as well as the great haircuts!

    Sorry, I ran out of Purdue checks to pay for my last haircut this week.

    Now, where will we go to learn of all the happenings in Putnam County?

    I'm now 62 years young and I've only had two barbers in my life- Broady in Fillmore and you for the last 52..

    Hope you and Jeanette have a great retirement!

  • Thanks for the haircuts for my husband! He spent 26 yrs in the Army and after his retirement he was worried he wouldn't find someone to give him that "military cut" till he found you! He now doesn't know what he's going to do for a haircut. I told him it's just time to shave it! LOL

  • Sincere congratulations on reaching the milestone of retirement and its reward of free time to pursue your personal interests and enjoyments. It should be no challenge for you to become a well traveled, scratch golfing, family scholar with a major in grandchild athletics observing given the personal talent and skills attained during your professional career. Cindy and I wish you the best of luck and continued success in the next 42 (and more) years.
