I moved to Poteau on Veterans Day in 1977. The first thing I did was eat an “Arlie” burger from the A&M Food Market. I loved them, and I was hooked on them for life.
The second place I went was Wimp's Barber Shop to get a hair cut for the upcoming holidays. Exactly 36 years later, I was in Wimp's Barber Shop getting my son, Jacques, a haircut. Sherri was cutting his hair, while Wimp is cutting 4-year-old Kriston Rylan Stewart's hair. Kriston was getting a Marine-military style haircut — short. That's the haircut we always got for years. Kriston's dad is active in the military, so that's why he got a buzzcut like his dad.
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and veterans.
Have a great weekend.
