Here are his lovely golden locks before I hacked them off! He was beginning to look a bit like a ragged duckling! But every time I tried to get near him with a pair of scissors he ran away screaming so I was thinking he was going to end up wearing it long when our friend suggested using clippers. So we buzzed daddy's hair first so he could watch and then took the long blade to him. He didn't like it very much but at least he doesn't look like a ragged duckling any longer.
