Hi, Jerry

Thank you for the book, which I found upon my return to Santa Cruz from Cambridge.  For some reason I thought you had left Santa Cruz long ago (perhaps the confusion was related to another barber named Jerry).  Anyway, I’m glad to see that you’re still turning out books and cutting local hair.

I’m flattered to have been given a chapter in the book, along with the other greats.  I appreciate the compliments.  Some of the references in the book brought back memories of the Santa Cruz that was when I arrived in 1972..  Who remembers Leask’s, for example?

Anyway, thanks again and good luck to you.
