Leo the Surfer Meets Fred the Barber, Who Loves Tiny Homes

“Hello Lloyd,

    A few weeks ago I got a new barber in Huntington Beach at the Surf City Barber Shop.  My old barber retired.   As I was sitting in the chair I noticed on the table Tiny Homes, I asked Fred the Barber about it and he said he loved the book and it was almost worn out because it was the most popular thing to read in the shop.  Some day Fred says he wants to get some land and build a tiny home.  Tonight I am off to Costa Rica for 6 weeks, warm water surfing.

   Thanks for the good hair cut Fred.

Leo (Hetzl)”
