Get your hair cut here!

In Spanish Springs there is a barber/stylist anxious to get your business. I'm surprised the shop was allowed to put their sign on the sidewalk. Seems a bit like littering and could cause loitering!

The prices seem reasonable. But why does it cost more to cut a woman's hair than to cut a man's hair? Something is wrong with that picture. And what meaneth the word, "beauty"? Maybe the women get a hair cut and a beauty treatment?

Golf car gathering

They drive in from their gated communities to gather at the Spanish Springs town square where they can partake of 2 for 1 drinks, listen to good music and dance the night away.

Many of them park their golf cars here.

Waiting at the theater

Both the Spanish Springs and Lake Sumter Landing downtowns have nice theaters. I spotted this lady waiting at the Spanish Springs theater. I don't know if she had seen a movie and was waiting for a ride home, or if she was waiting for someone to join her for a theatrical presentation.

Whatever the situation, it's a comfortable place to wait.

Staircase in Spanish Springs

I love staircases. I photograph most every staircase I find. I liked this one because of the graceful, curving lines and how the early evening light hits the upper portion of the buildings.

It leads to offices on the second floor of this building. It is to be found in the Spanish Springs hometown. I'll probably post more staircases in the future.

Waiting on the corner, watching all the cars go by...

I know that title is not how the song goes, but this gentleman was not watching the girls go by, he was looking for his spouse, who he had last seen, I think, across the street in the Spanish Springs town square where people were dancing up a storm and Happy Hour (2 for 1 drinks) was underway.

His wait was rewarded. After a few minutes, he spied her, waved, and ran across the street where I'd like to say he swept her into his arms, but he didn't do that; he just smiled and nodded and they went off with another couple.

Hear At Last

It isn't any secret that some of us, as we grow older, find that we don't hear so well anymore. We need help. Hear At Last, in Spanish Springs, offers help for the hard of hearing. But, take it from me, help for the hard of hearing does not come cheap!

Dancin' to the music and for the camera

The band is playing across the street in the gazebo at the Spanish Springs town square. This couple wanted to dance on the corner. I encouraged them and said I would take their photo. So, they got out there and danced, to the music and for the camera!
