TALES OF OLD BIG SANDY: Ament's Barber Shop - The Disneyland of Big Sandy
January 15, 2020
I was born in 1956, so somebody cut my hair before George Ament and his wife Penny moved to town and took over the barbershop. Somebody cut it, but I don't remember who it was. My first memory of a haircut is my first memory of George. For me, he was the Big Sandy barber.
I could look it up somewhere, but since I am more about anecdotes than accuracy, I am not going to bother: I think George came to Big Sandy in about 1962. I believe he came from Minnesota. He probably thought he was going to have a nice, peaceful, quiet time of it in a tiny town in north-central Montana.
From the time...
