Note: Thomas recalls working as a lather boy at the barbershop in addition to his work in the mines. The miners shaved only once a week, on Saturday night. Tom relates some banter between the barber and a customer. Alan called this story "Catchin', all right" on the tape box, as that is the phrase on which the banter is based.
