St. Pete veteran fulfills promise by walking unassisted into barbershop

Barbers are used to seeing clients with wild heads of hair, but the owner of St. Petersburg’s Billy’s Corner Barbershop called Thursday’s trim a first for him. “We’re happy to be a part of it,” said Billy Hume. “We’ve been talking about it all week.” Bob Turnbull had never stepped foot in Billy’s Corner Barbershop before Tuesday. He wanted to meet the people who he’d visit later in the week for his first haircut in 2 1/2 years.
