Yesterday, I got a haircut.  Looking at the cut hair I noticed that there was a lot of silver (some incorrectly call it gray) hair pieces.  When I was working, some follow workers told me that by cutting my beard I look much younger.  At that time, I figured looking older was a good idea.  My job was evaluating the job performance or training of nuclear operators; so I figured that looking older would give me an advantage in that they would either look on me as a father figure or figure that I was not as sharp as I was.

I looked at a picture of me with my lovely wife and youngest son and noticed that I did not have as much silver (actually none).  Some people might think from this spotty evidence that I was getting older!  Since I feel that you are as old as you act, I can't be older that 25 or 26.  Interesting that I have a 40 year old son; it is amazing the wonders of creation. Plus I have a sexy wife who looks young!

OLD, adj.  In that stage of usefulness which is not inconsistent with general inefficiency, as an old man. Discredited by lapse of time and offensive to the popular taste, as an old book.

    "Fresh every day must be my books and bread."
    Nature herself approves the Goby rule
    And gives us every moment a fresh fool.   Harley Shum  (DD)
