When I was growing up this is what these guys looked like, myself included.
We no longer look this way, but it’s important to note that all of us travel through life in the same progression.
We all know what youth looked and felt like, because at one time, we were also maladjusted teenagers pulling figure-8’s on someone’s golf course in the middle of the night.
I bring this up also because in spite of the fact that youth is still a middle-aged man’s most precious commodity, I never appreciated it until it was gone.
Now I pay through the teeth for it.
