Thought this might be a hoot. Found this old pic of my wife and I with Mom when the folks were visiting us in Ossining, NY. Please take special note of how skinny
the still cigarette smoking saltydad was. Note also the hair, black hair
! This was in the early '80s.
In contrast, here I am scarfing down food at a WNFF Meetup at Famous Dave's in Virginia a few years ago. I'm the fellow in the front with the 'deer caught in headlights' expression and the trademark beard. Note the belly and the paucity of hair at the apex point, and it's grey!
