56 and Counting

I turn 56 years old today (295 in dog years), an accomplishment to which I have devoted my entire life. I have the knees of a 40-year-old, the hair of a 60-year-old and the eyesight of an 80-year-old.


Here’s me modeling two of my favorite birthday gifts.

 By way of back story, I’m summarizing my life so far in three acts: Growing Up Catholic (age 0-18), Protestant Reformation (age 19-50) and Post Enlightenment (50-present). I’m writing these as “Pages” (available in the sidebar) since they are somewhat longer and more permanent than a typical post. Check out the first act if you’re interested.

  1. Will people who don’t know you as well as I do realize that the chest hair you are sporting in this picture is actually a “piece” or are you putting on “hairs”???

    As for the glasses, I think with those on you can face anything. The masses around you will probably only see a goof ball who may or may not have escaped prematurely from the home and not the sensitive, serious fellow you really are.
